Fukushima Daiichi to be reinforced against tsunami via NHK world

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant plans to build additional seawalls along its damaged reactors.

Its aim is to keep another possible mega-tsunami from causing the leakage of highly radioactive water accumulated in the basement of buildings housing 3 reactors that suffered a meltdown following the 2011 quake and tsunami.

[…]

TEPCO has been pumping water into the 3 reactors to cool down fuel that melted. About 46,000 tons of contaminated cooling water and groundwater flowing into the reactor buildings have accumulated, mainly in their basement floors.

TEPCO now plans to move up work to seal the buildings’ entrances and other openings to prevent any more tsunami-related damage.

The company will also extend the coastal seawalls further north along reactor units 1 to 4, and plans to finish the work as soon as possible.
