Alstom to renew 3,512MW Darlington nuclear plant in Canada

France-based Alstom has secured a contract from Ontario Power Generation (OPG) to refurbish and renew the 3,512MW Darlington nuclear plant, located in Darlington, Ontario.

Under the long-term contract, valued at EUR265m, Alstom will renovate four units each with a capacity of 900MW at the facility and increase the lifespan of the plant by another 25 to 30 years.

United States: A New Step Forward in Reactor Safety and Performance

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has approved AREVA's new ARCADIA core simulator system used for core performance analysis in pressurized water reactor plants in the United States. This major step forward will enable AREVA to offer a broader portfolio of products for the U.S. nuclear power generation market.

Unexpected gas releases from Hanford tank
[link to www.nwcn.com]

[snip]

Confidential sources say it began on March 16 and lasted for several days, much longer than usual, and they worry a single spark could have set off an explosive release of radioactivity.

This comes two days after a report by a government panel expressing concerns about the release of flammable gasses at Hanford and the government's inability to respond to them.

Workers who toil above the buried Hanford tank farms constantly monitor the tanks for gas build-ups and will conduct controlled releases to reduce pressure. We're told this was a spontaenous release, not controlled.
 Quoting: Waterbug


Maybe the expansion of the gasses is part of what makes the tanks leak? I know the material inside is corrosive, but they don't seem to last near as long as the design life. Seems like a good theory to me.

Can't be helping.
Seems as though the gas occasionally builds up faster than they can relieve the pressure.
This would make the most sense to me, if they monitor them 24/7.
I'm going to guess and say the original calculations didn't take this into account.
The size of the pressure relief system may have been adequate at one time, now.. not so much.

So far, they aren't letting us know much about the process.

TEPCO removing radioactive water

Tokyo Electric Power Company has begun transferring radioactive water from a leaking storage tank at its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The company says radioactive strontium and other substances were detected on the ground around a storage tank from Wednesday to Friday.

TEPCO estimates that 120 tons leaked so far based on the change in the level of water in the tank.

The work began on Saturday morning.

Workers are using 4 pumps to transfer radioactive water in the tank to an adjacent tank.

The utility says the leaked water has not flowed into the ocean because there is no ditch around the tank, and the sea is some 800 meters away.

Damage level: minor

The company operating the disaster-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant (NPP) in northern Japan warned about the possibility of radioactive water leak, the Kyodo news agency reported on Friday. The Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said that “contaminated water may have leaked into soil from one of the seven underground reservoir tanks,” the agency reported. Radioactive substances have been detected in the water that accumulated outside the tank, covered by three layers of waterproof sheets. The exact volume of leak is unknown, but radiation levels in the water stand at about 6,000 Becquerel per cubic centimeter. Earlier on Friday, the company reported that a cooling system of the Unit Three spent atomic fuel storage facility temporarily failed at approximately 5:30 a.m. GMT, but the problem was fixed in about three hours. Three similar incidents were reported at spent fuel facilities at the plant’s units One, Three and Four last Month.

Niger students protest French group's uranium revenues

Some 2,000 students held a protest in Niger's capital Niamey on Friday against French nuclear group Areva to demand their country get a bigger slice of its uranium mining revenues.

Marchers held aloft placards saying "No to exploitation and neo-colonialism" and "No to Areva".

"The partnership in the mining of uranium is very unbalanced to the detriment of our country," said Mahamadou Djibo Samaila, secretary general of the Union of Niamey University Students that organised the protest.

Mo. nuclear reactor closes next week for refueling

FULTON, Mo. (AP) — The Callaway Energy Center nuclear reactor will close next week for normal refueling work that is not related to an accident near the plant that injured four people, company officials said.

Four contract workers were injured in a switchyard about 300 yards from the plant Tuesday during what Ameren Missouri called an "electrical flash." Ameren had reported three workers were injured but company officials said Thursday a fourth person was hurt while trying to help the other three. The company declined to release information on the workers' conditions.

Finland's Fennovoima in talks with Rosatom over reactor

Finnish power company Fennovoima said Friday it was in exclusive talks with Russia's Rosatom over building a mid-sized nuclear reactor, after dropping bids by France's Areva and other suppliers.

The winning bid for the planned reactor, which will be located in Pyhaejoki in northwest Finland, will be announced this year, Fennovoima said, adding that a design by Japan's Toshiba for a larger reactor remains the only other candidate.

"Toshiba and Rosatom are the only companies Fennovoima is now negotiating with," Chairman Pekka Ottavainen told AFP.

Well... we wondered what they'd do when they ran out of
hard tanks for storage.
Did they run out of tanks or has nationalization made them more cost-conscious(cheaper than they already were)?

Cutting corners to save money is partly what caused this in the first place.
Privately owned nuclear plants for profit, place profit before safety,
recklessly gambling the safety and health of the public, relying on long odds in their favor..

We subsidize their construction, pay for the product, pre-pay for decommissioning,
pay to clean up their messes, pay with our health when they screw up..
and the owners profit.

Helluva racket.

No matter how carefully designed and executed, what gets lost in the shuffle, is human error...
both in the design and in the execution.

In all matters mechanical, Murphy's Law is ubiquitous.

Deadliest submarine disaster in US remembered
[link to www.google.com]

[snip]

Family and friends who lost loved ones when the USS Thresher sank 50 years ago joined in tossing wreaths into the water Saturday in an emotional service in remembrance of the 129 Navy crew members and civilian technicians who lost their lives in the deadliest submarine disaster in U.S. history.

The USS Thresher, built at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and based in Connecticut, was out for a routine deep-diving test when it ran into trouble on April 10, 1963.

The Navy believes the failure of a brazed weld allowed sea water to spray onto an electrical panel, causing an emergency shutdown of the sub's nuclear reactor. The ballast system also failed, preventing the sub from surfacing.

Filling with water, Thresher descended deeper and disintegrated under the crushing force of the ocean. Its remains rest on the ocean floor at a depth of 8,500 feet.

Another leak... the whole place is leaking...

TEPCO reports leak from another water storage tank

Tokyo Electric Power Company says it has found a small leakage of contaminated water from a storage facility at its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. This follows a recent massive leak from another underground tank.

The company examined a contaminated water storage tank adjacent to the underground tank that had leaked 120 tons of radioactive water. The 2 tanks have the same structure.

TEPCO says a small amount of radioactive strontium was detected just outside a triple-layer of waterproof sheets underneath the storage tank, leading to discovery of the leak.

The tank contains more than 10,000 tons of contaminated water.
But the utility says it is a minor leak as it hasn't observed any change in the tank's water level and the concentration of radioactive substances is low.
