In the press conference of 9/3/2013, Tepco commented there is another crack in the base concrete of the tank area. It is estimated that still 12 tanks are on the concrete.

This tank area went through the land subsidence in 2011. Three tanks were on the damaged part, and suspected to be damaged to leak 300m3 of contaminated water.

In addition to the subsidence, the base concrete has another crack. Tepco states it has nothing to do with the weak foundation.

Au cours de la conférence de presse du 6 septembre 2013, Tepco a déclaré qu’il y a une autre cassure dans la base de béton de la zone des citernes. Ils estiment que 12 citernes reposent toujours sur du béton.
Cette zone de citernes a connu un effondrement de terrain en 2011. Trois citernes reposent sur la partie endommagée et sont suspectées d’avoir laissé fuir 300 m³ d’eaux extrêmement radioactives.
En plus de l’affaissement de terrain, la base en béton présente une autre cassure, Tepco affirme que ça n’a rien à voir avec une faiblesse dans les fondations.

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.
