‘ Japan’s Beleagured Fukishima Nuclear Plan Restarts its Trouble-Plagued Water Contamination System ‘

#AceWorldNews – JAPAN (Tokyo) – June 23 – Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant restarted its trouble-plagued water decontamination system for the first time in three months, AFP reported, citing the utility.

Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) has been forced to repeatedly switch off its Advanced Liquid Processing System (ALPS), which attempts to decontaminate radiation-tainted water.

The move followed a series of glitches plaguing the system since trial operations began last year.

Tepco is struggling to handle a growing volume of contaminated water at Fukushima.
