Whistleblower raises safety questions at public Browns Ferry meeting
[link to enewscourier.com]


About midway through the Q&A, Johnson stepped to the microphone to ask the NRC regulators if they would be concerned to discover that safety reports had been altered by nuclear plant officials.

Johnson, who was thanked by several people at the meeting for her willingness to come forward, told The News Courier that safety reports had been changed during a two and a half year period after being submitted by Browns Ferry safety team members.

She declined further comment about the nature and timing of the report alterations due to a pending discrimination suit filed against TVA, and her participation in an ongoing NRC investigation into allegations that TVA officials discouraged negative safety findings to receive performance bonuses and keep the plant’s three reactors running continuously.

Johnson, who has submitted her resignation, said her last day at the plant is today after serving 26 years as an electrical engineer for TVA.

Federal regulators say overwork, noise led to Harris nuclear plant mistake
[link to www.newsobserver.com]


In the spring of 2012, during a refueling outage, ultrasonic tests showed four tiny flaws in the nozzles, which were promptly fixed.

The same ultrasonic tests also indicated another irregularity. This one, however, went undetected by contractors and plant operators for 13 months. The flaw, suggesting that primary water stress cracking had begun to develop, was not detected until this May, forcing the shutdown of the plant.

The NRC noted that in May, a year after the initial ultrasonic discovery, the damage was a third bigger. The corroded area, located at a weld-point of a nozzle in the reactor lid, expanded from 1/4-inch to 1/3-inch, but never led to a leak of radioactive material.

The two specialists who missed the flaw were fully qualified, suggesting that time pressure or inadequate oversight caused them to miss the fifth flaw, the NRC said.

Tepco measured high level of radioactive material from groundwater and it’s in the increasing trend.

Tepco still defines it as a “possibility” that the contaminated groundwater is leaking to the sea.

The former Fukushima worker Happy11311 commented on Twitter that 450 tones/day of groundwater is flowing to the sea since before 311.

He states before 311, Fukushima nuclear plant pumped up 850 tones of groundwater everyday. Now 400 tones of water flows to the basement of the plant. 450 tones of groundwater is let flow to the sea.

Second Fukushima debris storage survey underway

Japan's Environment Ministry has started a land survey at a second candidate site for storing radioactive soil and debris near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The survey began on Friday in Naraha Town. It is one of 3 areas where the government wants to build intermediate storage facilities for contaminated debris.

Senior Vice Environment Minister Shinji Inoue observed workers using heavy machinery and taking soil samples.

He told reporters that the survey is behind schedule and that the ministry hopes to open the facility in early 2015.

Radioactive water dumped into river for agricultural water in Fukushima

JDC Corp., a medium-sized general contractor, discharged 340 tons of radiation-contaminated water into a river for agricultural water in Minamisoma, Fukushima Prefecture, following the March 2011 nuclear disaster, JDC sources said Thursday.

But officials of relevant local governments complained they had been left unaware of the action.

JDC sources said the company took the action because it thought there would be no problem after hearing the governmental Japan Atomic Energy Agency had explained the action to the relevant local governments.

Kyushu Electric files for safety checks on 2 more reactors

Kyushu Electric Power Co. on Friday filed for state safety assessments on two more reactors, raising the number of units in Japan seeking to restart operation to 12 after the new safety requirements were introduced earlier this week.

Power utilities are hurrying to file for safety reviews by the Nuclear Regulation Authority as they want to restart reactors that have remained idled due to concerns over the use of nuclear power in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi complex disaster.

Kyushu Electric Power filed applications Friday for the Nos. 3 and 4 reactors at the Genkai nuclear power station in Saga Prefecture. It has already taken the same procedures for the Nos. 1 and 2 reactors at the Sendai plant in Kagoshima Prefecture.

Health ministry warns of rubella vaccine shortage due to outbreak

National Jul. 12, 2013 - 06:00AM JST ( 24 )

TOKYO —

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has warned that there is likely to be a rubella vaccine shortage later in the year.

The ministry this week announced that 359 new cases of rubella were reported throughout Japan in the week ending June 30, according to figures provided by the Infectious Disease Surveillance Center. Fuji TV reported Thursday that the figures bring the total number of cases reported nationwide this year to 11,991. The number of infections reported this year so far is already over five times the annual total for 2012.

The American Medical Association has passed a resolution calling for the US to continue to monitor and publicly report radiation contamination in seafood. The original resolution included the language that cited Fukushima as a main reason for the concern and focused on the Pacific ocean. The final resolution broadened it to include all seafood.

The resolution was approved before the recent announcement that Fukushima Daiichi has been continually leaking contamination into the Pacific for the last 2+ years.

