“Cover removal of Reactor 1 is one month behind the schedule.”

July 31, 2014 at 02:25PM

1 trillion (10^12) Bq of radioactive material is assumed to be released due to the debris removal from Reactor 3 operation floor last summer. The government of Japan requires Tepco not to repeat it to remove the cover of Reactor 1. Tepco is reinforcing the monitoring system around Reactor 1, but there is no fundamental measures to control the dust to be released.

“Le retrait du couvercle du réacteur 1 a un mois de retard sur son planning”


31 juillet 2014 à 02:25

Une radioactivité de 1 trilliard (10^12) de Bq est supposée s’être dispersée l’été dernier à cause du retrait des gravas de l’étage opérationnel du réacteur 3. Le gouvernement japonais exige que Tepco ne recommence pas, ni ne retire le chapeau du réacteur 1. Tepco renforce le système de surveillance autour du réacteur 1 mais il n’existe aucun relevé fondamental pour vérifier les poussières qui vont se disperser.

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.
