quote:TEPCO vows to release ‘all Fukushima radiation data’
quote:The nuclear operator of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has announced that it plans to disclose all data on radiation levels recorded at the site in response to criticism of lack of transparency following the catastrophe.Tokyo Electric Power Co. TEPCO will start disclosing all data sets “as soon as they become available” for release, President Naomi Hirose told a press conference. The utility staffers aim to “break away from our tendency of covering up” information, he added.Takafumi Anegawa, the company’s director, said the amount of data they plan to release will be around double the current level, according to Kyodo.

quote:TEPCO under fire after hiding massive radioactive waste leak at Fukushima for a full yearA major bombshell has dropped concerning the failed cleanup efforts at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. The shuttered plant's operator, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), has apparently been hiding for an entire year the fact that radioactive waste has been quietly pouring into the ocean from an onsite drainage ditch.Sputnik News reports that TEPCO, which is also managing remediation efforts at the site (with guidance from the Japanese government), concealed from the public the fact that highly contaminated radioactive water has been flowing from the drainage ditch directly into the ocean. Local fishermen and others have since expressed outrage over the news."I don't understand why you (TEPCO) kept silent about the leakage even though you knew about it," stated Masakazu Yabuki, chief of the Iwaki fisheries cooperative, according to Sputnik. "Fishery operators are absolutely shocked."The news comes as TEPCO continues to sustain criticism over the way it's handled cleanup efforts since the 2011 tsunami and earthquake took their toll. In recent months, TEPCO has been exposed for attempting to cover up the fact that U.S. Navy sailors were exposed to harmful radiation, as well as concealing true levels of radioactive waste releases into the Pacific Ocean.And this latest revelation only reiterates TEPCO's tarnished legacy, proving that the company can't be trusted with adequately addressing the looming problems that are still present at Fukushima more than four years since the disaster occurred."This was part of an ongoing investigation in which we discovered a water puddle with high levels of radiation on top of the Reactor No. 2 building," contended a TEPCO spokesman as to why the company delayed reporting the leak, adding that "because this also happens to be one of the sources for this drainage system, we decided to report everything all at once."

quote:Fukushima robot stranded after stalling inside reactor
quote:Decommissioning work at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has suffered a setback after a robot sent in to a damaged reactor to locate melted fuel stalled hours into its mission and had to be abandoned.The plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco), said the robot stopped moving on Friday during its first inspection of the containment vessel inside reactor No 1, one of the three reactors that suffered meltdown after the plant was struck by an earthquake and tsunami in March 2011.Tepco, which recently conceded that the technology for robots to retrieve the nuclear fuel had yet to be developed, said on Monday it would cut the cables to the stranded robot and postpone a similar inspection using a separate device.Developed by Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy and the International Research Institute for Nuclear Decommissioning, the robot was supposed to be able to function for about 10 hours even when exposed to radiation at levels that would cause ordinary electronic devices to malfunction.The “transformer” robot, which can alter its shape depending on its surroundings, was sent in to photograph the inside of the reactor containment vessel and record temperatures and radiation levels.

Iedereen met een beetje verstand weet dat het vrijkomen van tonnen radioactieve deeltjes natuurlijk WEL slachtoffers maakt.
