Tepco to carry new contaminated water tanks directly from the factory by transport ships

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



Tepco announced they plan to carry the new contaminated water tanks from the factory to Fukushima plant by transport ships.

They may start it this coming April.


Tepco is in the serious shortage of contaminated water storage facility. They try to catch up with increasing water by shipping the assembled tanks directly from the factory.

2 fleets are planned to carry the tanks, 3~7 times a month.

However they need to carry the tanks by avoiding the power lines after unloading. They also need to take care about the potential damage to the tanks.

Tepco annonce qu’ils prévoient de faire venir de nouvelles citernes pour les eaux extrêmement radioactives directement de l’usine à la centrale de Fukushima par bateau.
Ça pourrait commencer dès avril prochain.

Tepco fait face à un e pénurie grave de matériel de stockage pour les eaux extrêmement radioactives. Ils essayent de rattraper le retard en faisant venir des citernes déjà assemblées directement depuis l’usine.
Pour apporter ces citernes, ils prévoient 2 flottilles à faire venir entre 3 et 7 fois par mois.
Après leur déchargement, ils doivent néanmoins les déplacer sans accrocher de câbles électriques. Ils doivent aussi parer à tout dégât potentiel sur elles pendant les déplacements.

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.
