Tepco received the 30th Financial Support of 110 billion yen / Has received over 4 trillion yen so far

On 7/24/2014, Tepco received the 30th Financial Support of nearly 110 billion yen to cover the compensation payouts up until the end of this August.

Nuclear power is told to be competitive in terms of the cost, however Tepco has received over 4 trillion yen of Financial Support so far.


The press release was as follows.

Today, we have received 105.5 billion yen from the Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund (hereafter the Fund) based on the revised Special Business Plan (New Comprehensive Special Business Plan) approved on January 15, 2014.

This financial support was given in response to the 30th request made in order to cover the compensation payouts up until the end of August 2014, as the sum of the compensation received in accordance with the “Act on Contract for Indemnification of Nuclear Damage Compensation” (120 billion yen) and the financial support provided by the Fund (4.1441 trillion yen) will not be sufficient for the amount of payouts estimated to be required by that time.

With the financial support received from the Fund, we will continue our utmost efforts in implementing the compensation payouts with courtesy and compassion for the last one afflicted by the nuclear damage.

Tepco a reçu un 30e soutien financier de 110 milliards de yens / Total cumulé : 4 000 milliards de yens, pour l’instant


Le 24 juillet 2014, Tepco a reçu un 30e soutien financier de près de 110 milliards de yens pour couvrir les indemnisations jusqu’à la fin août.
L’énergie nucléaire est dite être compétitive en termes de coûts, ceci dit Tepco a reçu plus de 4 000 milliards de yens de soutien financier pour le moment.

Le communiqué de presse est le suivant :

“Aujourd’hui, nous avons reçu 105,5 milliards de yens du Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund (ci-après le Fond) sur la base du Projet d’entreprise spécial (New Comprehensive Special Business Plan) approuvé le 15 janvier 2014.

Ce soutien financier a été donné en réponse à la 30e demande déposée pour couvrir les coûts des indemnisations jusqu’à la fin août 2014, comme la somme des indemnisations reçues en conformité avec le “Act on Contract for Indemnification of Nuclear Damage Compensation” (120 milliards de yens) et le soutien financier fourni par le Fond (4 144,1 milliards de yens) ne seront pas suffisants pour couvrir le montant estimé des dépenses estimées exigibles à ce moment-là.

Avec le soutien financier reçu du Fond, nous allons poursuivre nos plus grands efforts dans l’exécution des indemnisations avec courtoisie et compassion pour jusqu’au dernier de ceux affligés par les dégâts nucléaires.”

  1. Gosh, ~ $45B Japanese Government subsidies, to TEPCO. The PROMISED PLAN, in the USA has been that the Nuclear Power Generators would PAY damages through a FUND assessment on the industry.

    Unfortunately, the Japan civilian nuclear power industry can’t and WON’T pay the damages. If the disaster was in the USA, that would be the circumstance as well.

    Just another Team Nuke Lie.

  2. A Main Stream Press Data Dump

    Already, Japan has 9.3 metric tons of plutonium stored at Rokkasho and nine other sites in the island nation, along with around 35 tons of plutonium stored in France and the United Kingdom. Altogether, Japan has the fifth-largest plutonium stockpile of any nation, representing 9 percent of the world’s stocks under civilian control. The figure includes 730 pounds of high-grade plutonium, the kind preferred by weapons designers, that Japan has agreed to send to the United States.

    Once the Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing Center at Rokkasho opens, the size of this stockpile could double in five and a half years. That’s because Japan is 20 years from completing the first of the reactors designed to burn the plutonium Rokkasho will produce. And an interim plan to burn it in standard reactors depends on a government push to restart the country’s nuclear power industry, an action that faces political and regulatory hurdles.

    When the plant is operating at full capacity, it’s supposed to produce 8 metric tons of plutonium annually. That’s enough to make an estimated 2,600 nuclear weapons, each with the explosive force of 20,000 tons of TNT.

  3. A 1954 cable to the director of the CIA — declassified only eight years ago — called for an “atomic peace mission” to Japan by U.S. nuclear scientists and reactor-company officials to overcome prevailing anti-nuclear sentiment and help “revive the hopes of the deflation-oppressed Japanese in reconstructing their economy.” To carry out what the cable described as “an enlightenment propaganda program,” the agency in particular enlisted the assistance of Matsutaro Shoriki, a former head of the Tokyo police commission in the 1920s who had gone on to become a prominent publisher and broadcaster. The Yomiuri Shimbun, his newspaper, enthusiastically promoted nuclear power and Shoriki himself helped found Japan’s Atomic Industrial Forum, a tight alliance of companies and utilities. He died in 1969.

    Beginning in 1966, Japan started building about one reactor a year. From the start, however, Japan planned to use uranium-fueled light-water reactors — the technology in predominant use around the globe — only until it had created a new energy system based on advanced, breeder reactors, so named because they can both consume and produce plutonium in what in principle could be an endless cycle, almost like perpetual-motion machines. Uranium was initially — and mistakenly — thought to be rare. And breeders, initially predicted to be less costly than conventional reactors, have proven expensive to build, difficult to operate, and hard to secure, provoking France, Britain, and the United States to cut back or close their breeder programs several decades ago.

  4. over 4 trillion yen so far

    chump change : actual “clean up” hasn’t even started yet

    “so far” ? on what

    Fake walls : cosmetic “clean up” make pretty
    Pipe dream : dig holes to “freeze” the area, lol
    Tanks : greatest deception, looks like they are “storing” contaminated water
    Cooling : a term used hide the truth, Flushing is more acurate

    Radiation levels are already on the rise in “decontaminated” area’s

  5. Has Iori Mochizuki-sensei been arrested or detained?

    彼が欠如していますか Is he missing? (Kare ga ketsujo shite imasu ka?)

    Nothing is quite right on his website. Has Iori met with foul play?

    What happened to Iori Mochizuki-sensei?

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.
