Tepco can’t find holes at Fukushima Reactor No. 2 It’s leaking like a sieve.

Published: April 18th, 2012  By ENENews       Find Full Article Here:-

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant says inspections using a robot have yet to find serious damage or water leaks at the facility’s No. 2 reactor. […]

TEPCO said the robot found no water leaks or traces in manholes on the north and southeast sides of the [suppression] chamber, where leakage had been suspected.

Workers also maneuvered the robot to check about 90 percent of the upper part of the 125-meter doughnut-shaped chamber, and found no serious damage or deformation. […]

The level of radioactive water accumulated on the plant’s premises keeps increasing. […]

The radiation fields at Reactor No. 2 are comparable to what we see in space…

It’s leaking like a sieve…

No one knows how they’re ever going to remove the fuel in my lifetime… likely for 50, 60, 70 years until some of this radiation decays away… and that’s the good news. Units 1 and 3 they can’t even get into because they’re even worse.
