Russia to construct Fukushima water decontamination plant in 2016 — Sputnik News

” Russian experts will begin in early 2016 construction of a demo water treatment plant to decontaminate dangerous radioactive isotopes in Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant, Atomproekt, the company in charge of the project said Wednesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Atomproekt, part of Russia’s nuclear product and service provider Rosatom Corporation, has forwarded working construction documents on a demo tritium treatment plant to Rosatom and subsidiary RosRAO, the company said in a statement.

According to Atomproekt’s statement, the prepared documentation concerns land resettlement, architectural solutions, process piping, ventilation and electrical systems.

Radiation leaks were caused by a March 2011 partial meltdown of three of Fukushima’s six nuclear reactors, triggered by a destructive tsunami resulting from a powerful earthquake. Since that time tritium-contaminated water has been contained in above-ground tanks. ”
