“Mitsubishi Heavy Industries trying to quit being in cooperate with Areva”, a Fukushima worker
Following up this article.. 3 vice presidents of Tepco’s new Fukushima company are from nuclear makers / Mitsubishi, Toshiba, Hitachi GE [URL]
The government of Japan and Tepco are sticking to the policy “All Japan” to eliminate foreign capital on decommissioning Fukushima plant.
However, the 3 vice presidents of Tepco’s new inner company include a member from Hitachi GE nuclear energy. Also, the external advisory committee consists of the member from US or England. (cf, Only American representatives made default in the 1st meeting of international group for Fukushima decommissioning [URL2])
When Tepco established the new Fukushima company, it was actually only Areva that was eliminated from the stakeholders.
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries sent a vice president, but Areva, which is supposed to be in cooperation with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries did not send anyone to the board.
On 4/19/2014, a Fukushima worker replied to my pointing this out on Twitter and stated Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is actually wanting to quit being in cooperative with Areva quickly.
He didn’t add a comment on why.
Fukushima Diary has been following this worker for a long time. From his deep knowledge about the plant details and the situation, it is highly likely that he is involved in Fukushima decommissioning in real. (cf, Anonymous Fukushima worker, “Doctor diagnosed mycoplasma pneumonia, throat looked like gastric ulcer” [URL3])
Lorsque Tepco a monté sa nouvelle société sur Fukushima, en fait seule Areva a été éliminée des parties-prenantes.
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries a mobilisé un de ses vice-présidents mais Areva, qui est supposée coopérer avec Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, n’a impliqué personne au bureau.
Le 19 avril 2014, lorsque j’ai soulevé ce point sur Tweeter, un travailleur de Fukushima m’a répondu en affirmant que Mitsubishi Heavy Industries cherchait à mettre rapidement un terme à son partenariat avec Areva.
Il n’a pas précisé pourquoi.

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.
