A major piece of debris was dropped into SFP3 while they were removing debris from the pool, according to Tepco.


The dropped debris was the operation desk of the refueling machine.

Around 12:45 of 8/29/2014 (JST), Tepco attempted to grab the operation desk by an unmanned crane, but they dropped it to the middle eastern side of the pool.

The ambient dose near the pool remains 3.2 mSv/h, which is not changed after the accident, Tepco announced.


At this moment, Tepco is investigating the state of the pool.

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.
