Following up this article.. [300m3 leakage] Tepco found 2 leaking bolts in the tank / The bolts are not loosened [URL]
Tepco has been dismantling the tank since yesterday that experienced the 300m3 of leakage. The structural flaw may cause other tanks of the same type to leak commonly. Tepco is investigating the potential leaking points.
From their inspection, they found 2 holes around the bolt parts, which are 3mm × 11mm and 3mm × 22mm.
The flange parts were rusting inside and outside. The bottom parts of the tank were found severely deteriorated.
Depuis hier, Tepco démonte la citerne qui a connu la fuite de 300 m³.
Les erreurs de conception de ce type de citerne peuvent amener les autres à fuir facilement. Tepco recherche les points pouvant provoquer ces fuites.
Leurs inspections ont permis de découvrir, près des parties boulonnées, 2 trous, de 3 × 11 mm et 3 × 22 mm.
Les parties jointives sont rouillées des deux côtés, à l’intérieur comme à l’extérieur. Le fond de la citerne est sérieusement détérioré.
Les informations ne sont pas la vérité, elles sont la réalité virtuelle dans laquelle leurs sponsors veulent nous voir vivre.
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.
