[Damaged stack] Tepco “looking for” the way to dismantle / cover the stack for high level of radiation

Following up this article.. Tepco “Stack was possibly damaged by reactor1 explosion” [URL]


Tepco announced they are “looking for” the way to dismantle or cover the damaged stack of reactor1 and 2.

The 28m radius area is off-limits. It’s been the obstacles for the decommissioning works in reactor1 and 2.

Considering the collapsing risk for earthquake, they need to dismantle or cover the stack as soon as possible. However, because the radiation level is 10 Sv/h beside the stack, Tepco hasn’t found the proper way to settle it down yet.





You can ignore the truth but the truth won’t ignore you.

[cheminée endommagée] Tepco “cherche” comment la démanteler / la couvrir contre sa forte radioactivité

Tepco déclare qu’ils “recherchent comment” démanteler ou couvrir la cheminée endommagée des réacteurs 1 et 2.
Une zone des 28 m de rayon est interdite autour. C’est un obstacle pour le démantèlement des réacteurs 1 et 2.
En considérant le risque d’effondrement sur séisme, ils doivent la démanteler ou la recouvrir le plus vite possible. Néanmoins, Tepco n’a pas encore trouvé la bonne méthode pour le faire parce que la radioactivité est à 10 Sv/h à côté de la cheminée.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
