Tepco not to let any other organization take over Fukushima plant / “We know the plant more than anyone else”

Note : If you are from the international mass media, Don’t read this site before taking a contact with me.


Tepco’s president Hirose stated they won’t let any other organizations take over Fukushima nuclear plant for decommissioning.


Having the continuous accident of contaminated water, Japanese government is considering splitting Tepco. Also world opinion is to doubt if Tepco is capable enough to decommission Fukushima plant.

In the press conference of 10/31/2013, Hirose stated it’s Tepco to know about the plant better than anyone else. In any cases, it will be Tepco to be in charge of decommissioning the plant.




I reject the international mass media to read this site without taking a contact with me.I know some of the mass media corporations read Fukushima Diary to understand the trend so they know when to report about Fukushima as if they were independently following it for a long time.
In short, they make you individual readers pay for this site while they pay nothing, and when they publish the “authorized news”, you pay for the “secondhand news”, which is nothing new for us.
This site is free for the individual readers, but not for corporations.In the world, this site is nearly the only source about Fukushima. I came here alone without any supporting organizations, background or anything. I’m not pleased to be exploited by the corporations that didn’t even properly report about Fukushima when 311 took place. I demand them to take a contact with me BEFORE reading this site whatever the purpose is.

Tepco ne laissera aucune autre organisation s’occuper de la centrale de Fukushima : “On connaît cette centrale mieux que quiconque”
Note : Si vous êtes de la grande presse internationale, ne lisez pas ce site sans avoir préalablement pris contact avec moi.


Le president de Tepco, M. Hirose, a affirmé qu’il ne laissera aucune autre organisation prendre la gestion du démantèlement de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima.

Suite aux accident ininterrompus avec les eaux extrêmement radioactives, le gouvernement japonais envisage de scinder Tepco. L’opinion mondiale doute aussi des capacités de Tepco à démanteler la centrale de Fukushima.
Au cours de la conférence de presse du 31 octobre 2013, M. Hirose a affirmé que Tepco connaît mieux la centrale que quiconque. De toutes les façons, Tepco restera en charge du démantèlement de la centrale.


J’interdis à la grande presse internationale de lire et d’utiliser ce site sans préalablement prendre contact avec moi. Je sais que certaines grandes sociétés de presse lisent le Fukushima Diary pour comprendre la tendance et trouver quand rendre compte de la situation de Fukushima comme s’ils la suivaient indépendamment depuis longtemps.
En résumé, ils vous font payer à vous, simples lecteurs, ce qu’ils prennent gratuitement dans ce site et lorsqu’ils publient des “nouvelles de première main” vous payez pour des “nouvelles resucées”, qui n’ont rien de nouveau pour nous.
Ce site est gratuit pour les lecteurs individuels, pas pour les sociétés. Ce site est pratiquement la seule source au monde sur Fukushima. Je viens ici seul sans aucun soutien d’organisation quelconque, ni références, ni rien. Je n’apprécie pas de me faire exploiter par ces sociétés qui n’ont même pas été foutues de relater correctement ce qui se passait à Fukushima quand a eu lieu le mois de mars 2011. Je leur demande de prendre contact avec moi AVANT de lire ce site dans quelque but que ce soit.

  1. The TEPCO Disease

    TEPCO is a mockery of science, engineering, business and ‘utility’; rather than the embodiment thereof. TEPCO does not conduct any portion of their core business appropriately, or even sanely. It is thus HIGHLY appropriate, that TEPCO is now destitute, orphaned and a ward of the state.

    This mockery extends FAR beyond the corporate entity of TEPCO. In fact ‘The TEPCO DISEASE’ has infected all the regional AC electrical grids, on earth. The electrical grid, is a grossly wasteful energy system from power generation to end-user power consumption. Electrical generation stations in general, and nuclear power plants in particularly, are thermodynamic wastrels, rather than good stewards of the common weal. Electrical motors have incorporated few of the advances of the 20th or 21st centuries.

    Electrical grid stakeholders do not serve their PRIME MISSION of delivering economic power to their customers. They are nominally ‘utilities’, but they have abandoned the concepts of ‘utility’ and usefulness. These incompetent entities attempt to deceive, rob and rule; rather than serve their customers, prefectures (states, provinces) and nations.

    1. AC electrical motors, from an electrical power engineering specialty prospective, presented to a non-specialist engineer, and/or the public, can be described with two (2) energy conversion parameters. These parameters are 1) Power Factor and Wattage. We shall simplify the terminology of power and energy, by using a 1 second time frame; where the two are identical.

      The KEY ‘take-away’, for overall electrical system energy conversion efficiency can be simplified to a combined term called ‘Volt•Amp’ Efficiency. The most effective overall system energy conversion efficiency occurs in electrical motors with the lowest MEASURED amperage (electrical current). These are called ‘High Power Factor’ motors or ‘High Volt•Amp’ efficient designs.

