The International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA’s) first independent sampling and analysis of seawater near the Fukushima Daiichi NPP (FDNPP) since discharges of treated water started on 24 August confirms that the tritium levels are below Japan’s operational limit.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is providing live data from Japan on the release of treated water from the Fukushima Daiichi NPP on the IAEA website. The data includes water flow rates, radiation monitoring data and the concentration of tritium after dilution. Fukushima NPP operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), has now begun the controlled discharge of the water into the sea. At the same time, Tepco began transmitting data from various points in the process to the IAEA.

Despite being endorsed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) and the South Korean Government, protests are continuing against Tokyo Electric Power Company’s (Tepco’s) plans to release treated contaminated water from the Fukushima Daiichi NPP to the sea.

Japan’s Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the operator of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (NPS), has demonstrated its capabilities for accurate and precise measurements of the radionuclides present in the treated water stored on site, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA’s) latest report covering its independent sampling and analysis work. This is part of its ongoing review to assess the safety related aspects of Japan’s plan to release the treated water from the Fukushima Daiichi NPS into the sea. In line with relevant IAEA international safety standards, Tepco is required to monitor the characteristics and activity of the treated water in order to accurately evaluate public exposure that will result from the discharge and to comply with its national regulatory authorisation.

Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (Tepco) now estimates that tanks containing treated water at the Fukushima Daiichi NPP are likely to reach capacity around the autumn of 2023, somewhat later than the initial prediction of spring 2023, after the accumulation of radioactive water slowed down in fiscal 2021, Kyodo reported. This provides more time to deal with any obstacles to plans for the discharge of the treated water into the sea from next spring.
