TOKYO, September 3. (Itar-Tass). – Japan’s government has approved on Tuesday a strategy and a set of measures in order to solve the issue of collecting and leakages of radioactive water at wrecked Fukushima-1 NPP. The corresponding decision was taken at a session of nuclear threat combating office.
According to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that took part in the session, “the government is solving this problem, working on the frontline and not leaving it upon” the NPP operating company Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO). “ We will take all required financial measures,” Abe stressed. In 2013 financial year, the government will allocate over 40 billion yen (over $400 million at current exchange rate) to create an artificial deep-frozen soil under the troubled NPP. Experts say it may solve the problem of polluted liquid accumulation in the plant’s area and stop its leakage.
The new set of measures also includes efforts in monitoring the radiation level in the NPP’s area, efforts in the field of informational aspects of the issue and setting up additional ground-based reservoirs for polluted water. The government intends to raise its participation in the processes connected with Fukushima-1 NPP at all levels by setting up special ministerial groups, as well as by revising the structure of TEPCO.
