Tepco company admitted security fault in Fukushima, Japan — Prensa Latina

” Tokyo, Dec 13 (Prensa Latina) Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) admitted errors in the security system of Fukushima Nuclear Plant, destroyed by an earthquake and later a Tsunami in March 2011, reported NHK channel.

In the continuation of public reports in this regard, requested by the government, spokesmen of the company noted that the errors in the cooling system and water injection prompted the meltdown of the number 3 reactor, one of the four of this facility.

In the same way the leading board of the entity, intervened shortly after by authorities because of the financial bankruptcy, recognized that such facts were sufficiently proved and generated a strong pollution in the area and in an extension above 20 kilometres away.

Facing this situation more than 80,000 settlers were evacuated from Fukushima, which still remain in evacuation centers with very few possibilities of returning back home.

Tepco was publicly questioned for hiding information since 1992 on the security systems operating in the nuclear plant that later generated the largest crisis in Japan and encouraged a wide mass movement for the use of atomic energy to generate electricity.

That crisis brought about pollution in large maritime and land areas in nearby regions and losses above 100 billion dollars. ”
