Decontamination system stops working!

Tokyo Electric Power Company on Wednesday stopped using its systems to decontaminate radioactive water at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

It has used the Advanced Liquid Processing System, or ALPS, to remove radioactive substances from contaminated water stored at the site.

TEPCO officials say the crane to remove the
 container from the ALPS stopped working on Tuesday.
The container which stores radioactive substances has to be replaced when it gets full.

On Wednesday TEPCO stopped operating all 3 ALPS systems. It says it may take long time to restart.
The company intends to decontaminate all radioactive water stored in the tanks by March 2015.

Extra safety steps at Ikata nuclear plant shown
Shikoku Electric Power Company on Wednesday presented extra steps to prevent severe accidents at the Ikata nuclear power plant in Ehime Prefecture, western Japan.
Last year, the Nuclear Regulation Authority found that tornado and fire prevention was inadequate in its review of measures to avoid severe accidents at the plant.
The review that the Nuclear Regulation Authority started this July is a step toward restarting the number 3 reactor at the plant.
