Tokyo, Jan 25(ANI): The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has said the amount of radioactive materials released from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant has seen a rise this month as compared with December.
TEPCO said on Monday that the amount of radioactive material released this month has already reached around 70 million becquerels per hour as compared with 60 million becquerels in December.
The rise is credited to the dislocation of radioactive materials that had settled on facilities and equipment as a result of work conducted near reactors 2 and 3, The Japan Times reports.
TEPCO had recently looked into the inside of the container vessel for the No. 2 reactor with an industrial endoscope and conducted scrap work around reactor 3.
While the amount of radioactive materials released from reactor 1 reduced to one-fifth the level in December the amount of materials from the other two had increased by 10 million becquerels per hour, TEPCO said. (ANI)
