Whistleblower: ‘Reactor 4 Is Like A Inverse Pyramid, Very Unstable And Dangerous’ – TEPCO Admits It Can’t Stop Reactor 4 Water Leakage

Whistle-blower “Reactor 4 is inverse pyramid, very unstable and dangerous.” (Fukushima Diary, Feb. 3, 2012):

A Japanese journalist (a former secretary of Japanese prime minister) tweeted about reactor 4.

今夜、某国会議員より、福島第一原発4号機原子炉建屋内使用済み燃料プールの状況を、内部告発した技術幹部から聴きたいとの申し出があり、早速連絡をとることにした。4号機を懸念する声が増している。Source

Tonight, (1/31/2012), a diet lawmaker asked me to take a contact with a Tepco manager who whistle-blew about the situation of the SFP of reactor 4. He is from an engineering department. I took contact with the whistle-blower immediately. More people are concerned about the situation of reactor 4.

He also tweeted about what he whistle-blew.

A Tepco manager from engineering department showed this map of the fifth top floor of reactor 4. This is confidential.
When 311 happened, it was in periodic checkup, large cranes or other heavy facilities were gathered too much. The weight constitution is inverse pyramid, very unstable and dangerous.

The confidential map is below.

Tepco admitted they can not stop water leakage from reactor4, SFP, and pool for the reactor facility which are all connected to each other.
They assert those facilities are all full but water decreases twice as fast as usual from the pool to accept water overflown.
The leaking water is contaminated. It is assumed to flow into the basement floor of reactor4.
Tepco analyzes it’s because pipes are frozen and damaged, had their employees find the leaking part.

4号機建屋、汚染水漏れ続く=配管など損傷か-福島第1
東京電力は3日、福島第1原発の4号機原子炉建屋の原子炉と使用済み燃料プール、機器用プールに共通して張っている水が建屋内に依然として漏れ続けている とみられると発表した。水位はほぼ満水状態に維持しているが、あふれた水を受けるタンクの水位が通常の2倍のペースで低下しているため、漏出の可能性が高 いと分かった。
この水は放射能汚染水で、もともと汚染水がたまっている建屋地下へ流れているとみられる。配管接続部などの凍結、損傷が考えられ、作業員が場所の特定を急いでいる。(2012/02/03-12:54)