      Two propaganda diversions are often used by the ‘Inefficiency Industry’. One is simple heat generation inside the motor, which is called ‘Real-Efficiency’ or Wattage Efficiency. This propaganda diversion is an attempt to hide electrical system losses which are caused by low power factor electrical motors. It is too narrow a technical term to serve a society or a planet.

      The second propaganda diversion typically relates to the uniqueness of the Wanlass Motors. At the time of their invention, the Wanlass Electrical motor designs were a Quantum Leap forward. Some comparable High Volt•Amp efficiency motor designs have been invented, such as the Otto Smith designs. None have EVER been placed into manufacture or general use; due to the antagonistic actions of the ‘Inefficiency Industry’ as well as their lackeys in government and FLACKS in the global mendacity-media.

    2. A fateful betrayal of Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, the Nipponese people, science, engineering, business efficiency, the Pacific Ocean and Planet Earth.

      Let us consider ONE EXAMPLE, of a technology SUPPRESSED by the Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) stakeholders. This particular suppressed technology would have, in my considered professional opinion, likely have prevented and would have CERTAINLY beneficially and substantially delayed the explosive failure of FDU-2, FDU-3. The FDNPP would not have lost on-site electrical power generation, and would have (likely) not have experienced multiple fires in the Spent Fuel Pools. Likely, only FDU-1 would have failed and exploded, due to a reported catastrophic water pipe breakage.

      Here follow some of the suppressed technology details:

      1. Using ‘Waste Heat’ to generate electrical power

        The suppressed CCLC technology COULD HAVE saved the day, and saved TEPCO stockholder’s bacon.

        Water steam driven turbines work over an operational range of approximately 3,000F down to 850F.

        The CCLC design involves a second fluid (propane) which drives turbines between the temperatures of 850F and about 300F. The CCLC process, IS IN USE, generating electricty, in some free-standing applications, such as petrochemical plant cogeneration facilities.

        However, the nuclear power stakeholders and other players in the grid, killed the BRILLIANT CCLC innovation. In doing so, they quite possibly sealed their own doom.

  2. TEPCO remains a GLOBAL menace.

    Reportedly, TEPCO irresponsibly requested permission to restart Fukushima Reactors FDU-5 and FDU-6. These two reactors were operationally compromised by reportedly directly pumping seawater as a coolant.

    USA reactors have reportedly been banned from start/restart, upon the simple possibility that a fluorescent tube flashlight MAY have ever been on the premises. Presumably because the halogens create ‘some issues’.

    That apparently being the case, how foolhardy to request recertification and restart of a SEAWATER compromised brace of nuclear reactors.

    TEPCO is quite possibly, the LEAST qualified NPP operator, on this orb we call Earth.


    Bill Duff

  3. um … no.

    Seawater was never injected into the reactors of 5 and 6.

    You’ve really got to stop letting your imagination run wild.

    1. The interested reader may wish to review the record, rather than rely upon the recollections, assertions and distortions of V. I. (Village Idiot) Diemos.

      http fukushima-diary com/ (2011/10/news-a-raged-fukushima-citizen-talks-about-everything/) The video is no longer available.

      It might also be appropriate to note that Japan recently REFUSED the TEPCO request to restart FDU-5 and FDU-6.


      Bill Duff

        1. The difficulty is …

          TEPCO, Japan, USA government, mendacity-media, UN groups and the (other) nuclear stakeholders have told so many internally inconsistent Fukushima lies.

          The civilian nuclear power experiment has PROVEN to be an uneconomic, dangerous, polluting and corrupting chapter in human history.

          NOTHING that these stakeholders have EVER said has been reliable and consistently maintained. The TOTAL lack of candor, by the civilian nuclear power industry is what moved me from a ‘tepid supporter’.

          I now favor a drastic REDUCTION in the size of the civilian nuclear power experiment. The USA presently has about 99 active civilian nuclear power reactors, with about 2 new reactors under construction. I would be more comfortable with approximately 10 (5 – 12) civilian nuclear power reactors in operation.

          Certainly, ALL the GE Mark-1 reactors on Planet Earth should be rapidly shut down and dismantled. Certainly the MOX fuel experiment should be IMMEDIATELY termninated, or scaled down to a ~10 MW prototype, located in or near Washington DC.

        2. Actually, one of the links indicates significant radioactive contamination of the effluent water into the Pacific Ocean.

          If the injected water is clean, and the water dumped into the ocean is contaminated; then that would point toward the Unit-5&6 as the radioactive source.

          We COULD ask TEPCO and/or Japan for clarification on these questions. However experience indicates they will just tell us another ‘pack of lies’.

          Let’s just say that the effluent cooling water from any power plant should only have gained heat from the use. There is something VERY wrong going on with the situation at FDU-5&6. For now, we may just have to leave it at that in our differential diagnosis; without a final diagnosis for these SICK reactors.


          Bill Duff

      1. Why?

        Japan governing politicians have decreed that FDU-5 and FDU-6 are to be decommissioned and dismantled. These two nuclear power plants are ‘across the bay’ from the four exploded power plants: FDU-1, FDU-2, FDU-3 and FDU-4. Why has this closure demand occurred, here and now?

