Crucial Cooling Systems Restored at Fukushima Plant, Company Says
[link to www.nytimes.com]

[snip]

But the cutoff of the vital systems appeared to support fears by some experts and critics that the plant remains dangerous in part because some vital safety systems were makeshift fixes devised at the height of the nuclear crisis.

Tokyo Electric, also known as Tepco, acknowledged the concern. “Fukushima Daiichi still runs on makeshift equipment, and we are trying to switch to something more permanent and dependable,” a Tepco spokesman, Masayuki Ono, told reporters Tuesday as the company worked to restore the cooling systems.

With the company as the only source of information, it was impossible this week to independently assess the conditions at the plant, which sits in a contaminated zone that is closed to the public. On Tuesday, the company was criticized for waiting three hours before revealing the power failure to the public.

Tepco said a faulty switchboard might have been to blame in the latest power failure. Though the company has backup generators at the site, it appeared to have been unprepared for a switchboard failure.

Plants to get grace period for new crisis measures

Japan's regulator is to give nuclear plant operators a 5-year grace period to implement additional safety measures to deal with emergencies such as aircraft crashing into facilities.

The Nuclear Regulation Authority on Tuesday discussed the new safety guidelines to be adopted in July.

These will legally oblige operators to take steps to ensure their plants can withstand severe accidents caused by extreme natural disasters or acts of terrorism. Such measures are currently left to the operators' discretion.

The new guidelines will require operators to quickly implement some of the steps as a condition for restarting idled reactors.

TEPCO probing cause of cooling trouble

Tokyo Electric Power Company has restored 4 cooling systems for spent-fuel pools at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The systems had been out of order for about 29 hours, raising concerns about a rise in the cooling water's temperature.

It was the longest interruption to the cooling system since the nuclear meltdown following the March 2011 quake and tsunami.

A brief power failure caused 9 systems to fail, including the cooling systems for the spent fuel pools of the No. 1, 3 and 4 reactors, and a shared pool in the plant's compound, shortly before 7 PM on Monday.

TEPCO said the problems began when 3 power distribution boards stopped working.

The utility said it restored 2 of the boards, and all the cooling systems were functioning again by shortly past midnight on Wednesday.

Rat suspected of causing power problem at Fukushima plant

The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant said Wednesday it suspects a rat-like animal of causing a short circuit in a switchboard that may have led to the power outage at the plant, disabling cooling systems for spent fuel pools earlier this week.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said it found burn marks on a makeshift power switchboard on Wednesday and a dead animal nearby. The utility suspects excess current caused by an unknown reason led to the blackout.

The switchboard is connected to the cooling systems for the spent fuel pools of the Nos. 3 and 4 reactors as well as a common pool located inside another building at the site.

Power outage at Fukushima Daiichi blamed on rodents

TEPCO announced yesterday that it had restored the cooling systems for the four spent fuel pools which were knocked out for nearly 30 hours before restoration.  All in all, the outage caused 9 systems to fail, after three power distribution boards stopped working.

TEPCO officials have said that one of the power distribution boards which was temporarily installed on a truck may hold the secret as to why the outage occurred.  Littered around the temporary terminal were the carcasses of small rodents and mice, leading some TEPCO workers to worry about the possibility of a short circuit.

Britain gives green light to new nuclear plant

Britain gave the go-ahead on Tuesday for the first of a planned new generation of nuclear power plants.

Energy minister Ed Davey told parliament he was granting planning consent for French energy giant EDF to build a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset, southwest England.

The proposed £14 billion ($21.1 billion, 16.2 billion euros) power station will be capable of producing seven percent of Britain's electricity, enough to power five million homes, EDF has said.

Nuclear safety expert pushes to upgrade S.C. atomic plants
[link to www.thestate.com]

[snip]

South Carolina’s atomic power plants are potentially more vulnerable to disasters than a Japanese reactor involved in a rare radiation leak two years ago, a national nuclear safety advocate said this week during a visit to the Palmetto State.

“We have known safety hazards at these plants, and we have known fixes,” he said in an interview Tuesday with The State. “We have plans and promises, but they are not the same protection as actual solutions when fully implemented. Our call to action is for our audiences to ask, demand, insist or request that these things get fixed.”

Lochbaum’s presentation in Columbia said none of the state’s nuclear reactors meet federal fire code regulations. Nor do any of the operating reactors conform with regulations to provide better earthquake protection, his presentation said. He singled out Duke Energy for missing a deadline to upgrade a fire safety system.

Roger Hannah, a spokesman for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, said the public has no reason to worry about nuclear power plant safety.

“If we had major safety issues, the plants would not be operating,” he said

NRC apologist shows little objectivity
[link to www.pottsmerc.com]

[snip]

In response to Forrest Remick’s Feb. 11 letter, Mr. Remick’s assertions are shameful, but predictable. As a former NRC commissioner, he is a nuclear industry apologist with little objectivity. NRC officials typically overlook, minimize, and/or deny serious threats. A Rolling Stone Article (April 2011) supported the claim that “NRC Is Little More Than A Lap Dog To The Nuclear Industry.”

