Fukushima government objects against building sarcophagus on Fukushima plant

On 7/15/2016, Fukushima prefectural government objected against the plan to build a stone coffin on Fukushima plant to METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry).


2 days before, Nuclear Damage Compensation and Decommissioning Facilitation Corporation released the new plan on Fukushima plant decommissioning. In this new plan, building a stone coffin to cover the reactor buildings like Chernobyl nuclear power plant was mentioned.

Uchibori, the governor of Fukushima prefecture officially objected to the government of Japan and demanded to remove nuclear fuel debris and dispose it outside of Fukushima plant instead of sarcophagus.

The governor commented building a sacrophagus in Fukushima is “unacceptable”. Fukushima prefecture would have to give up returning the residents and it would also affect the harmful rumor.

Takagi, Senior Vice-Minister of METI and Nuclear Damage Compensation and Decommissioning Facilitation Corporation apologized and stated they have never considered sarcophagus and will try to complete the removal of all nuclear fuel debris in Fukushima plant.





Downplay it in the beginning, and quietly add more information so nobody notices it. All for not letting the cattle escape. This is their strategy.

La préfecture de Fukushima refuse la construction de sarcophages à la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima


Le 15 juillet 2016, la préfecture de Fukushima a refusé au METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry = Ministère de l’Économie, du Commerce et de l’Industrie) de construire un sarcophage autour de la centrale de Fukushima.

2 jours plus tôt, la Nuclear Damage Compensation and Decommissioning Facilitation Corporation (= Corporation de facilitation du démantèlement et des indemnisations) a publié un nouveau plan de démantèlement pour la centrale de Fukushima. Dans ce nouveau plan, comme pour la centrale nucléaire de Tchernobyl, il est proposé de construire un sarcophage autour des bâtiments des réacteurs.
M. Uchibori, gouverneur de la préfecture de Fukushima l’a officiellement refusé au gouvernement japonais en lui demandant, au lieu de faire un sarcophage, de retirer les débris des combustibles nucléaires et de les mettre ailleurs que dans la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima.
Le gouverneur a déclaré que construire un sarcophage à Fukushima est “inacceptable”. La préfecture de Fukushima devrait alors abandonner l’idée de faire revenir ses habitants et ça contribuerait aussi à alimenter les “rumeurs malveillantes”.
M. Takagi, vice-ministre du METI et dirigeant du Nuclear Damage Compensation and Decommissioning Facilitation Corporation s’est excusé, a affirmé n’avoir jamais envisagé de sarcophage et qu’il allait tâcher de terminer le retrait de tous les débris nucléaires de la centrale de Fukushima.


Minimisez au départ et ajoutez doucement l’information pour que personne ne la remarque. Tout faire pour empêcher le troupeau de s’échapper. C’est leur stratégie.

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.
