Niigata governor protests nuclear safety standards

The governor of Niigata has refused a Cabinet minister's request to allow a nuclear power plant operator in the prefecture to apply for a government safety screening to restart operations.

Economic Revitalization Minister Akira Amari met Governor Hirohiko Izumida in Tokyo on Tuesday.

Izumida said that undergoing a government safety screening and deciding to restart the plant are separate issues and consistent efforts should be made to heighten safety.

Amari sought the governor's approval for Tokyo Electric Power Company to apply for the screening process to restart its Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant in Niigata Prefecture.

Unbelievable...

Tourists to Fukushima Pref. rebound to 77% of pre-quake level

The number of tourists to Fukushima Prefecture rose 26.3 percent in 2012 from the previous year to 44.46 million, rebounding to 77.8 percent of 2010, the year before the triple disaster -- an earthquake, a tsunami and a nuclear meltdown -- struck, the prefectural government said Monday.

Tourism "steadily recovered due to restoration of tourist facilities and declining misinformation about the nuclear power plant accident," an official at the prefecture said.

The survey showed that tourists last year to the region including the Futaba district, which is home to the quake-disabled Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, were still 74.1 percent fewer than 2010

The survey was conducted jointly by the prefecture and local municipalities at a total of 374 tourist spots and events, nine places more than the previous year.

Roughly 250 to 300 new reactors worldwide depending on output specifications... at the same time hundreds of the current +400 reactors needs to be replaced... there's no way the nuclear industry will be able to build that many in just 30 years... the capacity to build that many reactors is missing and it will take decades to create it... it's just wishful thinking... just my speculations...

Asian growth to boost global energy demand

World energy consumption will increase by 56% between 2010 and 2040, according to the US Energy Information Administration. Nuclear power generation is expected to double over that period, but coal will remain the dominant fuel for electricity.

Electricity generation from nuclear power plants is forecast to increase from 2620 TWh in 2010 to 5492 TWh in 2040. Substantial increases in nuclear generating capacity are projected, including 149 GWe in China, 47 GWe in India, 31 GWe in Russia and 27 GWe in South Korea. However, nuclear's share of global electricity production will only grow from 13% to 14%.

COOK: MANUAL REACTOR TRIP FOLLOWING SECONDARY PLANT TRANSIENT

On July 28, 2013, at 1018 EDT, DC Cook Unit 2 Reactor was manually tripped due to lowering steam generator level caused by an automatic trip of the west main feed pump. The west main feed pump tripped on low suction pressure resulting from a secondary plant transient. The cause of the secondary transient is still under investigation.

This event is reportable under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B), Reactor Protection System (RPS) actuation, as a four (4) hour report, and under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A), specified system actuation of the Auxiliary Feedwater System, as an (8) hour report.

The DC Cook Sr. Resident NRC Inspector has been notified.

The electrical grid is stable and Unit 2 is being supplied by offsite power. All control rods fully inserted. Decay heat is being removed via steam dumps to the main condenser. Preliminary evaluation indicates all plant systems functioned normally following the Reactor Trip. DC Cook Unit 2 remains stable in Mode 3 while conducting the post trip review. No radioactive release is in progress as a result of this event.

Fukushima steps up tainted water monitoring

The government of Fukushima Prefecture in northeastern Japan has stepped up monitoring of seawater around the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

The prefecture took the move after the plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, admitted last week that groundwater contaminated with radioactive substances was leaking into the sea.

The government increased the number of sampling sites from 2 to 6 and monitoring frequency from once every 3 months to every month.

About 185 liters of seawater is to be sampled at each of 6 points from the plant's port to 3.5 kilometers offshore to analyze levels of 4 radioactive substances, including cesium and tritium.

EDF to pull out of US nuclear due to shale boom

French power company EDF (EDF.PA) is to withdraw from the US nuclear market because of the way shale gas has altered the American energy sector.

Instead, EDF will focus on developing its renewables business in America. However, the company has stressed that its nuclear intent elsewhere in the world – particularly the UK – remains strong.

EDF chief executive Henri Proglio (pictured) said the prospects for nuclear power in the US had been dealt a major blow by the “true revolution” of shale gas, which he said had “completely reshaped the landscape of electric power generation in favour of gas”.

Constellation Energy Nuclear Group to Be Integrated into Exelon Nuclear Fleet

KENNETT SQUARE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 30, 2013-- The three commercial nuclear power plants operated by the Constellation Energy Nuclear Group (CENG) in New York and Maryland will be operationally integrated into the Exelon Generation nuclear fleet over the next nine months, CENG co-owners announced today.

The consolidation of the two commercial U.S. nuclear fleets includes transferring the operating licenses of the plants to Exelon Generation, Exelon and Électricité de France (EDF) said in a joint announcement.

The three CENG plants include five reactors capable of generating more than 3,900 megawatts at full power (a megawatt is a million watts). They include:

-- R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant in Ontario, NY, a single 577-megawatt
pressurized water reactor.

-- Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station in Scriba, NY, two boiling water reactors
totaling 1,595 megawatts.

-- Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant in Lusby, Md., two pressurized water
reactors totaling 1,753 megawatts.

An application to transfer the operating licenses from CENG to Exelon will be submitted to the NRC within days. Review and approval typically requires six to nine months."

