 About the construction of the massive ice wall by TEPCO:


Workers insert pipes that will reach 30 meters into the soil (the wall will be 1,5km long with a pipe every meter, i.e 1,500 pipes). These pipes will surround the reactor buildings and coolant will be inserted, into a giant ice wall which is supposed to stop groundwater from seeping into the buildings.


But the wall will cross a whole network of pipes underneath the reactors and experts fear this will interfere with the freezing process.
