Leaking tank had the bolts inside → Couldn’t be tightened from the outside

Following up this article..300m3 leakage tank had 5 loosened bolts, sealing parts widely detached [URL]


In the press conference of 9/20/2013, Tepco commented the loosened bolts are inside of the tanks.

From the beginning, it is not designed to be able to maintain from the outside. This means Tepco cannot tighten the bolts of other tanks either.

There are 350 tanks of the same type in Fukushima nuclear plant.





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

Lors de la conférence de presse du 20 septembre 2013, Tepco a déclaré que les écrous desserrés sont à l’intérieur des citernes.
Elles ne sont pas conçues au départ pour être maintenues par l’extérieur. Ça signifie que Tepco ne peut pas non plus resserrer les écrous des autres citernes.
Il y a 350 citernes du même type dans la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima.

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.
