State's new nuclear agency gets cloak of secrecy
[link to www.dailypress.com]

[snip]

Virginia is creating a new agency to support development of nuclear power – a move that has upset environmentalists and open-government advocates, because the entity won't have to comply with the state's Freedom of Information Act and other laws.

For the past year or so, companies that work with nuclear energy have been speaking with experts at Virginia universities with nuclear engineering programs and at industry-related nonprofit groups. The goal was to foster collaboration among nuclear-energy advocates, according to Del. T. Scott Garrett, R-Lynchburg.

In January, Garrett introduced a bill to create the Virginia Nuclear Energy Consortium Authority. Sen. Jeffrey McWaters, R-Virginia Beach, sponsored companion legislation in his chamber. Both bills were passed by the General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Bob McDonnell.

DOE finalizing plans to dump man-made uranium in Nevada

WASHINGTON –  A Department of Energy plan to drag hundreds of canisters of radioactive nuclear material into the Nevada desert for a “shallow land burial” is raising safety concerns as experts worry what could happen if the security of the bomb-making material were compromised.

Energy officials told FoxNews.com the department is preparing to ship 403 welded steel containers of a man-made highly radioactive cargo to the Nevada National Security Site, about an hour northwest of Las Vegas. 

The canisters would carry about 2.6 kilograms of uranium-233 and uranium-235 – two products so dangerous that they require safety escorts and can only be handled with remote-controlled cranes. 

The radiation at the exterior of the canisters is about 300 rads (radiation absorbed dose), which categorizes it as a high-hazard level. According to Robert Alvarez of the Institute of Policy Studies, this raises serious proliferation and safety concerns.

350 layoffs pending at nuke plant

The operator of the San Onofre nuclear plant is moving forward with a fourth round of layoffs that began in December in an effort to trim more than 700 employees.

Southern California Edison gave advance notice under federal regulations that it will reduce staff by 250, commencing on June 3. A previous notice documented 100 layoffs starting April 26.

The twin reactor plant on the northern edge of San Diego County has been shut down since January 2012 because of a small radiation leak and the subsequent discovery of rapid wear on tubing within recently replaced steam generators.

Point Lepreau operating at less than 1% capacity

More problems at the Point Lepreau nuclear generating station have had the plant operating at less than one per cent power since Wednesday night, NB Power acknowledged late Friday.

"We were at less than zero (per cent) late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning," utility spokesperson Kathleen Duguay stated in an email to CBC News.

"We have been evaluating the benefit of going to zero since early last week."

NB Power says it continues to have problems with the chemistry of the water in Lepreau's non-nuclear boilers, an issue that caused the reactor to be turned off once already in December.

Brazil revives nuclear power plant

ANGRA DOS REIS, Brazil (CNN) -- A government-controlled firm is forging ahead with plans to resume expansion of Brazil's nuclear power program.

The Brazilian government has authorized the company, Electronuclear, to go back to work on the nation's third nuclear power plant.

Work on the Angra 3 reactor, near Rio de Janeiro, has been stalled for 22 years by a lack of money and political issues.

But the administration of President Luiz Ignacio Lula da Silva is turning to nuclear power to meet electricity needs that are growing with the country's booming economy.

"Things have changed a lot, and today it's clearer to everyone that nuclear energy has a role to play in the Brazilian electrical system, just like the other forms of producing electricity, which can't be dismissed," said Leonam Guimaraes, an Electronuclear spokesman.

Westinghouse CEO makes global push as market shifts

Danny Roderick spent four days last week in the Czech Republic to nudge his company, Westinghouse Electric Co., closer to winning a potential $10 billion contract to build two nuclear reactors there.

The outcome is important to the Cranberry-based company's growth in the nuclear power business and employment levels. Such long-term mega projects don't come around often and account for 20 percent of Westinghouse revenue.

“We're working very hard in international markets to bring in one of those orders,” Roderick said in a recent interview. “It's still going to be a few years before anything new breaks in the United States.”

IAEA sends experts to damaged Fukushima plant

A team of experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency is on its way to Japan to review the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

Team leader Juan Carlos Lentijo left Vienna, Austria, for Tokyo on Saturday. Lentijo is director of the Agency's division of nuclear fuel cycle and waste technology.