        Perhaps FDU-5&6:

        Sustained fuel damage in their reactors and/or spent fuel pools.

        Sustained damage from the atomic blast of FDU-3, from debris, nuclear fallout and/or the neutron swarm/beam/wave/particle and/or EMP phenomena that routinely accompany atomic explosions.

        The ultimate heatsink, the circulating Pacific seawater coolant, has carried radionuclides into the ‘clean side’ of all the heat exchangers, contaminating everything in sight.

        Some combination of the above …


        It is doubtful that FDU-5&6 are ‘spotless/pure/innocent sacrificial lambs’.


        Bill Duff

    2. Here is the story, or at least it is the most recent ‘orchestrated cover story’, regarding FDU-5 and FDU-6.

      http www cnn com/ (2013/09/19/world/asia/japan-fukushima-reactors/)

      Japan’s Shinzo Abe calls on TEPCO to decommission 2 Fukushima reactors

      By Yoko Wakatsuki, CNN updated 10:30 AM EDT, Thu September 19, 2013

      Tokyo (CNN) — Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Thursday that he has asked Tokyo Electric Power Co. to decommission two more reactors at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

      Abe called for the decommissioning of Reactors 5 and 6 “as soon as possible” as he visited the plant, wearing protective gear, to look at efforts to contain leaks from tanks holding huge volumes of toxic water at the plant.

      TEPCO has already said it will decommission the four damaged reactors, but it hadn’t clarified what would happen to Reactors 5 and 6.

  4. Let’s discuss the widespread loss of Nuclear Power Station ultimate heatsink, in eastern Japan.

    http nuclearhistory wordpress com/ (2012/09/23/deliberate-forgetting-ultimate-heatsink-and-the-eccs-independent-heat-sink/)

    We call that the loss of the ultimate heat sink. And the keyword there is ultimate. You need the ocean to pull the water out of the nuclear reactor to keep it cool. But that same water has to cool the diesels to make that happen. The diesels would not have worked even if they had not been flooded. Now this problem that we call the loss of the ultimate heat sink, did not just happen at Fukushima Daiichi I, II, III, and IV. All 6 reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi site experienced it, but also at the Fukushima Daini site, the Onagawa site, and the Tokai site. Between those 4 sites there are 14 nuclear reactors. They had 37 diesels. 9 of them failed because of the tsunami. Those are the ones at Fukushima Daiichi I, II, III and IV. But 15 others failed too. Mainstream media is not talking about that and the nuclear industry is not talking about that either. The diesels were not flooded. What happened was the pumps along the ocean were destroyed, not just for Fukushima Daiichi I, II, III, and IV, but for every one of those sites at least one diesel was knocked out because it could not be cooled.”

  5. Good news from Fukushima

    The good news is that TEPCO no longer plans to build FDU-7 and FDU-8 at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. Another piece of good news is that TEPCO no longer plans to invest in new USA civilian nuclear power plants. (broke – you know)

    Hmmmm … well that’s about the closest thing to good news that comes to mind, as the danger-fraught spent fuel relocation effort begins.


    Bill Duff

  6. The six nuclear reactors at the now ‘hammered’ Fukushima Nuclear Power Station were not all identical ‘peas in a pod’. There are some distinctions and differences. For example, if memory serves, FDU-1… FDU-5 were the horribly defective, failure-prone General Electric Mark-1 design. FDU-6 was the somewhat less disaster prone GE Mark-2 (seriously-flawed) design. GE was the lead A&E firm which constructed FDU-1, which reportedly suffered catastrophic pipe failures in the 311 earthquake. The other 5 Fukushima units were constructed by various partnerships including GE, Toshiba & Hitachi. The actual reactors were variously sourced, with some significant reported manufacturing ‘glitches’.

    Rapid cooling of a nuclear reactor, may create embrittlement whether by turbine expanders and/or other mechanisms at use at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Thus it is a somewhat standard SCRAM protocol to switch these residual heat handling systems on and off, to prevent (quenching/brittle) reactor damage. The metallurgy is complicated but well-known and documented.

    There are a LOT of rock-solid technical reasons why FDU-5&6 may have (likely did) receive damages that are FAR in excess of their ‘value’ to TEPCO and/or Japan.

    Liabilities have no defined economic value. Since virtually all the nuclear reactors on earth are not economically competitive sources of electrical power, they are all worthless. Some reactors are bigger liabilities than others. Probably no nuclear reactor on Earth is an actual financial asset. They exist due to government subsidy, and government mandates, and for no financial marketplace reason.

  7. I actually think that TEPCO may (theoretically) be of some use in the effective, successful decomissioning of the plants at Fukushima, but, as always, it’s probably not even a question of ‘do they know how to fix it’. I’m pretty sure they know how to fix the problem, hell I suspect Abe even knows (roughly) how to go about doing it, the international/domestic media has been riding him and the Japanese nuclear establishment for almost 3 years now. Of course he and everyone else involved have a VERY GOOD IDEA of what should be done. The problem, as always, is money and the unwillingness to part with any of it.

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.
