Aging and Expensive, Reactors Face Mothballs
THE conventional wisdom about nuclear reactors is that they are expensive to build but cheap to run.

But electricity on the wholesale market is so inexpensive, its price depressed by cheap natural gas, that some reactors may not have enough revenue to justify needed capital expenditures. Experts say that as a result, the nuclear industry may be nearing its first round of retirements since the mid-1990s.

SUMMER: DEGRADED CONDITION DUE TO REACTOR HEAD VESSEL PENETRATION INDICATIONS
On October 23, 2012, V. C. Summer Station Unit 1 (VCSNS) identified two reactor vessel head penetrations (19 and 52) that did not meet the requirements of 10CFR50.55a(g)(6)(ii)(D) and ASME Code Case N-729-1. The station is in a refueling outage (RF20) and the plant is currently shutdown and in Mode 6. The reactor vessel head (RVH) contains a total of 66 penetrations and inspection efforts are approximately 50% percent complete.

NORTH ANNA: AUTOMATIC REACTOR TRIP ON LOW STEAM GENERATOR WATER LEVEL AND DISCOVERY OF AFTER-THE-FACT UNUSUAL EVENT CONDITION

On 10/24/12 at 0147, North Anna Unit 2 reactor tripped automatically. The reactor first out is the 'C' steam generator lo-lo level. The turbine first out is reactor tripped, turbine trip. The event was apparently initiated by a loss of load on the secondary side. The cause of the loss of load is still being investigated. All systems responded as expected.

On 10/24/2012, Tepco attempted measuring the state of the reactor building of unit1.

Because they can’t send human workers, they flew a balloon to the operating room of the fifth floor.

Fukushima situation stable but still precarious, regulator says
VIENNA — The situation at Japan’s stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has been stabilized but is still precarious, more than a year and a half after disaster struck, a senior Japanese regulatory official said on Wednesday.

In the world’s worst nuclear accident in a quarter of a century, reactor meltdowns at the Fukushima facility after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami sent radiation spewing over large areas, forcing more than 160,0000 people to flee.

“Overall, the conditions there have been maintained rather in a stable condition ... but there is no denying that the whole situation remains precarious of course,” said Kenzo Oshima, a commissioner at Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA).

Hokuriku to postpone report on fault underneath nuclear reactor
Hokuriku Electric Power Co. said Thursday it will postpone its final report on an alleged active fault underneath a nuclear reactor for up to six months from the earlier planned date of Jan. 31.

The postponement will make it impossible for the utility to confirm the reactor's safety and resume its operation within fiscal 2012 ending March.

Drill held in Yokosuka under scenario of accident at U.S. base
A disaster drill was held in Yokosuka near Tokyo on Thursday assuming that there was an accident on a U.S. nuclear-powered ship at a military base.

The drill conducted by Yokosuka guided residents near the U.S. naval base in the city, the homeport of the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier George Washington, to evacuate to safe places and confirmed ways to test radiation exposure.

With 2,300 Workers Currently On Site, New Vogtle Reactors Reach 10 Million Work Hours
Approximately 2,300 people are now on site at Vogtle units 3 and 4 near Waynesboro. At peak construction, the project is expected to create 5,000 onsite jobs, making it the largest job-producing project in Georgia. There will be 800 permanent jobs when the facility is operational.

"We are all very proud of this accomplishment, which is an example of our uncompromising focus on safety and quality," said Joseph "Buzz" Miller, executive vice president of nuclear development for Georgia Power and Southern Nuclear. "Significant progress is being made, safely, every day on this project, which is vital to meeting the state's future energy needs."

Though Kewaunee may become the first US reactor to shut in more than a decade, it won't be the last:

Two reactors at San Onofre, between Los Angeles and San Diego, are down with massive steam generator problems. The potential cost of restarting them could easily run into the hundreds of millions. A new leak of hydrogen gas has just complicated the situation as public hearings have drawn large, angry crowds demanding the reactors not reopen.
Repairs to Florida's Crystal River have been so thoroughly botched by Progress Energy that holes in the containment may cost $2 billion or more to fix. Odds are strong this reactor will never operate again.
Official reports now confirm that Nebraska's Cooper and Ft. Calhoun reactors are at considerable risk from flooding. One or both may soon face decommissioning.
A fierce public confrontation over Entergy's leaky, accident-prone Vermont Yankee may soon bring it down. Vermont's governor and legislature have voted to deny permits necessary under state law, but Entergy has gone to the courts to prolong its operation.
A parallel confrontation at Entergy's Indian Point may turn on whether the state's denial of water permits could force shut a reactor just 35 miles north of Manhattan. That the first plane to hit the World Trade Center flew directly over Indian Point has been a source of serious public tension since 9/11/2001.
New Jersey's Oyster Creek is slated to shut by 2019 as a compromise forced by the state's demand that it add cooling towers to avoid further thermal damage to local marine eco-systems. But this dangerously decrepit reactor could go down early due to technical, economic and political pressures.
Ohio's infamous "hole-in-the-head" reactor at Davis-Besse continues to operate with a compromised containment and a long list of unresolved technical problems. Like Kewaunee, its economic future has been darkened by cheap natural gas.

Japan nuke plant water worries rise
[link to www.google.com]

[snip]

Japan's crippled nuclear power plant is struggling to find space to store tens of thousands of tons of highly contaminated water used to cool the broken reactors, the manager of the water treatment team said.

About 200,000 tons of radioactive water — enough to fill more than 50 Olympic-sized swimming pools — are being stored in hundreds of gigantic tanks built around the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant. Operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. has already chopped down trees to make room for more tanks and predicts the volume of water will more than triple within three years.

Outside experts worry that if contaminated water is released, there will be lasting impact on the environment. And they fear that because of the reactor leaks and water flowing from one part of the plant to another, that may already be happening.

Nuclear engineer and college lecturer Masashi Goto said the contaminated water buildup poses a long-term health and environmental threat. He worries that the radioactive water in the basements may already be getting into the underground water system, where it could reach far beyond the plant, possibly the ocean or public water supplies.

"You never know where it's leaking out and once it's out you can never put it back in place," he said. "It's just outrageous and shows how big a disaster the accident is."

No damage from leak at Flamanville nuclear reactor
PARIS Oct 25 - A contained radioactive water leak detected at EDF's Flamanville nuclear plant did not cause any damage to the environment or harm any employees, France's nuclear safety watchdog ASN and EDF said on Thursday.

The nuclear safety agency said on its website EDF had detected a leak in a water pipe that feeds the plant's reactor 1 primary circuit late on Wednesday. It was stopped and did not cause any radioactive contamination.

The incident was defined as a grade 1 incident on the international nuclear event scale (INES), where the maximum 7 is the most severe.
