[Notch tank overflow] Tepco “Mistook another hose made of the same material”

According to Tepco, the primal cause of this accident was that they mistook another hose made of the same material.
Because they couldn’t prepare the water evacuation system before the Typhoon season comes, Tepco was requesting the sub-contract company to install the new pipes urgently. However, the sub-contract company misunderstood the order. Tepco stated “there was a mis-communication”.
Moreover, they missed the connection error by mistaking another hose made of the same material.
The competence of Tepco to decommission Fukushima nuclear plant is seriously deteriorating.
Selon Tepco, la cause principale de cet accident a été d’avoir confondu un tuyau avec un autre d’apparence identique.
Tepco avait demandé à un sous-traitant d’installer les nouveaux tuyaux en urgence parce qu’ils ne pouvaient préparer le système d’évacuation avant l’arrivée de la saison des typhons. Or, le sous-traitant a mal compris les ordres. Tepco affirme qu’il “y a eu une erreur de communication”.
Qui plus est, ils n’ont pas vu l’erreur de branchement en confondant deux tuyaux d’apparence semblable.
La compétence de Tepco dans le démantèlement de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima se dégrade sérieusement.

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.
