Tokyo Electric Power

rejected the report warning of the nuclear plant could be at risk of tsunami 10 meters high, the state media

The operator of the power station in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear ignore warnings that the complex was at risk of damage caused by a tsunami of the magnitude that struck the northeast Japan in March and rejected the need for better protection against flooding of sea water, according to reports.

Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) officials rejected "unrealistic" the estimates made in an internal report in 2008 that the plant could be threatened by a tsunami of up to 10.2 meters, news agency Kyodo.

The tsunami emergency power plant in the afternoon of March 11, leading to the merger of three reactors, was over 14 meters high.

evidence that the utility was not prepared for the tsunami, despite previous warnings, is that the company announced that the plant manager of Fukushima, Masao Yoshida, was being treated for disease not specified, and leave his post on Thursday.

The company declined to disclose the nature of the disease Yoshida, but said it was not related to their exposure to radiation during the nine months since the start of the crisis. "The doctor's advice, I have no choice but to be hospitalized for treatment," Yoshida, 56, said in a message to staff. "It breaks my heart to say goodbye in this way all the people I have worked since the disaster. "

Yoshida, who led the department to oversee the management of the factory when the report was presented in 2008, was credited with preventing a serious accident in March.

the aftermath of the tsunami, adopted the continuous injection of sea water in a damaged reactor, but they said they have abandoned the measure TEPCO officials. He was later reprimanded, but won praise from experts who said he had helped to cool the fuel rods to overheat and to avoid a worse disaster.

Kyodo, quoting sources saying that the plant Tepco could have been better prepared for the disaster had taken seriously the report.

Greenpeace, meanwhile, urged Japan not to restart nuclear reactors to stress tests and maintenance checks to improve their response plans to disasters. He said that the simulation of accidents card may be used for emergency measures do not reflect the severity of accidents Fukushima disaster.
Greenpeace said that representatives of the Japanese government admitted that Speedi simulations are inadequate because they are limited to low level radiation emissions within six miles. Contaminated by the accident of Fukushima is spread over a much wider area.
