On July 14, the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) presented a new plan to prepare four new storage areas at its Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (NPS), and to increase the total storage tank capacity for contaminated water by some 100,000 cubic meters beyond the existing plan to increase storage capacity.
TEPCO had already formulated a plan to increase tank capacity by about 800,000 cubic meters by the end of FY14 (March 2015), and by a further 30,000 cubic meters in a new area where tanks would be built.
The new plan is in addition to that, and aims to deal with uncertainties arising from delays in carrying out measures to prevent groundwater inflow, as well as to establish a reliable purification plan with sufficiently ample capacity. –
