Tepco “Tank construction can’t catch up with increasing contaminated water” / “Trying to think of the solution”
In the press conference of 9/25/2013, Tepco announced the tank construction can’t catch up with the increasing pace of contaminated water.
According to Tepco, the increasing speed of the contaminated water is too fast. Now they are having a sub-contract company build tanks in one tank area in each time, but they are considering to have two sub-contract companies build tank in two tank areas at once.
They had unwelded type of the tanks leak, so they need to increase the welded type of the tanks. However, they don’t plan to build more welded type of the tanks after this September. Tepco commented they are “trying to think of the solution”.
Au cours de la conférence de presse du 25 septembre 2013, Tepco a déclaré que la construction des citernes ne peut pas suivre la vitesse de l’augmentation des volumes d’eaux extrêmement radioactives.
Selon Tepco, le volume des eaux extrêmement radioactives augmente trop vite. Actuellement, ils ont un sous-traitant qui construit des citernes en même temps dans chaque zone mais ils envisagent d’en mettre deux sur deux zones pour construire en même temps.
Avec le type non soudé qui fuit, ils ont besoin d’augmenter le nombre de celles soudées. Or, ils ne prévoient pas de construire d’autres citernes soudées au-delà de ce mois de septembre-ci. Tepco a déclaré qu’ils “essayaient” de trouver une solution”.

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.
