TEPCO gears up to restart reactors by self-developing equipment

Tokyo Electric Power Co. will equip its idled nuclear reactors with filtered venting systems developed on its own as part of its efforts to swiftly seek their restart, company sources said Thursday.

Japanese utilities are trying to install the system because it will become one of the new safety requirements for reactors from July as a measure to deal with severe accidents, but it is rare to self-develop the system. Other utilities have outsourced the equipment to companies such as heavy electric machinery makers.

S. Korea, US extend nuclear pact

South Korea and the United States have agreed on a two-year extension to a civilian nuclear pact that Seoul wants amended to allow it to produce its own nuclear fuel, officials said Wednesday.

The current pact, signed in 1974, had been due to expire next year. The extension was agreed to allow more negotiations on the heated topic of allowing the South to reprocess spent fuel rods.

NRC expanding social outreach efforts with new live chat next week

In 2009, President Obama issued a memorandum to executive agencies which outlined guidance for the use of social media to increase outreach efforts.  In January 2011, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission launched its first official blog.  Over the course of the last few years, the NRC has been working to expand their social media impact.

This week the agency announced that they will be working to expand its social media outreach by launching a new live chat discussion platform on April 30th, which is geared to increase the NRC’s presence on the internet.  The chat is similar to the existing NRC blog, but will feature moderated discussion with NRC experts responding to approved questions.  Questions can be submitted early by sending them to opa.resource@nrc.gov. Please put CHAT in the subject line.

There is a reason, as shown above in the video, why the Obama administration DRASTICALLY once again has increased radiation limits on April 14th 2013

"Obama Approves Raising Permissible Levels of Nuclear Radiation in Drinking Water.
Civilian Cancer Deaths Expected to Skyrocket"


"In soil, the PAGs allow long-term public exposure to radiation in amounts as high as 2,000 millirems.
This would, in effect, increase a longstanding 1 in 10,000 person cancer rate to a rate of 1 in 23 persons exposed over a 30-year period."

HMS Torbay nuclear submarine evacuated
A nuclear submarine in Devonport dockyard had to be evacuated after a fire broke out while maintenance work was being carried out.

About 55 people had to leave when the fire broke out as welding was being done on the outside of the Trafalgar class submarine, said the Royal Navy.

The "small fire" among protective blankets was put out within five minutes by a fire crew, it said.

The Royal Navy said no-one was injured and an investigation would take place.

It added the submarine had not been damaged.

Early warning system
A Royal Navy spokesman said: "Before the fire service arrived, the fire was put out by a member of the Royal Navy crew in response to an alert by the duty watch.

"In accordance with normal procedure, the submarine was evacuated of crew and contractor workers, numbering about 55.

"They later returned to the submarine after the fire service gave the all-clear having checked the area for further risk of fire.

"The early warning system on board and on-going training of the crew and contractors restricted the fire to a very small event."

He also said the investigation will aim to "learn lessons" to avoid similar incidents.

Japan court rejects demand to evacuate Fukushima children
[link to ajw.asahi.com]

[snip]

The unusual lawsuit was filed on behalf of the children by their parents and anti-nuclear activists in June 2011. The Sendai High Court handed down its ruling on April 24.

The case had drawn international attention because it touched the uncertainties about the effects of continuous low-dose radiation on health, especially that of children, who are far more vulnerable than adults.

The lawsuit argued the city of Koriyama had legal responsibility to evacuate children at elementary schools and junior-high schools, which are part of compulsory education under Japanese law.

The court acknowledged radiation in the city exceeded levels deemed safe prior to the disaster. But it said the government shoulders no responsibility for evacuating the schools as demanded--in effect, telling people to leave on their own if they were worried.

On today's podcast, Arnie and Helen discuss the associated health risks of various types of radioactive releases, how regulators and the nuclear industry are downplaying those releases, and the current state of the Fukushima clean up. "The recovery of the site will go nowhere as long as Tokyo Electric is in charge," says Arnie.

Chernobyl marks 27 years since nuclear accident

A memorial ceremony has been held in Ukraine to mark the 27th anniversary of the world's worst nuclear plant accident at Chernobyl.

On April 26th, 1986, an explosion occurred at the plant's No.4 reactor under experimental operation. Ukraine was part of the now-defunct Soviet Union at the time.

The accident released a massive amount of radioactive materials. About 30 plant workers and firefighters died after suffering acute radiation exposure.

The United Nations estimates that about 6,000 children near the plant have developed thyroid cancer.

In the town of Slavutich, people mourned the victims by leaving candles and flowers at a monument on Friday morning. Slavutich is 50 kilometers from the Chernobyl plant and many of the maintenance workers live in the town.

They prayed that the accident will never be repeated.

The damaged reactor was covered with a protective structure made of concrete and metal right after the disaster.

But the so-called stone coffin has deteriorated. The Ukrainian government is building a new shelter with a budget of more than one billion dollars that includes financial support from Japan, the United States and Europe.

Steps to halt increase of radioactive water at Fukushima plant studied

A government-appointed panel of experts on Friday started studying ways to prevent more radioactive water from accumulating at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, including a plan to embed walls around the damaged reactor buildings to stop groundwater from entering.

About 400 tons of groundwater seep into the plant every day, flowing into the lengthy and complicated water circulation loop that keeps the plant's damaged reactors cool. In the process, the groundwater becomes contaminated.

U.S. Senators Seek Comments on Plan to Store Nuclear Waste

In a bid to restart discussion of what to do with the nation's nuclear waste, four U.S. senators today unveiled a draft plan to create a federal agency that would oversee short- and long-term storage of the highly radioactive materials produced primarily by commercial power reactors. The effort follows the Obama administration's decision to abandon a planned centralized waste repository under Yucca Mountain, Nevada, which led to recommendations from a blue ribbon panel assembled by the White House on what to do next.

"Our country can't wait any longer to find a long-term solution for disposing of nuclear waste," said Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), the chair of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, in a statement. "I'm hopeful the feedback we receive will help us finish the job and allow us to move forward with legislation that puts the U.S. back on the path to safely managing and permanently disposing of the most radioactive wastes."

The first footage in 50 years has been taken of what lies inside the UK's first fast breeder nuclear reactor.

Digital cameras were inserted into the reactor housed within Dounreay's dome.

The cameras, designed and manufactured in nearby Wick, recorded images of the internal structures and the breeder fuel matrix.

Dounreay in Caithness was the centre of the UK fast breeder reactor research programme from 1954 until 1994. The site is now being demolished.

Utility picks new design for proposed North Anna reactor

RICHMOND -- Dominion Virginia Power plans to switch the type of nuclear reactor it would use in its proposed North Anna 3 power plant.
But the Richmond-based utility emphasized that it has not made a decision to build the third reactor at North Anna.

The new-design General Electric-Hitachi reactor would be more economical to buy and simpler — and thus safer — to operate over the unit’s planned 60-year life than existing and competing technologies, the company said.
The company told the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Thursday that the General Electric Hitachi Economic Simplified Boiling-Water reactor would be “the best solution to the company’s need for future baseload generation” of electricity.

Radiation detected from wells at Fukushima Daiichi

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says it has newly discovered small amounts of radioactive substances from more than half of the wells set up around underground storage pools.

Tokyo Electric Power Company says radiation was detected on Friday in water from 13 of the 22 wells around 3 storage pools that recently leaked. The wells are located 10 to 20 meters from the pools.

The water contained up to 0.048 becquerels of radioactive substances per cubic centimeter.
