Daily number of Fukushima worker rose up double since one year ago

The daily number of Fukushima worker keeps increasing, Tepco announced in their report published on 12/25/2014.

The number includes subcontract company workers and Tepco employees.

It had been stable around 3,000 workers / day until October of 2013. However it has kept on increasing since November of 2013 and they counted 6,660 workers / day in November of 2014. It was 3,410 workers / day in November of 2013, which was almost half of 2014.


Tepco states more workers are coming from the outside of Fukushima prefecture to suggest they are already running out of the workers within the prefecture.

If it keeps increasing at this rate, over 12,000 workers would participate in Fukushima decommissioning per day by this November.

Tepco hasn’t confirmed if they have enough supply of the workers after this February. It is not announced how they are going to keep the supply of workers.

Le nombre de travailleurs quotidiens de Fukushima a doublé depuis un an


Le nombre de travailleurs quotidiens de Fukushima continue d’augmenter, Tepco le déclare dans son rapport du 25 décembre 2014.

Ce nombre inclus les travailleurs des sociétés sous-traitantes et les employés de Tepco.
Il était resté stable autour de 3 000 travailleurs / jour jusqu’en octobre 2013. Il augmente depuis novembre 2013 et iles en dénombrent 6 660 par jour en novembre 2014. Les 3 410 travailleurs / jour de novembre 2013 représentent pratiquement la moitié de ceux de 2014.

Tepco affirme que plus de travailleurs proviennent de l’extérieur de la préfecture de Fukushima ce qui laisse penser qu’ils sont à court de travailleurs de l’intérieur de cette préfecture.
Si ça continue à augmenter à ce rythme, plus de 12 000 travailleurs par jour devraient participer au démantèlement de Fukushima en novembre prochain.
Tepco n’a pas confirmé avoir assez de ressources en travailleurs à partir de février prochain. Il n’est pas précisé par quels moyens ils vont maintenir leur approvisionnement en travailleurs.

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.
