EC approves EDF’s nuclear project in UK
European Commission (EC) has cleared and approved a proposal by EDF Energy to construct and operate a new nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point in Somerset, England.

Under Article 41 of the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) Treaty, the Commission concluded that the proposed Hinkley Point C nuclear power station meets the objectives of the Treaty and can contribute towards developing a sustainable national energy mix.

EDF Energy Nuclear New Build managing director Humphrey Cadoux-Hudson said the EC has given its approval to the Hinkley Point C project.

Hitachi, GE in talks to combine nuclear power JVs - Nikkei
Hitachi Ltd and General Electric Co are considering combining their two nuclear power joint ventures under a single entity which may end up under Hitachi's control, the Nikkei business daily said.

The move comes after a dip in demand for new nuclear plants in the context of a sharp rise in shale gas production in North America and the meltdown of Japan's Fukushima reactor last year, the paper said.

GE is one of the world's top power generation engineering companies and, together with Japan's largest industrial electronics maker Hitachi, is active in designing and building nuclear reactors.

SPEEDI report deepens suspicions
[link to www.japantimes.co.jp]

[snip]

SPEEDI, a computer simulation system used to determine or predict dispersions of radioactive substances, is supposed to be utilized during a nuclear disaster to help people evacuate to safe areas.

But in the early stage of the crisis at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, the government did not make public the predictions made by SPEEDI. In the absence of relevant information, some people fled to places where radiation levels were actually higher.

On July 27, the education and science ministry, which is in charge of SPEEDI, issued a report based on a probe of its handling of SPEEDI data. The report attempted to justify the ministry's decision to withhold SPEEDI-based predictions of the dispersion of radioactive fallout from Fukushima No. 1.
If someone feels that a cover-up is going on in the ministry, he or she cannot be blamed.

SPEEDI — short for System for Prediction of Environmental Emergency Dose Information — is the same system that the Nuclear Safety Commission uses to make risk calculations.

If hypothetical amounts of radioactive substances released from the reactors had been fed into SPEEDI in the absence of real data, SPEEDI could have predicted the directions in which radioactive materials would disperse.

Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
A permanent solution for spent nuclear fuel is needed now

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has stopped issuing permits and license extensions for nuclear power plants while it reviews its policies for storing nuclear waste. The move comes after a federal court said the agency hasn’t done enough to explain the environmental consequences if the procedures in place fail.

The Seabrook Station in New Hampshire is one of the 14 reactors awaiting license renewal.

The move, however, doesn’t affect Vermont Yankee — the Vernon, Vt. nuclear reactor owned by Mississippi-based Entergy Corp. — which was granted a 30-year license extension by the federal regulatory agency last year. But what becomes of spent fuel is a topic that pertains to all nuclear facilities worldwide, including those long-since closed, as was highlighted in 2011 with the earthquake-triggered meltdown of a Japanese facility.

The high-level radioactive waste, which at the Vermont plant is stored in stacked casks on the western shore of the Connecticut River, has to be kept contained from the environment for tens of thousands of years. Yet, there’s no permanent storage plan in place.

Tepco Weighed Using Firearms to Avoid Fukushima Explosion
As the first hydrogen explosion rocked the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (9501) officials scrambled to prevent a second blast, at one point weighing the use of firearms to shoot a hole in the reactor building to release the pressure.

“It was probably the last resort,” Hironobu Unesaki, a nuclear engineering professor at Kyoto University, said by phone yesterday.

Hi all! Back from the beach so here is my report, at least for Gold Beach and Brookings. We were about 50 miles south of Bandon (that is where Idgits went and saw the dead birds). We only saw 1 dead bird, but did notice there were not many flying about down by the ocean. The beaches were clean and very few people on them, but that is normal at the Oregon Coast. A lot of closed up businesses but that is more due to economic times than anything else. The harbor at Brookings looks good and they spent 5.1 million on repairs and dredging out the silt that was deposited during the tsunami. Part of the money was from FEMA and part came from the state. The locals generally don't worry too much about the Tsunami Debris being contaminated but they are worried about where the money will come from for clean up. Geiger readings pretty steady in the low to mid teens, .12 - .17 uSv/hr.

Panel to analyze public opinion on energy policy
The Japanese government is planning to ask experts to analyze a large volume of public opinion it has received on the nation's future dependence on nuclear power.

The government has held public hearings and solicited opinions nationwide, as it reviews its energy policy in the wake of last year's nuclear disaster. It has received more than 80,000 responses since early July.

Members of the public were presented with 3 options for the country's dependence on nuclear power --zero percent, around 15 percent, or between 20 and 25 percent -- as of 2030.

Retreat was never an option: ex-Fukushima plant chief
TOKYO — The chief of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant at the time of the quake-tsunami disaster has said he never considered withdrawing from the escalating crisis despite fearing for his life, according to reports.

“I thought my fellow workers and I could die when huge amounts of debris flew off” the plant after an explosion, Masao Yoshida said in rare public comments in a video message released over the weekend, according to local media.

The 57-year-old, whose message was played to an event in Fukushima Prefecture that discussed recovery from the disaster, described the scene as “hell.”

But he added: “I did not suggest to headquarters that (we should) retreat and never thought about it.”

The submarine, flying the French flag, was towed by tugs into the Faslane naval base on Gareloch on August 2. It was spotted and photographed from the shore by anti-nuclear campaigners at the Faslane Peace Camp.

The campaigners identified the boat as one of the four French Triomphant-class that usually carry nuclear weapons. They say this is the first time a nuclear-armed French submarine has been seen visiting the Clyde.

[Reactor4] Exposure dose to remove the lid of PCV4 was 7.8 timers higher than new fuel from SFP4

Tepco removed the lid of PCV4 on 8/10/2012. It’s supposed to be a part of the entire removal process of spent fuel assemblies in SFP4, but Tepco did not announce more specific reason to remove it.

They are to remove the lid of RPV4 by early October.

The exposure dose of the workers was remarkable. 36 workers were involved and the highest reading of the exposure dose was 0.39 mSv for 15 minutes work. It’s 1.56 mSv/h.

Tepco estimated the exposure dose would be 0.8 mSv/d, which is only 0.03 mSv/h.

The actual exposure dose was 52 times higher than estimated.

by the way, according to Tepco’s announcement, there was no fuel in PCV4 supposedly.

Calvert Cliffs nuke plant shuts down one unit after control rod malfunctions
[link to www.washingtonpost.com]

[snip]

The operators of the Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant shut down one of the plant’s two nuclear reactors on Sunday after a control rod accidentally dropped entirely into the core where fission occurs, a spokesman for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Monday.

When an unplanned drop occurs, however, the fission process can become imbalanced and “pose challenges” for the plant operator, Sheehan said. Such a malfunction also requires operators to shut the reactor down within six hours, he said.
