[quote:Anonymous Coward 1293190:MV8xMzkwMzAxXzIyOTIzMjc4X0VCOTlGMDcz] Please read articles carefully: http://www.japantoday.com/category/technology/view/mox-fuel-loaded-into-tokyo-electrics-old-fukushima-reactor "The No. 3 reactor at the Fukushima No. 1 plant would be the third in Japan to be used for the so-called pluthermal generation, but the only one among the three to have been subjected to antiaging treatment with 34 years since its launch. Pluthermal output has already begun at the No. 3 reactor of Kyushu Electric Power Co’s Genkai plant in Saga Prefecture and the No. 3 reactor of Shikoku Electric Power Co’s Ikata plant in Ehime Prefecture." In other words, only three reactors in all of japan were using MOX fuel as of Aug 22, 2010, the date of that article. The only reactor at Fukushima Daiichi with MOX is #3 which so far has not been reported to have problems. #1 is the problem child, and #2 is reported to be headed down a similar path, potentially. I'm panicking just as much as anyone, but let's try to use our collective, cool heads. [/quote]
SECRET SHIPMENT OF NUCLEAR BOMB MATERIAL FROM
EUROPE TO JAPAN
OVER the next few weeks, two ships carrying a secret cargo of dangerous, nuclear weapons-usable plutonium fuel will leave ports in Britain and France and sail around the globe to Japan. On board will be fuel containing more plutonium than in the entire Indian and Pakistani nuclear weapons programmes.(1)
The two British flagged vessels, the Pacific Teal and the Pacific Pintail, will leave Barrow in Britain and Cherbourg in France carrying the first commercial shipment to Japan of mixed-oxide (MOX) reactor fuel, made from plutonium and uranium. An estimated 446 kilograms of plutonium is contained in the 40 nuclear fuel elements – enough fissile material to construct 60 nuclear bombs. T
The first plant to use MOX is scheduled to be Fukushima 1, plant. The date has been set to August 22nd, 2010.
ROUTE OF PLUTONIUM FUEL (MOX) SHIPMENT KEPT SECRET
THE plutonium (MOX) fuel shipment is being conducted for the Japanese electrical utilities Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) (Fukushima 1.2) .
