Most Fukushima workers are taking New Year’s Holiday from today

Most of Fukushima workers are going to leave Fukushima plant for New Year’s Holiday.

A Fukushima worker “Happy11311” commented on Twitter.


As Fukushima Diary reports daily, nothing has been improved to control contaminated water, they can’t even evaluate the risk of Spent Fuel Pools of Reactor 1 ~ 3. (cf, Tepco released photos of Reactor 1 / Fuel handling machine barely hung just above SFP [URL]) (cf, 6 t of contaminated water leaked from ALPS / 720,000 Bq of all β nuclide leaked to environment [URL 2])


Tepco hasn’t made an explanation why they don’t take shift system. It is not known how they are going to settle the plant if another quake or Tsunami hits the plant while most of the workers are leaving.

Most of the Fukushima workers are starting to take New Year’s Holiday from tomorrow. Looking back, we couldn’t take New Year’s Holiday in 2011 and 2012. ・・・ We must appreciate the rest of workers who continue working in Fukushima plant during the holiday season.

La plupart des travailleurs de Fukushima sont en vacances de fin d’année à partir d’aujourd’hui


La plupart des travailleurs de Fukushima vont quitter la centrale pour les vacances de fin d’année.
“Happy11311”, travailleur de Fukushima, l’a déclarer sur Twitter.

Comme le Fukushima Diary le rapporte quotidiennement, rien n’est venu améliorer la gestion des eaux souterraines, ils n’arrivent même pas à évaluer les risques autour de la piscine à combustibles (Spent Fuel Pools) des réacteurs 1 à 3.
(cf. Tepco publie des photos du réacteur 1 : la machine à manipuler les combustibles pendue juste au-dessus de la SFP
et 6 T d’eau extrêmement radioactive ont fuit de ALPS : 720 000 Bq de radioactivité β partis dans l’environnement)

Tepco n’a donné aucune explication de l’absence de système de trois huit. On ne sait pas comment ils vont tenir la centrale si un autre séisme ou Tsunami la frappe à un moment où la plupart des travailleurs sont partis.

La plupart des travailleurs de Fukushima entrent en congés de fin d’année à partir de demain. En nous retournant vers le passé, nous n’avons pas pu prendre de vacances de fin d’année en 2011 et 2012. ・・・ Nous devons être reconnaissants envers le reste des travailleurs qui continuent le travail dans la centrale de Fukushima pendant la période des vacances.

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.
