Tepco “Stack was possibly damaged by reactor1 explosion”

On 9/26/2013, Tepco announced they are starting to assume the stack was damaged by reactor1 explosion blast in 311.

They stated it was due to the primal quake of 311 in the beginning. However, the other stack for reactor3 and 4 was not damaged though it shares the same structure.

The radiation level is near 10 Sv/h below the stack, it is extremely difficult to implement the decommissioning task there.

Le 26 septembre 2013, Tepco déclarait qu’ils commençaient à supposer que la cheminée avait été endommagée par le souffle de l’explosion de mars 2011.
Au départ ils affirmaient que c’était à cause du premier séisme du 11-3. Or, l’autre cheminée, celle des réacteurs 3 et 4 n’avait pas été abîmée alors qu’elle a exactement la même structure.
La radioactivité est près de 10 Sv/h sous la cheminée, il y est extrêmement difficile de travailler au démantèlement.

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.