He will be joined by 12 experts, including several specialized in reactor decommissioning.

They are scheduled to visit the Fukushima plant from Wednesday through Friday. The team will assess decommissioning work at reactors 1, 2 and 3, which suffered core meltdowns.

S. Korea divides nuclear plant controls from Internet: Yonhap

The state-run operator of South Korea's nuclear power plants has separated its internal computer network from the Internet in an effort to guard against possible North Korean cyber attacks, Yonhap News Agency reported Sunday.

It said Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co. has also completely divided its nuclear plant control systems from its internal computer networks and restricted both systems' access to the Internet, while USB ports of the plant control systems have also been sealed.

The network separation is the safest way of protecting the nuclear power plants from hacking attacks from the outside, the company explained, according to Yonhap.

Transfer of radioactive water to be delayed at Fukushima plant

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Sunday it has postponed the transfer of radioactive water from a leaking underground tank at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant because it needs more time to conduct safety checks and install a water pipe.

The operator of the crisis-hit plant in northeastern Japan had planned to start moving contaminated water from the No. 2 tank to an above-ground container located about 400 meters away.

However, the utility known as TEPCO discovered Thursday that about 22 liters of contaminated water had leaked from a junction of the piping for transferring liquid from the No. 3 tank to the No. 6 tank.

Nuclear batteries offer energy savings for mines

An Ontario-based nuclear energy company claims that only nuclear power can completely replace diesel and other fossil fuels to power northern mining projects.

The final day of the mining symposium included short presentations energy and infrastructure for mines, and Lang was the only delegate who claimed to have an alternative energy source that could completely supply the energy needs of a large-scale mining operation in northern Canada.

Dunedin Energy System’s “nuclear battery” technology, “small modular adaptable reactor technology,” known by the acronym SMART, is now in a “vendor design review” stage, Lang said.

The company will produce its first operational demonstration unit in about five years. Dunedin’s system uses a replaceable nuclear-reactor module, known as a nuclear battery, which is replaced every 20 years. It eliminates the need for constant re-supply of diesel fuel, Lang said, thus offering major savings on rising transportation costs, and does not pollute.

The replaceable “nuclear battery” is about the size of a large bus, capable of producing up to 25 megawatts of energy — enough to power a mine like the Meadowbank gold mine near Baker Lake. Once depleted, the battery would be removed and sent back south for recycling, to be replaced by a new module.

Lawsuit seeks evacuation of Fukushima children

THEIR demand: The right to live free of radiation. The plaintiffs who started the legal battle: 14 children.

A Japanese appeals court is expected to rule soon on this unusual lawsuit, filed on behalf of the children by their parents and anti-nuclear activists in June 2011 in a district court in Fukushima city, about 60 kilometres west of the crippled nuclear plant that spewed radiation when a massive earthquake and tsunami hit it more than two years ago.

The lawsuit argues that Koriyama, a city of 330,000, should evacuate its children to an area where radiation levels are no higher than natural background levels in the rest of Japan, or about 1 millisievert annual exposure.

San Onofre to the Public: DROP DEAD!

The bitter battle over two stricken southern California reactors has taken a shocking seismic hit.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has ignored critical questions from two powerful members of Congress just as the Government Accountability Office has cast serious doubt on the emergency planning at the San Onofre nuclear plant.

At a cost of some $770 million, Southern California Edison and its partners installed faulty steam generators at San Onofre Units 2 and 3 that have failed and leaked.

Those reactors have been shut since January 2012 (similar defects doomed Unit 1 in 1992).

Plutonium found outside of containment in marine soil at Fukushima Daiichi

TEPCO has been forced to take drastic measures to deal with the continual contamination of the Pacific Ocean from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.  To quell the transfer of contaminated marine soil, the utility worked to cover the ocean floor in the port with concrete.  They later discovered that the fish life in the port was highly radioactive, which forced them to seal the entrance of the port to prevent as much fish from escaping as possible.

This week, TEPCO announced that it had detected Plutonium 238, Plutonium 239, and Plutonium 240 in the marine soil in the port at Fukushima Daiichi near the Unit 1 water intake canal.
