EPIC EFFIN FAIL: Fukushima Was Doomed Because Mobile Generators Had The Wrong Plugs!!!
Typical government operation. Design one component one way, design one another way and make sure they're as incompatible as possible.

Just like the round and square air filters on Apollo 13.

The diesel generators were destroyed by the tsunami. So mobile diesel generators were trucked in. This is where things started to go seriously wrong. The external power generators could not be connected to the power plant (the plugs did not fit). So after the batteries ran out, the residual heat could not be carried away any more.

What a load of crap... if you can't plug the things in, you cut & splice the wires together.

Don't buy that one a bit... not with that being the explanation.

There's plenty of actual *DOH!* moments with this installation though...

Putting the water-vulnerable gens underground (to be flooded) and the fuel tanks for those gens at ground level (to be washed away) was idiotic.

Why was there no mobile diesel generators on the site ever then?
Uh huh more lies right?Wrong plugs? lmao They have electrical engineers on staff at the site ffs they could change any plug for anything.

When the earthquake hit with 8.9, the nuclear reactors all went into automatic shutdown. Within seconds after the earthquake started

Are you implying that the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) employs thousands of electricians who could connect a generator even without a plug????

Folks, IGNORE THIS. The Business Insider has been spamming sites all over the internet with false shit to drive traffic to their site.

Just report it as spam.

This rumor was out 2 days ago. Cut & splice . I think they have personnel at a atomic nuke electrical generation plant that could handle it.

I mean from the videos and pics there was no sight of any portable generators.
I know if there had have been a real risk of nuclear meltdown they would have hooked up power in that 8 hours.
This is why I think the whole thing is a stunt to demonize nuclear power because it gives no profit from carbon tax.

There has never been any mention of them other than that site trucking in or even flying in with chopper emergency portable generators.
And the wrong plugs thing is ridiculous obviously.

Its not the "plugs" you dipshits. its the switchgear.
do you think they just bolt and splice some copper wire to the hot?
you cant do that with big power unless you want to blow you and all your equipment to kindom come. get an EE and you can start talking smack about how you could do better.
dipshits.
