Battle to stabilise earthquake reactors
12 March 2011
UPDATE 8: 1.35 pm GMT


Attention is focused on the Fukushima Daiichi and Daini nuclear power plants as Japan struggles to cope in the aftermath of its worst earthquake in recorded history. An explosion has been seen at the site and seawater is now being injected to the plant.



Three of Fukushima Daiichi's six reactors were in operation when yesterday's quake hit, at which point they shut down automatically and commenced removal of residual heat with the help of emergency diesel generators. These suddenly stopped about an hour later, and this has been put down to tsunami flooding by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).





Fukushima Daiichi
Unit 1
- 439 MWe BWR, 1971
- Automatically shut down
- Water level decreasing
- Pressure release implemented
- Explosion observed with unknown
effect

- Containment believed intact
- Seawater injection has started

Unit 2
- 760 MWe BWR, 1974
- Automatically shut down
- Water level lower but steady
- Preparations for pressure release
Unit 3
- 760 MWe BWR, 1976
- Automatically shut down
- Preparations for pressure release
Unit 4
- 760 MWe BWR, 1978
- Shut for periodic inspection
Unit 5
- 760 MWe BWR, 1978

- Shut for periodic inspection

Unit 6
- 1067 MWe BWR, 1979
- Shut for periodic inspection


Fukushima Daini
Unit 1
- 1067 MWe BWR, 1982
- Automatically shut down
- Offsite power available
- Water level stable
- Preparations for pressure release
Unit 2
- 1067 MWe BWR, 1984
- Automatically shut down
- Offsite power available
- Water level stable
- Preparations for pressure release
Unit 3
- 1067 MWe BWR, 1985
- Automatically shut down
- Offsite power available
- Water level stable
- Preparations for pressure release
Unit 4
- 1067 MWe BWR, 1987
- Automatically shut down
- Offsite power available
- Water level stable
- Preparations for pressure release
The loss of the diesels led the plant owners Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) to immediately notify the government of a technical emergency situation, which allows officials to take additional precautionary measures.



For many hours the primary focus of work at the site was to connect enough portable power modules to fully replace the diesels and enable the full operation of cooling systems.



Pressure and releases



Without enough power for cooling systems, decay heat from the reactor cores of units 1, 2 and 3 has gradually reduced coolant water levels through evaporation. The consequent increase in pressure in the coolant circuit can be managed via pressure release valves. However, this leads to an increase in pressure within the reactor building containment. Tepco has said that the pressure within the containment of Fukushima Daiichi 1 has reached around 840 kPa, compared to reference levels of 400 kPa.



The company has decided to manage this "for those units that cannot confirm certain levels of water injection" by means of a controlled release of air and water vapour to the atmosphere. Because this water has been through the reactor core, this would inevitably mean a certain release of radiation. The IAEA said this would be filtered to retain radiation within the containment. Tepco has confirmed it was in the process of relieving pressure at unit 1 while preparing to do the same for units 2 and 3



Explosion



Television cameras trained on the plant captured a dramatic explosion surrounding unit 1 at around 6pm. Amid a visible pressure release and a cloud of dust it was not possible to know the extent of the damage. The external building structure does not act as the containment, which is an airtight engineered boundary within. According to reported comments attributed to chief cabinet secretary Yukio Edano, the containment has not been comprimised.



Monitoring of Fukushima Daiichi 1 had previously shown an increase in radiation levels detected emerging from the plant via routes such as the exhaust stack and the discharge canal. Tepco have said that the amount of radioactive material such as iodine it is detecting have been increasing. The amount of radiation at the site boundary now exceeds a regulatory limit triggering another set of emergency precautions.



To protect the public from potential health effects of radioactive isotopes of iodine that could potentially be released, authorities are preparing to distribute tablets of non-radioactive potassium-iodide. This is quickly taken up by the body and its presence prevents the take-up of iodine should people be exposed to it.



