TEPCO to install filtered vent at nuclear reactor

Tokyo Electric Power says it will install a filter-equipped emergency vent system to reduce levels of radioactivity released in the air in case of a meltdown at a nuclear power plant.

The company said on Thursday that it will start work to install the system at the Number 7 reactor of its Kashiwazaki plant in Niigata next week.

The system comprises a water tank 4 meters long and 8 meters high, to be installed next to the reactor.

In an emergency, contaminated steam released from a reactor vessel to lower pressure inside the structure would be filtered through water before it enters the atmosphere.

The process can reduce levels of radioactive iodine and cesium by a factor of up to 1,000.

Statewide quake in California may be possible after all
[link to www.latimes.com]

[snip]

Using a combination of laboratory measurements and computer simulations, the two scientists showed how so-called creeping segments in a fault — long thought to be benign because they slip slowly and steadily along as tectonic plates shift — might behave like locked segments, which build up stress over time and then rupture.

Such a snap caused the 9.0-magnitude Tohoku-Oki earthquake that hit Japan in 2011, triggering a tsunami, killing nearly 16,000 people and destroying the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Forecasters had not believed such a large quake was possible there.

A supposedly stable section of fault also ruptured during the 1999 Chi-Chi quake in Taiwan, a 7.6-magnitude temblor that killed more than 2,400 people.

U.S. Nuclear Regulators Divided on Costly Fukushima Rule

The filter requirement would be the most expensive imposed by U.S. nuclear regulators since Fukushima, at a cost of $16 million or more per reactor, according to the NRC staff's estimate. Industry officials say the cost of adding the filters could be more, depending on the layout of each plant.

"It is not an insubstantial investment that we are making," said Maria Korsnick, chief nuclear officer with Exelon Corp. (EXC) unit Constellation Energy, during Wednesday's hearing.

With U.S. nuclear operators already contending with competition from power plants running on low-priced natural gas, the added expense could be "another chip away at the viability of the nuclear industry overall," said Julien Dumoulin-Smith, a utility industry analyst with UBS.

Asbestos over WHO limit found at 17 spots in disaster areas
Asbestos levels in excess of the World Health Organization (WHO)'s safety limit were found in 17 locations at building dismantling sites in areas hit hard by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, it has been learned from government sources.

From fiscal 2008 to 2010, only four locations -- such as in Yamanashi and Aichi prefectures -- were found in the Ministry of the Environment (MOE)'s testing to be over the limit.

An expert said of the newly found locations, "It's only the tip of the iceberg. There are surely many building dismantling sites that have been overlooked. We have no proof that even levels under the WHO standards bring no adverse health effects, and a swift response to this asbestos problem is crucial."

The MOE and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) have monitored asbestos levels at building dismantling sites and debris processing sites from June 2011 through December 2012. At 17 dismantling sites in Miyagi, Fukushima, Ibaraki and Tochigi prefectures, asbestos levels from 10.6 to 783.5 strands per liter of air were found. The WHO safety standards call for less than 10 strands per liter.

TEPCO Fukushima rebuilding office has 1st meeting

Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, has held its first executive meeting at its new headquarters in Fukushima Prefecture to discuss reconstruction after the 2011 nuclear disaster.

The meeting on Friday came one week after TEPCO launched the Fukushima Revitalization Headquarters in Naraha Town, about 20 kilometers south of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi plant. The office was set up to respond to criticism that the utility is slow to compensate and decontaminate after the disaster at the plant.

TEPCO Chairman Kazuhiko Shimokobe and President Naomi Hirose were among 30 executive and other officials at the meeting.

Battle over Bechtel clean-up at Hanford escalating after police reports filed

More outrage is building over prominent employees at Hanford blowing the whistle about how Bechtel has rushed the project in order to make a quick buck.  Despite decades of cleanup efforts and billions of taxpayer dollars spent, only a tiny fraction of Hanford’s radioactivity has been safely contained, and the situation appears to be getting more polarized if not hostile.

On December 20th, 2012, a police report was filed related to a December 19th meeting at an office building where DOE employees were involved in a disagreement about how much money should be paid to Bechtel National for sodium reduction work at the vitrification plant at Hanford where Bechtel holds a $12.2 billion contract to build a facility to treat up to 56 million gallons of radioactive waste left from the past production of plutonium from the nation’s nuclear weapons program.

Lack of know-how, manpower for unrivaled vast-scale decontamination

The Environment Ministry disclosed Jan. 7 two cases of contractors failing to collect water used for decontamination in areas affected by the Fukushima nuclear crisis under a central government project.

While the ministry renewed its call on those contractors to step up oversight, they are not equipped with the adequate know-how or manpower to handle an unprecedented event that spewed a large volume of radioactive materials on a vast tract of land. It looks like a blanket solution is nowhere in sight.

Following the reactor scram, all rods were verified to be fully inserted and the Primary Containment Isolation System Group II (Reactor Building) and Group VI (Reactor Water Cleanup System) actuations occurred as designed due to the expected reactor water level shrink associated with the scram signal. All other plant systems responded as designed.
