Tepco released the video of the operation floor of reactor3 on 2/14/2014.

The video was taken on 1/31/2014.

In this investigation, they found out the shield plug subsided by 30cm. Shield plug is the cover on the operation floor. There is the primary containment vessel below the cover.

Tepco is optimistically stating they can’t think it was damaged due to the “hydrogen” explosion because the slab part remains sound. They assume it was hit by the crane, but the crane was found fallen not on the plug shield. They also comment the damage of shield plug doesn’t affect the vessel because there is 1.2 m of the room.

Tepco publie le 14 février 2014 la vidéo de l’étage opérationnel du réacteur 3.
Cette vidéo date du 31 janvier 2014.

Au cours de cette investigation, ils ont découvert que le bouchon au-dessus du cœur du réacteur s’est affaissé de 30 cm. Ce bouchon fait partie du sol de l’étage opérationnel. Sous lui, il y a l’enceinte de confinement primaire.
Tepco affirme de façon optimiste qu’ils ne pensent pas qu’il ait pu être endommagé par l’explosion “d’hydrogène” parce que sa dalle est restée en bon état. Ils supposent qu’il a été percuté par la grue mais cette grue a été retrouvée par terre ailleurs que sur ce bouchon. Ils déclarent aussi que les dégâts sur ce bouchon n’impactent pas l’enceinte parce qu’elle en est à 1,2 m dans la salle.

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.
