The U.S. Nuclear Power Industry's Dim Future

A year ago, Exelon (EXC), the largest operator of commercial nuclear plants in the U.S., killed plans to build a 3,000-megawatt plant in Victoria County, Tex. After shuttering its Crystal River reactor in Florida, Duke Energy announced in May that it would not build two plants in North Carolina. In June, MidAmerican Energy, majority-owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK/A), decided not to go ahead with new nuclear plants in Iowa. Of those 24 applications for reactors filed in 2008, only four have resulted in new construction. “In a competitive market, you can’t even come close to making the math work on building new nuclear plants,” says Daniel Eggers, a utilities analyst with Credit Suisse (CS). “Natural gas is too cheap, demand is too flat, and the upfront costs are way too high.”

John Rowe, Exelon’s ex-chief executive officer, says the era of building large-scale nuclear plants in the U.S. may be over. “You don’t build a new plant for the sake of monument building. You only do it if it makes economic sense. Right now, it doesn’t. If it did, the capital would be readily available.”

Expert: Future of Ohio nuclear power plants in doubt
[link to www.thenews-messenger.com]

Shrinking profitability threatens the viability of aging nuclear power plants, including both in Ohio, according to an expert on nuclear power economics.

“We are now officially seeing the so-called nuclear renaissance in reverse,” said Mark Cooper, senior fellow for economic analysis at Vermont Law School’s Institute for Energy and the Environment.

The Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Plant in Oak Harbor is identified by Cooper as one of “the dozen at greatest risk” for closure in the country. The Perry Nuclear Power Plant northeast of Cleveland is also named in Cooper’s report. He said owners of at-risk plants could be faced with “retire or repair decisions within the next 10 or 20 years.”

More nuclear power production was turned off in the first half of this year than in any single year in the history of the American commercial nuclear sector, Cooper said during a Wednesday conference call with reporters.

The Nuke Factory in Your Backyard

How the U.S. quietly turned a civilian atomic power site into a so-called bomb facility — and what it means for the global arms race
[link to medium.com (secure)]

The activities at the Columbia plant, illuminated here in depth after years of obscurity, offer a rare peek into the widespread and largely unknown civilian participation in America’s nuclear weapons complex — a scattered and privatized industry that defies efforts to reduce nuclear stockpiles, and arguably undermines official U.S. policy and the key treaty aimed at preventing a runaway global atomic arms race.

“Such assembly has resulted in the de facto conversion of the Westinghouse fuel plant into a nuclear bomb facility,” argues Friends of the Earth, an environmental group that closely tracks the nuclear industry.

The site doesn’t produce tritium itself; that happens at a different civilian nuclear power facility in Tennessee. Here, a Westinghouse subsidiary called WesDyne makes the rods essential to it. It’s a first stop in the little-known production chain that winds around the Southeast and helps tritium end up in some capacity in perhaps all U.S. nuclear weapons.

Forty Good Years and One Bad Day

The other alternative is to prevent the radiation from going out. Well, the horse is already out of the barn on that. The radiation is pretty much thoroughly throughout not just the reactor containment but also the other buildings. But it’s still critical to seal all those penetrations that are leaking. You have to find the leaks and plug them. Now that’s exacerbated by the fact that this already a very high radiation zone. It’s not like you can send somebody in with a caulking gun to slap some caulking in these. The radiation levels are frequently near lethal and finding and stopping those leaks – there’s a priority to get the nuclear fuel out of those nuclear reactors. But it’s going to be extraordinarily difficult because of the high radiation levels. So the best solution for the amount of water that’s being built up – 400 tons a day – is to drop the water table and to prevent any further water from going in. Fairewinds has been approached by two American manufacturers with solutions to the problems at Daiichi and trying to get that technology implemented in the Daiichi cleanup. The Japanese have rejected both of these American manufacturers. And I’m sure there’s been others. But the fact of the matter is that the technology for the Zeolite trench is in use in America right now at the West Valley site and has a proven track record of being very, very effective. So we’re in a situation where an effective American technology is being prevented from being implemented in Japan by either the Japanese government or Tokyo Electric, and I really don’t know which.

Mitsubishi Heavy to fight nuclear plant negligence claim in California

LOS ANGELES — Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd will fight Southern California Edison’s allegations of gross negligence in the design and manufacture of steam tubes built for the San Onofre nuclear power plant, which has been permanently shut down due to excessive wear in the tubes.

Mitsubishi sent a reply to a contract dispute filing from Southern California Edison that said the company “grossly failed to appropriately model” conditions in the steam generators it designed and built, leading to the early retirement of the power plant.

Edison argues that Mitsubishi is liable for costs that could run into the millions or even billions of dollars.

In a statement, Mitsubishi called SCE’s contentions “factually incorrect, legally unsound and inappropriate.” The company said it will defend itself through a dispute resolution process.

Here's a juicy little admission..chuckle


Release of nuclear plant ‘effluents’ into lake described as part of normal cycle
[link to www.harborcountry-news.com]


The May 5 release of about 80 gallons of slightly radioactive water from the Palisades nuclear power plant into Lake Michigan was unusual because it wasn’t planned.

But the incident brought into focus what many Southwest Michigan residents likely didn’t realize: The region’s two nuclear power plants (Palisades and the Donald C. Cook Plant in Lake Township) routinely discharge radioactive material into the air and into Lake Michigan.

In the nuclear industry, it’s called effluents.

The federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission allows such releases, as long as they are closely monitored and do not exceed federal radiation release standards set in place by the NRC.

“Plants need to discharge small amounts of radioactive materials to operate,” said Jack Geissner, branch chief for the regional NRC office.


John Cassidy is a senior health physicist for the NRC regional office in Lisle, Ill. His job is to perform radiation inspections at the regional plants and study plants’ dosimetry records. Dosimeters measure absorbed doses of radiation.

Radiological releases are an inevitable part of the nuclear power industry, he said.

The concept of demanding that the users of electrical energy must pay for the construction costs of the nuclear plants is totally unfair but has been in effect in Florida for several years through Florida Statute 366.93. It has cost the rate-payers billions of dollars with absolutely nothing to show for it — and in the case of Progress Energy Florida, this money has gone directly into the pockets of the stockholders.

TOKYO — “Attack of the mutant vegetables!! Are these our new tomato overlords?? Let’s all boycott the struggling Fukushima farmers for, oh, say 100 years or so.”

Actually, despite the attention they’re receiving and hits they’re no doubt generating online, the photo at left and others like it don’t seem to originate from Fukushima at all.

The scary veggie pics went viral on the Internet. This is the kind of story that keeps showing up again in different incarnations. It’s just too good a story — I mean, who doesn’t want to see freakish vegetables? People love freakish vegetable pics. 

So, where and when were these photos taken? I tracked down this tomato to find out.
