Tokyo – The operator of the nuclear plant in Fukushima in Japan , destroyed by a tsunami in March 2011, announced Tuesday that he could not freeze radioactive water on site.

Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco), the operator of Fukushima, plans to freeze a portion of the 11,000 tons of toxic water stored in pits under two reactor buildings of the plant. Implementation of this project began in April, but the water can not freeze.

According to a spokesman for Tepco, fluctuating water levels in the tunnel under the building number two reactor prevent it from freezing into ice.

Tepco has another project in Fukushima: underground construction of an ice wall 1.4 km long around buildings four reactors to prevent radioactive water from leaking into the Pacific Ocean.
The ice wall uses the same technology as the project pits and uses the same company, the construction group, Kajima.
