There are only three like it in the world and the United States government happen to have one. The world’s largest concret pump was removed from a government installation and is now headed for the doomed Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan.
The pump weighs in a whopping 190,000 pounds and is made in Germany by Putzmeister. The beast of a machine has a 70-meter boom that is remote controlled which should make it ideal for the highly radioactive terrain.
The donation of the pump is a strong indicator that it’s game over for trying to cool the failed reactors and the only option left is to entomb the mess in concrete in the same way the Chernobyl disaster ended.
