Following up this article.. Tepco is filling up a part of Fukushima plant port [URL]


By filling up a part of Fukushima plant port, Tepco is going to abandon 13 seawater monitoring posts.

Tepco is going not to have to report the contamination situation in the forefront.

In the press conference of 1/27/2014, they denied that they are trying to conceal the seawater contamination to comment it is because “the contamination situation were different from reactors, but it will be all the same once they complete filling up the part of the sea. They therefore don’t need to have the monitoring posts in front of every reactor.”.


They will add the new monitoring posts but it will be only 2, where they will abandon 13 posts.

Article lié : Tepco comble une partie du port de la centrale de Fukushima

En comblant en partie le port de la centrale de Fukushima, Tepco va abandonner 13 bornes de surveillance de l’eau de mer.
Tepco ne va plus avoir à rendre compte de la situation de la contamination en première ligne.
Au cours de la conférence de presse du 27 janvier 2014, ils ont démenti qu’ils essayaient de censure la contamination de la mer en disant que c’est parce que “la situation de la contamination est différente de celle des réacteurs mais ce sera pareil une fois qu’ils auront fini de combler jusqu’en mer. Ils n’auront donc plus besoin de ces bornes de surveillance en face de chaque réacteur”.

Ils ajouteront de nouvelles bornes mais 2 seulement, alors qu’ils en abandonnent 13.

  1. Not sure what major difference it makes..13 vs 2 wells! Basically not much difference when TEPCO falsifies all the results, witholds results that they dont like or make them lose face, and dont even have the tools to do correct measurements. DUH..and the measurement tools for NRC dont work anyway.they got too contaiminated by high radiation. Excuse me??? Broken by radiation levels is what they mean…

    So, again 13 or 2 if not measured correctly — its still junk and not to be trusted.

  2. Hydraulic pressure is immense. A little slab of concrete, at the shoreline, is at best, a temporary ‘stopgap measure’.

    The radiation contamination depth, is apparently FAR below the imaginary ‘impermeable layer’. Therefore the contaminated water flow (flux) is one or two orders of magnitude greater than the publicized ~ 450 Tons/Day.

    The contaminated water quantities and radioactive levels, both in tanks and subsurface waters, continue their foreboding exponential increases.

    How are ALPS Units #2 and #3 construction projects coming along, for ALWAYS ESSENTIAL redundancy?

    Is a subsea, multi-wall, thick, ventilated, stainless steel tank farm, presently under construction to hold the ALPS TREATED, tritiated water?

    Is a salt dome being prepared to receive, ALPS TREATED, tritiated water, for ALWAYS ESSENTIAL redundancy?

    Has Japan recognized that their CHEAP LYING BULLSHIT, has created a radiation induced Public Health Crisis, at home and abroad?

    Has Japan recognized that their CHEAP LYING BULLSHIT, has DOOMED the prospects of the global civilian nuclear power plant industry (Atoms for Peace), the entire NW Pacific fishing industry as well as the Japan food export industry?

    1. Perspective,

      Allow me to clarify, that the CHEAP-LYING-BULLSHIT of Barack Obama, IAEA, WHO, CTBTO, nuclear reactor contractors and their crack-WHORE throngs of lying trolls, have played excessive, enabling, supporting, collaborative and CRIMINAL parts, in this EPOCHAL disaster.

      It is time to overthrow the vast realm of PSEUDO-science, in favor of candor and objective reality.

  3. We should hope …

    It is SINCERELY HOPED, that Japan will ‘pull their heads, out of their asses’, BEFORE attempting this icy-slushy … FUBAR-SNAFU!

    “field measurements of heave up to 0.05 m per winter lead us to consider frost heaving as a threat to the stability of any engineering design.”

    MECHANISM OF BEDROCK FROST HEAVE IN PERMAFROST REGIONS, Yves MICHAUD and Larry D. DYKE Geological Sciences, Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario K7L 3N6

    Abstract: Frost heaving of bedrock is a widespread process in permafrost regions which may generate forces and movements that detract from the otherwise sound foundation performance usually associated with bedrock. Depending on pre-existing fracture fabric, bedrock heave features may take the form of single ejected blocks or dome-shaped accumulations of up to several meters in diameter.

    The development of excess pressure by water trapped between the permafrost table and downward freezing has been identified as an origin for the forces producing these types of features. Enclosed in the active layer, the water occupying fracture apertures and spaces vacated by heaved rock gives rise to a: pulsating movement The saturated volume determines the amount of heave possible under freeze back.

