Tepco “It takes 2 months to build welded type of the tank”

Following up this article..Tepco’s data shows they’re to run out of tanks in the 3rd week of November [URL]

In the press conference of 9/4/2013, Tepco stated they take 2 months to build welded type of the tank.

They didn’t comment how many tanks they can build at once.


There are two types of tanks in Fukushima plant – Welded and Unwelded.

Unwelded tanks are called Flange type. They are provisional and vulnerable, all the tanks that leaked this time are those unwelded tanks.

There are 350 unwelded tanks in the plant area. It takes only 1 week to build the unwelded tank but Tepco shouldn’t be making them now that more and more tanks are leaking.


However based on Tepco’s own data, it can be estimated that Tepco may run out of the tanks in nearly 2 months from now.

Tepco may have to keep building the vulnerable tanks to increase the potential risk of leakage.





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

Tepco : “Il faut 2 mois pour monter une citerne soudée”


Article lié : Les données de Tepco montrent qu’ils vont tomber en panne de citernes au cours de la 3e semaine de novembre

Au cours de le conférence de presse du 4 septembre 2013, Tepco a affirmé qu’il fallait compter 2 mois pour monter une citerne soudée. Ils n’ont pas indiqué combien ils peuvent en construire en même temps.

Il y a deux types de citernes dans la centrale de Fukushima : Soudées et non-soudées.
Les citernes non-soudées (=assemblées) sont dites de type torique (ou à collerette).  Elles sont provisoires et fragiles.
Toutes les citernes qui ont fuit en sont. Il y en a 350 dans la centrale.
Il ne faut qu’une semaine pour en monter une mais Tepco ne devrait plus en faire maintenant que de plus en plus se mettent à fuir mais, selon les propres données de Tepco, on peut estimer qu’ils vont tomber à court de citernes d’ici deux mois.
Tepco va peut-être être obligé de continuer de monter des citernes fragiles et d’augmenter les risques de fuites.

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.
