According to Tepco’s earnings forecast, the consolidated ordinary profit of fiscal year 2013 would be 57 billion yen.

This is released on 1/15/2014, when the government of Japan admitted Tepco’s new business schedule. In this schedule, Tepco assumed they can restart Kashiwazaki Kariwa nuclear plant. The new earnings forecast is based on the assumption that Tepco can restart 2 reactors by August of 2014, 2 more reactors by February of 2015.


Tepco also expects to have 670 billion yen of the consolidated net income for the year by receiving the governmental financial support.

Selon les prévisions de recettes de Tepco, les bénéfices ordinaires consolidés de l’exercice fiscal 2013 devrait être de 57 milliards de yens.

C’est publié au 15 janvier 2014, lorsque le gouvernement japonais a agréé le nouveau plan financier de Tepco. Selon ce plan, Tepco escomptait le redémarrage de la centrale nucléaire de Kashiwazaki Kariwa. Les nouvelles prévisions de recettes s’appuient sur l’hypothèse que Tepco puisse redémarrer 2 réacteurs courant août 2014, et 2 réacteurs de plus en février 2015.
Tepco compte aussi faire 670 milliards de yens de recettes consolidées annuelles en intégrant les aides financières gouvernementales.

  1. Blacklist revenue

    Perhaps after reactor restart TEPCO can afford their blacklist activities. This sounds a lot like the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities circus circa 1950s.

    According to a well-known Japanese documentary maker, TEPCO paid for the creation of a blacklist of actors and musicians who are against the nuclear industry.

    When one actor, Taro Yamamoto, joined an anti-nuclear protest, he lost his part in a popular soap opera. Yamamoto’s ‘crime’ was to say that schoolchildren in Fukushima should not be subjected to the same annual radiation dose (20 microsieverts per year) as nuclear power workers in Europe.

  2. Same 2011 Article:

    The Japanese are now struggling to comprehend how their government could mislead them about the nuclear meltdown that followed the tsunami.

    When the Fukushima nuclear plant exploded on March 12, and again two days later, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the plant’s operator, the government and the media, reassured the nation, and the world, that everything was under control.

    It was not until May 12 that officials conceded that there had been a meltdown at not one, but three reactors. Even the timing of the announcement was cynical. It happened as inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) were about to arrive.

    1. Also From same 2011 article

      TEPCO controlled the press, withheld reactor status and destroyed nuclear industry credibility.

      TEPCO was able to control information through the age-old system of Press Clubs, where the government provides information to selected media.

      But The Mail on Sunday spoke to sources inside the Japanese nuclear industry who knew that radiation readings spiked 155 miles south of Fukushima, immediately after the first explosion. They were told by officials to keep the findings quiet.

      A survey by Fuji Television Network last month found that 81 per cent of the public no longer trusts any government information about radiation.

      1. 和 — 81% distrust

        That is an interesting ‘harmony’ of Public Opinion.

        wa (和) “harmony, peace, balance.”

        Wa is a near synonym for Japan and the Japanese People.

  3. Now to the PRESENT,

    http www japantimes co jp/ (news/2014/01/22/national/barakan-says-broadcasters-told-him-to-avoid-nuclear-issues-till-after-poll/)

    Freelance TV and radio commentator Peter Barakan who hosts the three-hour radio show “Barakan Morning” every Monday through Thursday on InterFM, a private radio station, said he was pressured by two broadcast stations to steer clear of nuclear power issues on his programs until after the Tokyo gubernatorial election on Feb. 9, causing concern among some about possible media censorship.

    “I have been told by two stations (other than InterFM) not to touch on the nuclear issue until the gubernatorial election is over, even though the campaign has not officially kicked off,” he said during the show.

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.
