'Fukushima No. 2 reactor's 'faulty' thermometer shows new high temperature of 93.7 C'

Tokyo, Mon, 13 Feb 2012 ANI

Tokyo, Feb 13(ANI): Thermometer readings at the bottom of the No. 2 reactor at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant rose further to exceed 90 C for the first time since it attained a cold shutdown in December.

 

The readings had reached a new high of 93.7 C., Kyodo quoted a Tokyo Electric Power Co. statement, as saying.

 

TEPCO added that it was likely that the thermometer was malfunctioning because the temperature had fluctuated between 75 C and 90 C within a short time, while readings from two other thermometers also at the bottom of the reactor vessel have remained around 35 C.

 

"The device's movements are perplexing. At this stage, however, it is not necessary to change the judgment that (the reactor is) in a state of cold shutdown." Japan's Nuclear Disaster Minister Goshi Hosono said. (ANI)