The resolution is a good step for public health. The current policy of the FDA does no ongoing seafood testing for radiation. That done soon after the Fukushima disaster was vague, using frozen fish of unknown catch date and fish with an unknown catch location within Japan. The FDA and USDA so far have not publicly released any seafood testing for products hauled places other than Japan. The current US contamination level before the government will intervene is 1200 bq/kg far higher than other countries including Japan.

Nuclear renaissance was just a fairy tale

The promise of cheap, low-carbon power – with 31 new reactors in the US – was based on rhetoric and obedience. Anyone who doubts that should read the new status report on the industry

The renaissance story line was hard to resist. By early 2009, applications for 31 new reactors were pending at the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The promises came garnished with tales of remorseful changes of heart from oft-obscure nuclear converts. With few exceptions, the news media – especially television, with its thirst for the short and the simple – fell for the rhetoric.

Still the band plays on.

It is all in ruins now. The 31 proposed reactors are down to four actually being built and a few others lingering on in search of a licence, which is good for 20 years. Those four are hopelessly uneconomic but proceed because their state legislatures have committed to finish them as long as a dollar remains to be taken from any electric customer's pocket. Operating reactors are being closed as uneconomic for the first time in 15 years.

In the astonishing persistence of the global appetite for false nuclear promises lies the critical importance of the World Nuclear Industry Status Report, published on Thursday.

In short, the nuclear renaissance – whatever it may be called throughout the world - has always consisted entirely of the number of reactors whose excess costs governments were prepared to make mandatory for either customers or taxpayers. Investor capital cannot be conscripted. Investors of the sort that nuclear power must attract study risks carefully. They know the information in this report, and so should everyone else with responsibility for energy decisions that allocate nuclear risk.

NRC: Minor violation for missed NC nuke plant flaw

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Analysts hired to look for flaws inside a Duke Energy Corp. nuclear plant might have missed a tiny crack near the reactor core that went undetected for a year because they worked for weeks without a day off and may not have worked independently, a report Thursday by federal regulators said.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission's inspection report found the operators of the Shearon Harris nuclear plant near Raleigh violated an NRC requirement by failing to find and report the quarter-inch spot of corrosion and cracking near the reactor core. The discovery forced a full shutdown in May after fresh eyes reviewing year-old data found the problem.

The violation had very low safety significance, and four smaller flaws were found and fixed last year, the NRC said. There was never any radiation leakage from the reactor vessel, which contains the heat and pressure produced by the nuclear core's energy, the NRC said. Duke Energy has returned the plant to full power.

How San Onofre's new steam generators sealed nuclear plant's fate

San Onofre's replacement generators were supposed to extend the nuclear plant's life and save money. The opposite ensued.

In March 2004, an attorney for Southern California Edison sat before state utility regulators to propose what seemed like a great deal.

The San Onofre nuclear plant was approaching the end of its life span. But Edison wanted to invest $680 million in new steam generators, attorney Carol Schmid-Frazee told a judge presiding over a hearing at the California Public Utilities Commission's San Francisco headquarters. The new equipment, she said, would give the 2,200-megawatt plant a new lease on life, providing cheap, reliable energy in Southern California for decades to come while also saving ratepayers nearly $2 billion.

Edison's lawyer also issued an ominous warning: If regulators did not approve the upgrade, the plant would close, provoking "very serious problems with the California electric grid."

The commission was persuaded, and Edison began remaking San Onofre.

But less than a year after the new steam generators came online, a tube in one of them sprang a radioactive leak, setting off a chain of events that ultimately led Edison to close the plant permanently. The generators that were supposed to save San Onofre ended up killing it, and today the atomic behemoth sits idle, never again to produce a watt of power.

Instead of a boon to California, the steam generator replacement became a billion-dollar debacle, leaving 1,100 workers facing layoff and the plant's owners, suppliers, regulators and customers wrangling over who is to blame, how to replace the plant's power — and who will pay for the mess.

Countries: Germany, Belgium (Cattenom, Chooz and Fessenheim) France, Switzerland the Rhine basin is more than 60 million people.
If the power plant Beznau in Switzerland, one of the oldest in the world, 43 years of activity and which was converted to run on MOX, explodes the river pollution will irrigate the entire area.
Combating anti nuclear concerns not only the readers of this page, it should concern all those who risk a heavy contamination radiotoxique and all those who are empathetic.
Nuclear has no borders, that is why the next action will be European and will take place March 9, 2014 along the Rhine (Rhine made more than 1200 km long and crosses 4 densely populated countries.)

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Typhoon Soulik's strong winds caused one of the reactors at Taiwan's First Nuclear Power Plant to automatically shut down as part of precautionary measures twice on Saturday.

At 2:50 a.m. on July 13, strong winds knocked out systems designed to reduce the likelihood of direct lighting strikes on the facility at the plant's number two reactor unit, resulting in an automatic shutdown. While repairs were carried out on the system, the reading for the number of neutrons became exceedingly high, once again leading to an emergency shutdown as part of protection measures.
