Ft. Calhoun reactor gets go-ahead

Federal regulators gave the flood-idled Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station the green light Friday to move forward with plans for returning to service.

The earliest the plant could be brought back online would be the end of the month, and that assumes everything goes according to plan, said David Bannister, vice president and chief nuclear officer at Omaha Public Power District, which owns the reactor.

Much of the work that lies ahead involves the investigation and testing of equipment.

"Our intention is that we will be able to restart in the coming months; however, we will not compromise on safety for the public or our workers," Bannister said. "That means we absolutely will not restart the plant until we can ensure that it is safe to do so."

Feds: Nuke plant among two worst

Federal regulators have downgraded the flood-idled nuclear power plant 20 miles north of Omaha, ranking it as one of the two poorest performing reactors in the United States.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, in a letter to the Omaha Public Power District released Tuesday, faulted Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station for the performance of its safety systems — those needed to prevent potential problems from becoming potentially catastrophic.

The U.S. has 104 licensed nuclear reactors, and Fort Calhoun is now in a category with one other plant that in laymen's terms could be considered a letter grade of “D.” No plants have an “F,” which requires a plant be shut down.

FORT CALHOUN

Results of a thermal fatigue analysis on the Chemical and Volume Control System (CVCS) charging line concluded that the socket weld fittings above the RCS piping cannot be qualified.

As an interim action, shut down cooling purification has been secured and charging has been isolated to the RCS.

The plant is shutdown and in Mode 5 with the reactor vessel head removed, so RCS is not intact and not required to be for current plant conditions.

Fort Calhoun Station LER: Inoperable Equipment due to Lack of Environmental Qualifications
During the review of the current analysis of record for Main Steam Line Break (MSLB) inside containment, no analysis or evaluation could be found to address why the original Electrical Environmental Qualification (EEQ) evaluation of peak MSLB conditions remain valid. The current analysis of record establishes that containment temperatures remain above the Loss of Coolant Accident (LOCA) peak temperature for substantially longer (220 seconds versus 60 seconds) but at a lower temperature (347.9 degrees Fahrenheit vs. 401 degrees Fahrenheit). The longer dwell times could result in a more adverse impact on environmentally qualified equipment.

Private firm being hired to run Neb. nuke plant
A Nebraska utility has decided to hire out-of-state experts to run the troubled nuclear power plant near Omaha.

Omaha Public Power District directors voted Thursday to contract with Exelon Generation LLC to run the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station, which has been under close scrutiny by regulators. Exelon Generation is owned by Chicago-based Exelon Corp., and operates 17 reactors at 10 nuclear power plants in Illinois, Pennsylvania and New Jersey

Fort Calhoun was initially shut down for routine refueling maintenance in April 2011, but flooding along the Missouri River and safety violations forced it to remain offline. The violations included a small electrical fire in June 2011, the failure of a key electrical part during a 2010 test and deficiencies in flood planning that were discovered a year before last summer's extensive floods.

Flood Threat To Nuclear Plants Covered Up By Regulators, NRC Whistleblower Claims
[link to www.huffingtonpost.com]

[snip]

n a letter submitted Friday afternoon to internal investigators at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a whistleblower engineer within the agency accused regulators of deliberately covering up information relating to the vulnerability of U.S. nuclear power facilities that sit downstream from large dams and reservoirs.

The letter also accuses the agency of failing to act to correct these vulnerabilities despite being aware of the risks for years.

In the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Huffington Post, Richard H. Perkins, a reliability and risk engineer with the agency's division of risk analysis, alleged that NRC officials falsely invoked security concerns in redacting large portions of a report detailing the agency's preliminary investigation into the potential for flooding at U.S. nuclear power plants due to upstream dam failure.

In addition to the Oconee facility, the report examined similar vulnerabilities at the Ft. Calhoun station in Nebraska, the Prairie Island facility in Minnesota and the Watts Bar plant in Tennessee, among others.

The rust-bucket reactors start to fall
[link to www.freepress.org]
 Quoting: Waterbug


[snip]

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.

Speak Out on Nuclear Waste
[link to www.riverkeeper.org]

[snip]

On June 8, 2012, Riverkeeper and our allies won a landmark U.S. Court of Appeals decision nullifying the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s “Waste Confidence Rule,” which has allowed each U.S. nuclear reactor to store highly radioactive nuclear waste on site. The now-invalidated rule presumed that waste stored at reactors would go to a national nuclear waste dump someday and that the storage of spent fuel at individual reactors is temporary and causes “no significant environmental impact.”

Because of our landmark court victory, there is no longer any legal basis for plants like Indian Point to avoid studying the environmental impacts of long-term nuclear waste storage in fuel pools or dry storage. At Indian Point, spent fuel has leaked carcinogenic nuclear waste into groundwater and the Hudson River, and its unfortified storage structure has been considered as a target of terrorists. The Court’s decision forces the NRC to address the risks of nuclear waste disposal before any U.S. nuclear plant, including Indian Point, may be licensed or re-licensed. This reckoning is long overdue.

Radioactive sludge waits for disposal

Nearly 88,000 tons of sewage sludge and incineration ash contaminated with radioactive substances from last year's nuclear plant accident has still not been removed to a permanent disposal site.

The radioactive fallout from the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster polluted soil and water in regions around the facility.

The government is obliged to find disposal sites for the sludge and ash with cesium levels of more than 8,000 becquerels per kilogram in each prefecture.

Such waste totaled 87,800 tons in 11 prefectures as of November 2nd, far exceeding the government's initial estimate of 50,000 tons.
Fukushima Prefecture has the most at nearly 70,000 tons, which is about 80 percent of the total.

Shizuoka and Yamagata prefectures were recently added to the list of sites that require clean-up, with about 11 tons of waste in total. The 2 prefectures are relatively far from Fukushima.

The Rush to Restart San Onofre
[link to www.nuclearfreecal.org]
 Quoting: Waterbug


[snip]

With the severe damage already having taken place in both reactors, there is a chance that additional steam tubes could rupture during this experimental attempt to restart unit two which could lead to a major disaster. Such an incident could result in billions of dollars in damages in one of the wealthiest areas in the country. The property/housing in the 10 mile Evacuation Zone around San Onofre is worth over $200 billion. This area would become permanently contaminated with hot spots going out far beyond this as can be seen by recent reports out of Japan.

However, the nuclear industry has been legally protected from economic damages with the Price-Anderson Act that limits damages payments to a maximum of $12.6 billion.

As is known by the general public, there is a 99% chance of a major earthquake hitting Southern California in the next 30 years or less.

What is less generally known is that US Geological Survey experts in July of 2011 stated in a state hearing that they did not know whether or not California’s reactors were capable of withstanding the largest possible earthquakes.

This dangerous game of nuclear roulette and the hidden economics is at the core of why San Onofre should never be run again.
