“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])

Un travailleur de Fukushima : “Mitsubishi Heavy Industries essaye de rompre ses liens avec Areva”


Article lié : 3 vice-présidents de la nouvelle filiale de Tepco pour Fukushima proviennent des constructeurs de centrales : Mitsubishi, Toshiba et Hitachi GE

Le gouvernement japonais et Tepco restent au plus près de la politique du “tout japonnais” pour éliminer les capitaux étrangers du démantèlement de la centrale de Fukushima.

Or, les 3 vice-présidents de la nouvelle filiale de Tepco comportent un membre de Hitachi GE Nuclear Energy. En outre, la commission de conseils extérieurs est constituée de membres des USA et d’Angleterre. (cf. Les représentants américains font défaut dès la première réunion du groupe d’experts étrangers sur le démantèlement de Fukushima)

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.

Fukushima Diary suit ce travailleur depuis longtemps. Il est très probablement impliqué dans le démantèlement de Fukushima en réalité, au vu de ses connaissances pointues sur la situation et les détails de la centrale. (cf. Un travailleur de Fukushima anonyme : “Le médecin a diagnostiqué une pneumonie à mycoplasmes, la gorge comme un ulcère gastrique”)


Vous pouvez lire ceci parce que nous avons survécu jusqu’à aujourd’hui.

  1. Exclusion of International groups from critical national matters such as defense, makes excellent sense. Japan, like most other USA allies, is considering their national defense efforts.

    Japan probably should develop a nuclear weapon inventory. China, Russia and North Korea are nuclear weapon nations, and long-time adversaries of Japan. The USA is presently an unreliable military ally. Ukraine, subject to treaty provisions, requested military assistance and got a UPS commercial shipment of MREs and socks. No USA weapons are forthcoming.

    Japan is well advised to upgrade their self-defense force to a credible military capability. The ongoing Aircraft Carrier production effort is an appropriate national defense effort.

  2. Fukushima is a regional problem.

    The atomic weapon club nations of USA, England, France, Russia, China, Israel and North Korea, may be using the IAEA, Non-Proliferation Agreements, WHO and the like, to PREVENT legitimate national defense by Japan.

    That would be unwise and very unfortunate. Atomic Weapon construction is relatively simple, for a nation with isotope separation capabilities. Japan is entitled to a credible military capability.

    However, it appears to me, that Japan is somewhat out of their depth, in the Fukushima cleanup effort. Thus I would hope that SOME mechanism is present to include international cooperation on the Fukushima Cleanup Effort.

  3. Nested Comment

    Pakistan, India, North Korea and Israel have developed atomic weapons; outside the approval imprimatur of the grandfathered nations. Japan, Iran and perhaps other nations will soon likely achieve nuclear weapon capability.

    The USA is presently unwilling and/or unable to honor international mutual defense agreements, territorial integrity, and similar treaty provisions to EU, NATO and Ukraine. The recent Russian Republic excursion into Crimea has highlighted the strategic vulnerability of non-nuclear nations. The failure of the USA nuclear umbrella and Pax Americana, under Barack Hussein Obama, has accelerated the international sovereign necessity for nuclear weapons.

    Many additional nations will likely soon deploy nuclear weapon systems.

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.
