Bulgaria Will Hold Referendum on Nuclear Plant Jan. 27
Bulgaria will hold a referendum on whether to build a new nuclear plant on Jan. 27, President Rosen Plevneliev said in e-mailed statement today.

Prime Minister Boiko Borissov’s Cabinet canceled on March 28 a 10 billion-euro ($12.25 billion) project to build a 2,000- megawatt nuclear power plant at Belene with Rosatom Corp., Russia’s state nuclear company, after failing to agree on its cost and find Western investors.

The move caused criticism from the opposition socialist party, which said the government deprived the country from an electricity source. Rosatom filed a 1 billion-euro claim on Sept. 11 with the International Court of Arbitration in Paris to cover construction work and production costs on the canceled project.

Govt. studies seam beneath Ohi nuclear plant
Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority has conducted a survey at the country's only operating nuclear power plant to determine whether a seam under the facility is an active fault.

A team of experts dug into the ground at the Ohi plant in Fukui Prefecture, central Japan, on Friday.

The 900-meter-long seam runs between areas below the plant's No. 2 and 3 reactors. A key pipeline that transports cooling water from the ocean to the reactors runs across the fissure.

The plant's operator, Kansai Electric, said in an interim report released on Wednesday that the seam cannot be considered an active fault.

Local gov'ts rap state for lacking local views in energy strategy
A group of local governments in areas hosting nuclear power plants nationwide criticized the central government on Friday for not reflecting their views in the country's new energy strategy that aims to phase out nuclear power in the 2030s and called for creation of an arena to discuss the policy direction.

"There was no detailed explanation to or hearings in the areas hosting plants in the process of compiling the energy strategy...We want the government to swiftly create a forum to discuss energy and environment policies," the All Japan Council of Local Governments with Atomic Power Stations said in a petition handed to industry minister Yukio Edano.

BTW, what do you mean with a "Temp-Staff Worker"?... you can't just ask a guy on the street: "hey, wanna work at a nuke plant?"... there has to be a security check and a health check before you're allowed in... if those are ok there's a one day introduction course about how to protect yourself and special considerations while working on a nuke plant...

Man charged with threatening nuclear reactor
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a 48-year-old Gretna man has been charged with threatening to destroy a nuclear reactor.

William Dugas was charged Thursday in a two-count indictment handed down by a federal grand jury.

U.S. Attorney Jim Letten charges that Dugas called the Louisiana Public Service Commission and threatened to blow up a nuclear reactor because he was angry about his utility bill.

While serving a search warrant Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office arrested Dugas and handed him over to federal custody.

He faces 10 years in prison a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release.

Ameren, Westinghouse still waiting for decision on nuclear grant
It was six months ago that Ameren Missouri and Westinghouse officials joined Gov. Jay Nixon on the lawn of the governor’s mansion to announce plans to pursue a first-of-its-kind mini nuclear reactor that would be built next to the utility’s Callaway plant.
The effort had bipartisan political support. Other Missouri electricity suppliers were on board, as well as the state’s university system. Everything seemed in place — almost.

The whole plan hinged on getting at least a share of a $452 million federal grant to advance commercialization of next-generation nuclear technology.

NRC raises concerns about Dresden flood plan
[link to www.equities.com]

[snip]

The plant was built at 517 feet above sea level, or 10 feet above historic flood levels. But updated modeling indicates the worst-case flood could 528 feet above sea level.

There has never been a flood that high. But with changing weather patterns, Mitlyng said, "events have been taking place ... beyond what we expect or what has been known."

The Dresden reactors were licensed in 1966 and are among the oldest in the U.S. They surpassed their original 40-year lifespans and have been granted 20-year license extensions.

Exelon operates all 11 nuclear power reactors in Illinois. Dresden is the only one for which the NRC raised flooding concerns, Mitlyng said.

Niigata drafts nuclear accident guidelines
Officials in Niigata Prefecture have agreed that local authorities outside government-set evacuation areas will also have to draw up their own measures to respond to a possible accident at a local nuclear power plant.

A panel made up of all municipalities in the prefecture agreed on the guideline on Friday. The panel had discussed disaster management plans since the Fukushima nuclear accident.

Municipalities within the 30-kilometer radius from the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear plant in the prefecture will create extensive disaster response plans in line with new government guidelines adopted on Wednesday.

Post-Fukushima preparedness survey shows lack of evacuation sites
More than 30 percent of municipalities that fall within the government's new disaster preparation zone around nuclear power plants say they have yet to secure sufficient evacuation sites in the event of an atomic accident in their locality, a Kyodo News survey showed Saturday.

The survey found that 29 of the 83 municipalities in 20 prefectures, excluding those in Fukushima Prefecture, home to the crippled Fukushima Daiichi complex operated by Tokyo Electric Power Co., which were freshly included in the zone, are not fully prepared for evacuating their residents in such a circumstance.

The study also found that 90 percent of the municipalities have yet to decide how to distribute iodine tablets for protecting the thyroid from radiation exposure, with many citing concerns over possible side effects and problems with storage conditions.

Four out of the six members of a government team drafting new safety standards for nuclear reactors have received between around 3 million yen and 27 million yen each in grants, donations and compensation from utilities in the past three to four years, according to data disclosed by the Nuclear Regulation Authority on Friday.

The regulatory body's secretariat said the members "have been selected in line with rules, and there should be no problem." Critics, however, say the members' judgments might be swayed by the wishes of donors, exposing safety regulations to the risk of being watered down.

TEPCO admits 4th worker exposed to radiation in early days of disaster
[link to ajw.asahi.com]

[snip]

A full one year and eight months after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. has acknowledged that four workers, not three as it had maintained, were exposed to varying levels of radiation soon after the crisis unfolded.

It said the men were working in the basement of the turbine building for the No. 3 reactor at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

TEPCO and its business partner Kandenko Co. had previously said that only three workers waded through highly contaminated water on March 24, 2011.

That story held up until last month. A different worker revealed during a Nov. 1 news conference that he had refused to go to the basement but someone else went there.
