A thermometer of Reactor 2 indicates 89℃ / Reaching 100℃ in 4.7 days at this rate
Following up this article.. Thermometer of Reactor 2 indicates rapid increase in temperature again / 79℃ on 5/10/2015 [URL]
The temperature indicated by the thermometer is still rising at 2.3 ℃ per day in Reactor 2.
From the end of April to mid May, the temperature indicated increased by 35℃, which has been in the constant increasing trend.
At 23:00 of 5/14/2015, it reached nearly 89℃. If it keeps increasing at this rate, it would reach 100 ℃ in 4.7 days.
The latest parameter shows a slight decrease lasting for 6 hours. It is not known what is occurring inside of PCV (Primary Containment Vessel) of Reactor 2 but Tepco has not made any announcement on this.
Dans le réacteur 2, la température indiquée par le thermomètre augmente toujours de 2,3 ℃ par jour.
De fin avril à mi-mai, la température indiquée est montée de 35 ℃, ceci de façon continue.
Elle était pratiquement de 89 °C le 14 mai à 23:00. Si elle continue d’augmenter à ce rythme, les 100 ℃ seront atteints dans 4,7 jours.
Les derniers relevés montrent une légère baisse depuis 6 heures. On ne sait pas ce qui se passe dans la PCV2 (Primary Containment Vessel of Reactor 2 = Enceinte de confinement primaire du réacteur 2) et Tepco n’a fait aucun communiqué là-dessus.
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.
