Past Progress (As of 3:00 pm, on July 29, 2012) (PDF 464KB)
With regard to the accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, on April 17, 2011, we have compiled the roadmap towards restoration from the accident and on July 19 we accomplished the Step1 target "Radiation dose is in steady decline". Then on December 16 we confirmed the accomplishment of the Step 2 target "Release of radioactive materials is under control and radiation doses are being significantly held down".
In addition, on December 21, 2011, we have compiled the "Mid-to-long-Term Roadmap toward the Decommissioning of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Units 1-4, TEPCO".
In addition to the maintenance of the plant's stable condition, we will implement Mid-to-Long Term countermeasures towards the decommissioning of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Units 1-4 to enable evacuees to return to their homes as soon as possible and reduce the anxiety of the people in Fukushima and the whole nation as soon as possible.
Below is the status of TEPCO's nuclear power stations (Fukushima Daiichi and Fukushima Daini).
*The updates are underlined.
[Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station]
·Unit 1 to 4: Abolishment (April 19, 2012)
·Unit 5 to 6: Outage due to regular inspections before the earthquake
-At 2:52 PM on July 23, we started transferring the accumulated water from Unit 3 Turbine Building basement to the Central Radioactive Waste Treatment Facility (Miscellaneous Solid Waste Volume Reduction Treatment Building [High Temperature Incinerator Building]). At 9:47 AM on July 29, we stopped transferring.
-At around 9:30 AM on July 29, since two workers from cooperative company who worked for the debris removal at upper part of the Unit 3 reactor building said that they were in bad shape during the outwork, they were transported to the Unit 5 and 6 emergency medical room and had the medical procedure as drip etc. Since the two workers had the disordered consciousness and could not walk by themselves, they were transported to J-village by the ambulance. At 0:08 PM on the same day, they were transported to Iwaki Kyoritsu General Hospital by the ambulance. The workers are under medical examination and treatment by doctors at the hospital. For a reference, no radioactive material was found on the body.