    Heave occurs when the strength contributed by ice-filled fractures is exceeded by excess water pressure; high water pressure being obtained by an increase in the rate of freezing. Knowing that the main resistance to heave is offered by the weight and the shear resistance of the overlying ice-bonded rock mass, the behavior of frost-heaved bedrock blocks is determined by the mechanical properties of the ice-filling material. Laboratory experiments indicate that even with a freezing rate 60 times faster than in the field situation, the ice filling still deforms plastically. The vertical displacement of bedrock blocks is then characterized by a progressive (increase every time) and relatively slow movement (up to months). However, field measurements of heave up to 0.05 m per winter lead us to consider frost heaving as a threat to the stability of any engineering design.

  4. TEPCO continues to make a bad situation worse, and worse … and worse!

    Use liquid silicon (liquid glass) and/or conventional concrete grouting. Use more zeolite.

    TEPCO to create frozen walls to stop water leaks Jan. 28, 2014 – Updated 20:22 UTC

    The task of creating underground frozen walls is due to start at the Number 2 and Number 3 reactors on Wednesday. Engineers will begin their work by digging vertical holes where the tunnels meet the turbine buildings. Pipes will be installed in the holes to inject liquid coolant to create frozen walls to block the water.

    But cables and other objects in the tunnels could hamper the work. Engineers cannot go there because of the radioactive water, so they have to rely on images sent from remote-controlled cameras. TEPCO hopes to finish installing the pipes by late March and to start removing 11,000 tons of wastewater from the tunnels in May, after the frozen walls are completed.

  5. Soluble silicates

    http www google com/ (url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&ved=0CC0QFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pqcorp.com%2FPortals%2F1%2Flit%2FBulletin_52-53.pdf&ei=ji3pUtmDOpOosAT1yYHABQ&usg=AFQjCNHcJYgUpTDg-GoCqhUPU9_6aYHDhA&bvm=bv.60157871,d.cWc)

    Soluble silicates have been used successfully in chemical grouting and other geotechnical applications for more than 50 years. For soil stabilization and water control during excavation and tunneling projects, silicate grouts offer several advantages:

    Reliable, proven performance
    Safety and ease of use
    Environmental acceptability
    Adaptability over a wide range of applications

    Soluble silicates are generally considered to be among the strongest and least toxic of the existing chemical grouts. Soluble silicates are inorganic, amorphous glasses. Unlike ordinary glass, these silicates are soluble in water, hence the generic name “water glass”. Soluble silicates are produced by carefully fusing high-purity silica sand and either soda ash or potash in precisely controlled high-temperature furnaces. The silicates are then processed into liquid and powdered products with a wide variety of properties.

    Permafrost thawing and frost heaving

    Because thawing of permafrost and frost action are involved in almost all engineering problems in polar areas, it is advisable to consider these phenomena generally. The delicate thermal equilibrium of permafrost is disrupted when the vegetation, snow cover, or active layer is compacted. The permafrost table is lowered, the active layer is thickened, and considerable ice is melted. This process lowers the surface and provides (in summer) a wetter active layer with less bearing strength. Such disturbance permits a greater penetration of summer warming. It is common procedure to place a fill, or pad, of gravel under engineering works. Such a fill generally is a good conductor of heat and, if thin, may cause additional thawing of permafrost. The fill must be made thick enough to contain the entire amplitude of seasonal temperature variation—in other words, thick enough to restrict the annual seasonal freezing and thawing to the fill and the compacted active layer. Under these conditions no permafrost will thaw. Such a procedure is quite feasible in the Arctic, but in the warmer subarctic it is impractical because of the enormous amounts of fill needed. Under a heated building, profound thawing may occur more rapidly than under roads and airfields.

    BP had a sizeable blowout, with 11 fatalities at the Macondo well, in the Gulf of Mexico, There was a large flame in the air, and little else of environmental consequence, until corporate and political measures were initiated. The political ‘damage control’ CREATED a much bigger pollution problem than the initial offshore ‘oil lamp’.

    BP, and elements of the USNavy and Coast Guard of the former united states of America, deliberately scuttled the ship. The sinking ship crumpled the pipe and directly caused the massive oil spill into the Gulf of Mexico. This sorry episode was a preview of coming attractions for the Kenya Native. BP was a major political contributor to Barack Obama, and it showed.

    It is my concern that TEPCO and Japan may be DELIBERATELY attempting to slide the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station into the Pacific Ocean. Scuttling the BP ship was a disaster. Scuttling the FDNPS would, almost certainly, directly exterminate much, if not all of the lifeforms on ‘Planet Blue’, 3rd rock from the Sun. Survival is, and should be, a high priority.

    1. TEPCO is very, very stupid and extremely corrupt.

      The epochal disaster of a FDNPS mudslide into the Pacific would be identical, whether planned or stupid.

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.
