[100 m3 overflow] “Who turned on the wrong valve and why ?” / Still not identified

Following up this article.. Tepco to re-interrogate 43 workers about 100 m3 overflow [URL]


On 3/7/2014, Tepco announced they hadn’t obtained any useful information from the interrogation.

The overflow of 100m3 contaminated water was caused by the wrong valve settings. However, nobody was supposed to work beside the issued valves that day, and also the valve settings were fixed when Tepco went to see the situation. It is possibly someone’s malicious act.


However Tepco still hasn’t found out who was involved and why regardless of their 2 weeks interrogation with over 100 workers. According to Tepco, “expert” is joining the investigation, but none of the details are announced. Some of the local media stated in Tepco’s press conference that this accident revealed Tepco’s vulnerability against “internal threat”. In this case, Tepco can be a victim.





Downplay it in the beginning, and quietly add more information so nobody notices it. All for not letting the cattle escape. This is their strategy.

[débordement des 100 m³] “Qui a ouvert la mauvaise vanne et pourquoi ?” : on ne sait toujours pas


Article lié : Tepco ré-interroge 43 travailleurs sur le débordement des 100 m³

Le 7 mars 2014, Tepco déclare qu’ils n’ont récolté aucune information utilisable avec leurs interrogatoires.

Le débordement de 100 m³ d’eau extrêmement radioactive a été provoqué par un mauvais réglage des vannes. Or, personne n’était supposé travailler sur ces vannes ce jour-là et en plus les vannes étaient correctement réglées lorsque Tepco est venu en constater l’état. Il est possible que ce soit un acte malveillant.

Néanmoins, en dépit de leurs 2 semaines d’interrogatoires d’une centaine de travailleurs, Tepco n’a toujours pas trouvé qui est impliqué et pourquoi. Selon Tepco, des “experts” se sont joints à l’enquête mais aucun détail n’en est précisé. Certains organes de presse locaux ont affirmé au cours de la conférence de presse de Tepco que cet accident révèle la fragilité de Tepco vis à vis des “menaces intérieures”. Tepco peut être une victime dans ce cas.


Le minimiser au début et ajouter tranquillement de nouvelles information pour que personne ne le remarque. Tout pour que le troupeau ne s’échappe pas. C’est leur stratégie.

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.