The injection of seawater into the building followed 8.20pm and this will be followed by addition of boric acid, which is used to inhibit nuclear reactions.



Over the last several hours evacuation orders for local residents have been incrementally increased and now cover people living within 20 kilometres of the power plant.



Raised temperatures



Meanwhile at adjacent Fukushima Daini, where four reactors have been shut down safely since the earthquake hit, Tepco has notified government of another emergency status.



Unit 1's reactor core isolation cooling system had been operating normally, and this was later supplemented by a separate make-up water condensate system. However, the latter was lost at 5.32am local time when its suppression chamber reached 100ºC. This led Tepco to notify government of another technical emergency situation.



Tepco has announced it has decided to prepare for controlled releases to ease pressure in the containments of all four units at Fukushima Daini.



A three kilometre evacuation is in progress, with residents in a zone out to ten kilometres given notice of potential expansion.



Workers



A seriously injured worker was trapped within Fukushima Daiichi unit 1 in the crane operating console of the exhaust stack and is now confirmed to have died. At Fukushima Daiini unit 3 one worker received a radiation dose of 106 mSv. This is comparable to levels deemed acceptable in emergency situations by the UK Health and Safety Executive, for example.

So if the reactor didn't blow up, what did, fresh air in the building?

Do they really think we're stupid?

Why are they telling people to stay inside, handing out Iodine tablets if there is no risk?

The reactor is enclosed and surrounded by offices and a generator.

Did somebody throw a cigarette into a bin in the office, I think not!

Something got too hot and blew up, guess what it was?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1293162


People also believe that there wasn’t a explosion on 9/11, even some ton heavy steel structures were blown into neighbouring buildings.

Obviously too many people don’t understand that things don’t fly around without any reason. They believe everything the media claims.

I grabbed a quick, necessary three hours of sleep. After seeing the massive, powerful explosion before I got some shuteye, I expected the worst when I awoke.

Instead, I turn on the tv and no one is talking about it. CNN is in full-blown ignoramus mode. FOX is at least showing the explosion video but not very anything except the iodine. They seem to me to look concerned but their words (as usual) don't match their expressions. Puppets, but maybe somewhere deep down inside these automatons have a conscience? Nah, I doubt it.

I don't know why I ever expected to wake up to truth. In America? REMEMBER THE LIES OF 9/11 AS YOU WATCH THIS PSYCHOLOGICAL OPERATION WE CALL "THE NEWS" THIS MORNING.

I'm scared as hell, mainly because I now know they aren't EVER going to tell us that we'll probably be breathing in radiation within a week. So we won't even know when to stay indoors to try and avoid it.

They never told the 9/11 cleanup workers what they were breathing either.

What a country. What a world.

I pray that when the next "generation" of intelligence rises on this planet after we're all gone, they value TRUTH a lot more than our misleaders and misinforming media does. This is utterly pathetic

* 2,800 residents already evacuated within two-mile radius of the plant
* Pressure rises to 2.1 times normal level
* Experts warn the situation 'could turn grave'

There has been an explosion at the Fukushima nuclear plant.

Several workers have been injured by the blast as they continue the struggle to contain radiation leaks at the crippled reactor.

Thousands of people within a six-mile radius of the Fukushima facility were evacuated as radiation rose to 1,000 times the safe level and pressure grew, fueling fears of an explosion.

With growing tension at the plant 150 miles north of Tokyo, a second state of emergency was declared as pressure rose in two reactors at the facility.

Earlier officials had proposed releasing radioactive vapour into the atmosphere in a bid to prevent an explosion after its cooling system failed.

1. If the Containment dome was intact, they WOULD NOT be detecting Cesium and Iodine around the facility. THAT should be CONTAINED.

2. There was a question about the black smoke from the explosion. Black smoke is usually petroleum products. I would guess it is the insulation on the many, and huge wire cables in the facility. The white "smoke" is steam and pulverized concrete.
