Ice wall at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant may have partially melted: NHK

An ice wall meant to halt the circulation of groundwater at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Power plant operated by Tokyo Electric (TEPCO) might have partially melted, broadcaster NHK reported on Friday.

TEPCO plans to strengthen the wall as early as at the beginning of December and is contemplating additional countermeasures, NHK stated.

The ice wall was constructed to forestall the contamination of groundwater on the wrecked nuclear energy plant, a part of a expensive and troubled effort to safe the location following the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

TEPCO didn’t instantly affirm particulars of the report.