Remick used Exelon’s spin, not facts, when making unsubstantiated claims that Limerick’s March 19, 2012 radioactive spill was minor, well below safe limits, and didn’t impact health and safety. Health impacts for almost two million people using drinking water with increased radiation from Limerick’s radioactive spill into the Schuylkill River can never be accurately measured because Exelon (a company that has shown it can’t be trusted) did all the testing, didn’t report on all radionuclides spilled, and failed to notify the public until 23 days after the spill. Records show just one radionuclide spilled was five times the official so-called “safe limit.”

Fukushima plant outage reveals lack of backup power source 2 years after crisis outbreak
[link to mainichi.jp]

[snip]

It was the plant's first major blackout that affected multiple facilities for longer than 24 hours since the onset of the nuclear crisis, sending shivers throughout the country. The switchboard is connected to the cooling systems for the spent fuel pools of the No. 3 and No. 4 reactors as well as a shared pool, according to TEPCO. The malfunction of the switchboard is suspected to have further affected other equipment connected to it by cables.

The blackout also revealed TEPCO's lack of measures against small animals, such as the use of rodent deterrents and other medical agents. Because the switchboard's container has a half-open door to lead in cables, "it leaves the system vulnerable" to place the switchboard outdoors compared to inside the highly-sealable plant buildings, said TEPCO officials.

Chinese nuclear disaster “highly probable” by 2030
[link to www.chinadialogue.net]

[snip]

China is heading for a nuclear accident if it continues with current construction plans, says former state nuclear physicist and prominent critic He Zuoxiu



If we refer to the data from Japan’s experiences, China will “most probably” suffer a nuclear disaster around 2050.

But if China sticks to plans to build another 30 third-generation power stations between 2015 and 2020, the risks rocket. No AP1000 reactors – one of the key third-generation designs – have yet been built anywhere in the world, meaning there are no reactor-years of experience. Only the figures of 267 reactor-years from Three Mile Island’s 267 reactor years and Chernobyl’s 162 reactor-years can be used as reference. Even if we take the larger of those numbers, that brings the “most probable” period for a nuclear accident in China forward to between 2020 and 2030.

Some may say that “theoretically” third-generation reactors are safer than their second-generation equivalents. In fact, these 30 nuclear power plants will use reactors that have not been operationally tested. They are all being built inland and all face problems with water supply. Several third-generation plants, including Pengze in Jiangxi and Taohuajiang in Hunan, each with six reactors, cheated during the environmental impact assessment process, with no action taken by the National Nuclear Safety Administration.

Nuclear decision-makers aim to build up to 500 nuclear power stations by 2050, exceeding the current global total of 443, and allowing the country to claim the world’s number one spot.

About two-thirds of people who filed compensation claims relating to the Fukushima nuclear disaster are still waiting for a government body to settle their cases.

The Japanese government set up an arbitration body to mediate settlements between the operator of the Fukushima Daiichi plant, Tokyo Electric Power Company, and the victims of the accident.

Arbitrators have received about 5,800 claims from September 2011, six months after the nuclear disaster, through Monday.

But only about 1,900 have been settled.

TEPCO: Rat likely caused Fukushima power failure

Tokyo Electric Power Company says a small animal may have caused a power failure at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

A utility spokesperson says the firm's engineers found the burnt body of what looked like a rat near a switchboard installed outside the building.

He said the engineers suspect the animal touched the switchboard which caused a short circuit, resulting in the blackout on Monday.

He also said many parts of the plant lost power as there was no emergency electrical circuit system due to a temporary integration of 2 power lines as a result of construction work.

The power failure led to operations being suspended at 9 facilities in the Fukushima plant. The affected units include the pools of the No. 1, 3 and 4 reactors and another pool to cool down spent fuel rods.

French nuclear energy firm Areva says it is preparing to ship recycled plutonium fuel to Japan.

The firm made the announcement on Wednesday.

The shipment will be the first since the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, that triggered one of the world's worst nuclear accidents.

Areva produces plutonium-uranium mixed oxide, or MOX fuel, from spent nuclear fuel to burn for power generation. It has made 4 shipments to Japan, the last was in 2010.

The firm has not disclosed details such as when a ship carrying the fuel will leave France and at which nuclear plant it will be used.

Japan's nuclear authority suggested Tuesday it will check Kansai Electric Power Co.'s Oi nuclear power plant, currently the only one with online reactors in the country, according to new safety standards, prior to their introduction in July, to avoid suspension of the plant's operations.

Shunichi Tanaka, chairman of the Nuclear Regulation Authority, said after a regular meeting at which the NRA compiled a basic policy for the introduction of the reactor safety standards that the Oi plant's No. 3 and 4 reactors in Fukui Prefecture will undergo safety checks possibly in April or later.

If no problems are found with the Oi reactors, the NRA will authorize their continued operation until September, when they have to undergo routine maintenance, Tanaka said.
