» TEPCO beun trial runs of newly installed ALPS system

TEPCO said it has begun trial runs of a decontamination channel of a newly installed ALPS system to process radioactive water at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

Three channels of the Advanced Liquid Processing System equipment have been in operation since March 2013, but have frequently been suspended because of accidents.

TEPCO said it will start trial runs of two additional channels of the new ALPS equipment by early October. When all six channels become operative, the ALPS system can decontaminate up to 1,500 tons of contaminated water per day, twice as much as the current capacity.
