Exhibition on latest photovoltaic power generation

An exhibition of the latest in photovoltaic power generation is underway in Chiba, near Tokyo.

About 200 companies and organizations are taking part in the event.

Japanese electronic component maker Kyocera is introducing a so-called mega solar plant. Such facilities can generate at least 1,000 kilowatts of electricity. The company is building a mega solar plant in Kagoshima City, southwestern Japan. It's also showing solar panels that it says have the world's best power generation efficiency.

NRA may assess Tsuruga plant fissures

The chairman of Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority says it may determine whether a nuclear plant in Fukui Prefecture is vulnerable to earthquakes even if experts fail to make a scientific judgment on the matter.

Shun-ichi Tanaka made the remark at a news conference on Wednesday before a meeting in Tokyo next week to evaluate results of a survey of fissures beneath the Tsuruga plant on the Sea of Japan coast.

Govt. to integrate nuclear waste storage sites

Talks between the government and municipalities to find storage sites for soil contaminated with nuclear radiation are tense.

On Wednesday, Environment Ministry officials met with the mayor of Okuma town, Toshitsuna Watanabe, after the municipality agreed last month to accept the government's survey to find candidate storage sites.

Nine of 12 government-planned sites are in Okuma Town, which hosts the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant.

EDF Falls on Rising Costs for Normandy Nuclear Reactor

Electricite de France SA declined in Paris as the biggest nuclear operator raised the estimated cost of developing its EPR reactor in Normandy to 8.5 billion euros ($11 billion), more than double the initial estimate.
The utility, which retained its 2016 target for starting up the reactor, said the plant’s costs grew because of changes to its engineering and design, and lessons learned from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster. The figure includes 2 billion euros of higher costs on a constant currency basis, plus an additional increase to take inflation into account, an EDF official said yesterday.

South Korea uncovers new fake documents at nuclear plants

SEOUL - South Korean officials said on Wednesday they had uncovered new instances of fake certificates being supplied for parts operating in nuclear power plants, but a source indicated that the revelations would cause no further reactor shutdowns.

Authorities shut two of the country's 23 reactors last month after a nuclear safety commission found fake certificates supplied by eight firms. With nuclear power providing a third of electricity, that raised the prospect of winter shortages.

According to The Huffington Post, Criscinoe first raised his concerns in a lengthy letter to the head of the NRC, which he later sent to several members of Congress. Perkins, who led the study that produced the report, wrote a letter to the NRC’s office of the inspector general, in which he alleged “that

the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has intentionally mischaracterized relevant and noteworthy safety information as sensitive, security information in an effort to conceal the information from the public.”

Japan was top of the list of desired countries to visit for 63 percent of respondents from Taiwan, 52 percent from Malaysia and 48 percent from Thailand.

US report: Shale gas exports benefit US economy

A report sponsored by the US government says shipping surplus shale gas overseas will benefit the country's economy. This could pave the way for getting government permission to export the commodity.

The export plans include business with Japan's electric and gas utilities.

Japanese energy firms have had to increase their use of thermal power plants since the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi plant last year. The firms are keen to buy cheaper US gas.

French Reactor Cost Rises Dramatically, Wind Energy Now Cheaper than New Nuclear

Liberation reports that for the second time in a little more than a year the cost of a new reactor under construction at Flamanville, France has risen dramatically.

Originally scheduled to be completed this year for a cost of €3.3 billion, the cost of the European Pressurized Reactor (EPR) doubled in 2011 to €6 billion and completion was delayed until 2016.

Constructors Areva and Electricité de France (EDF) have announced the cost has again risen, now to €8.5 billion ($10.6 billion) for the 1,650-MW reactor.

Similar cost overruns and completion delays have plagued Areva's EPR reactor under construction in Finland. Originally planned for operation in 2009, the Finnish reactor's start date has been extended to 2015, six years behind schedule.

With capital costs now more than €5,000 per kW ($6,400 per kW), EDF's announcement doesn't bode well for reactor proposals in Ontario, Canada, the US, and in Great Britain.

Team creates fabric that can absorb 99% of radioactive cesium

apanese researchers said they have developed a fabric that can efficiently absorb radioactive cesium, a potential weapon in the battle to clean up areas contaminated by the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

The fabric, which can absorb more than 99 percent of cesium under certain conditions, can be mass-produced at a cost of about 1,000 yen ($12) per square meter, or about one-fifth of existing products, according to the researchers at the University of Tokyo's Institute of Industrial Science and Ozu Corp., a Tokyo-based nonwoven fabric manufacturer.

The bilateral protocol on the construction of Tainwan’s third and fourth reactors was signed in the presence of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and his Chinese counterpart Wen Jiabao.

Construction work will begin in December this year, Rosatom civilian nuclear power corporation head Sergei Kiriyenko said.

Each reactor unit has two steam generators. Both units have been shut down since the worn tubing was discovered in January earlier this year. The wearing was particularly bad in Unit 3, which resulted in a minor radioactive gas leak.

Both units have been shut down since the problem was uncovered. Unit 1, the only other reactor ever at the plant, was permanently shut down and dismantled in 1992.

Nearly a year after the shutdown, Edison has attempted to make a case that Unit 2 is now safe to operate once again.
