[…] Tepco also noted that the steel structures below the reactor vessel are very complex. Each vessel also has up to 200 penetrations […] An extra difficulty is the need to seal the containment, which was compromised during the accident. Tepco has not yet been able to find the points from which water injected to cool the cores escapes […]