FB [snip] Fukushima Diary's Mochizuki

On 7/30/2013, Tepco claimed shutting down of nuclear power plant is contributing to increase CO2 emission in their report of “Result of CO2 Emission and CO2 Emission Factor in FY 2012″.

The CO2 emission due to Fukushima decommissioning is not mentioned in the report.

Their report is below,

Our CO2 emission factor in FY2011 based on the “Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures” was 0.406kg-CO2/kWh (a 12% decrease compared to the previous year) with Kyoto mechanism credits, etc. taken into account. Consequently, our 5-year average CO2 emission factor over the period from FY 2008 to FY 2012, to which our self-imposed target applies, is expected to be 0.377kg-CO2/kWh (an 0.8% decrease compared to FY 1990).

In FY 2012, our CO2 emission was 141.2 million tons (a 14% increase compared to the previous year) since power generated by thermal power generation increased due to the shutdown of nuclear power stations although the electricity sales was at almost the same level as that in the previous year. However, as we reflected Kyoto mechanism credits, etc., corresponding to 32.1 million tons, we saw a decrease in CO2 emission factor compared to the previous year.

We set a self-imposed target, which is “to reduce our CO2 emission factor (the five-year average CO2 emission factor) by 20% compared to FY 1990″, and made efforts to achieve this target. However, we do not expect that we can achieve the target even when an additional credit that will be issued later for FY 2012 is reflected in the comparison against the self-imposed target.

The CO2 emission factor in FY 2012 will be announced as “actual emission factor, adjusted emission factor, etc., per electric utility company” after the government review.

Entergy replaces radiation monitors; state asks the NRC to investigate “spurious” radiation spikes at Vermont Yankee
[link to fairewinds.org]


Four times since mid-June, monitors have recorded “spurious spikes” in radiation levels inside the Vermont Yankee plant.

The “false positives” for high radiation levels were a result of faulty equipment that produced inaccurate results and did not indicate there were actual increases in radiation in the building that contains the spent fuel pool, according to Rob Williams, a spokesman for the plant.

Entergy notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission of the equipment malfunction last week.

On Friday, the Vermont Department of Public Service sent a letter to NRC asking for a “full accounting” of the incidents. In addition, Darren Springer, deputy commissioner of the department, insisted the NRC require Entergy to report serious equipment “failures” immediately. The first spike occurred on June 14; the state was notified of the incidents on Thursday. Under NRC rules, Entergy has 60 days to file a report.

Chris Recchia, commissioner of the department, said the false positives are alarming because the radiation monitors are the fundamental warning system for the plant. The monitors, he said, must be perfectly calibrated so that the readings are accurate. “What happens if there was actually a radiation leak and the equipment didn’t register anything or didn’t register the proper amount?” he said.

Springer expressed this sentiment in the official letter to the NRC, which the agency is obliged to respond to. “Failure of the radiation monitoring equipment is a serious issue, and could have under other circumstances led to significant harm if the failed equipment had not detected a radiation release at the plant,” he wrote.

Safety screening urged for Niigata nuclear plant

Members of Japan's government-financed fund for nuclear damage liability facilitation have urged the operator of the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant to apply for government safety screening soon to restart reactors at a plant in Niigata.

Restarting the 2 reactors at the Kashiwazaki-Kariha plant is seen as essential for Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, to fulfill its promise to the government and financial institutions to move into the black in fiscal 2013.

Fukushima begins radiation level checks on children

The Fukushima prefectural government has started internal radiation level checks on children under 4 years old who were previously too small to undergo the checks with a standard whole body counter.

The equipment for measuring internal radiation levels is designed for people with the height of adults. Fukushima officials have now fitted the equipment with a 90-centimeter high chair to allow smaller children to be tested.

The checks, which started on Thursday, cover children who lived in 5 municipalities designated as evacuation zones following the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident in March 2011.

Int'l experts deny fault at Tsuruga plant is active

A nuclear reactor at Japan Atomic Power Co.'s Tsuruga plant in western Japan does not sit above an active fault, contrary to the determination of nuclear regulators, foreign and domestic experts commissioned by the plant operator to study the issue said Thursday.

"There is clear evidence that...the faults (in question) at the Tsuruga nuclear power plant are not active," the experts, including Neil Chapman, a professor at the University of Sheffield in Britain, and Kelvin Berryman, a geologist at GNS Science of New Zealand, said in a summary of their findings.

Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority concluded in May that a fault called D-1, which runs below the No. 2 reactor, could have moved in the last 120,000 to 130,000 years -- a timeline that determines whether faults are active in Japan.

Three-year delay in Lee licensing

A decision on Duke Energy's application to build the proposed William States Lee nuclear power plant could be delayed by three years, the US regulator has stated.

Duke submitted a combined construction and operation licence (COL) application with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for the proposed Lee plant at the end of 2007. The application is based on two Westinghouse AP1000 pressurized water reactors with a combined capacity of 2234 MWe at a greenfield site in Cherokee County, South Carolina.

In October 2012, Duke informed the NRC that it planned to relocate the two units "in order to manage project construction risks." Both units will be relocated 66 feet (20 metres) south and unit 1 will be relocated 50 feet (15 metres) east. At that time Duke expected that, "The impacts of relocation on the Lee COL application will be minor and are expected to simplify COL application presentation and improve margins to associated acceptance criteria."

However, the NRC has now informed Duke that its decision to relocate the Lee units "will require rework and affect the staff's completion of the review."
