I run a Beach Bar here - and have met a few of the sailors/officers that were actually on the ground/sea back when all this shit started.

I kid you not, when I say - all of them (that I spoke with) believe nothing really serious happened - is happening now - and that there is absolutely nothing to be concerned about.

TEPCO releases final report on Fukushima disaster
The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has released the final report of its internal investigation into the crisis following the March 11 disaster last year.

The company admits it failed to adequately prepare for the nuclear emergency, but it also criticizes the government for adding to the unnecessary confusion of the accident.

The report released on Wednesday is based on interviews with about 600 TEPCO employees, on-site inspections, and analysis of other data.

Alarm goes off at Oi nuclear plant, 1st trouble since restart decided
An alarm went off Tuesday night at the No. 3 reactor of the Oi nuclear power plant in Fukui Prefecture, indicating a minor problem, the plant operator and the government said Wednesday during preparations to reboot the reactor.

It was the first sign of trouble since the government decided Saturday to restart the plant's Nos. 3 and 4 units, the first among all of Japan's 50 reactors that went offline in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear crisis

TEPCO justifies in nuclear accident report failure to predict huge tsunami
Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Wednesday, in its final report on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster, admitted it was not sufficiently prepared to deal with tsunami-triggered nuclear accidents, but the utility justified its failure to predict the huge tsunami that hit the complex last year.

The over 10-meter-high tsunami that followed a huge earthquake on March 11, 2011, was "beyond expectations," the report said, reiterating the company's earlier view that the larger-than-expected tsunami was the direct cause of the nuclear crisis, while criticizing the government for interfering in its efforts to bring the nuclear complex under control.

Bloody liars... an earlier report clearly shows that they were aware of the tsunami risk...

Big solar power plant to be built in Fukushima
Japanese electronics maker Toshiba will build several solar power stations in a city near the disabled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Toshiba managing director Takeshi Yokota signed an agreement with the mayor of Minamisoma, Katsunobu Sakurai, on Wednesday.

Under the contract, the company will build the plants along the coast. The area is designated as a tsunami risk zone, where construction of new houses has been banned since last year's disaster.

They will provide up to 100 megawatts of electricity---enough to meet the demands of 30,000 homes.

Work starts to restart Ohi No.4 reactor
The operator of the Ohi nuclear plant in Fukui Prefecture has begun work to restart the No. 4 reactor, following similar operations at the No. 3 reactor last Saturday.

Kansai Electric Power Company began the 2-week job of cleaning pipes connected to the turbine at the No. 4 reactor on Thursday.

The company then plans to spend about 10 more days checking pipes connected to the reactor, and testing control rods.

The No. 3 reactor is scheduled to restart on July 1st, and the No. 4 reactor, on the 17th.

Full operation is expected to start at the No. 3 reactor on July 8th, and the No. 4, on July 24th.

Nuclear agency to review PR procedures on troubles
Japan's nuclear safety officials will boost their public relations efforts after criticism they were slow to reveal problems at the Ohi nuclear power plant in central Japan.

Officials from the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said on Thursday they will quickly disclose even minor irregularities.

Both the nuclear regulator and the operator of the Ohi plant were criticized for delaying their disclosure of problems at one reactor on Tuesday. The plant is run by Kansai Electric Power Company.

The trouble was disclosed about 13 hours after an alarm sounded, indicating the water level had fallen in a tank used to cool an electric power generator at the No.3 reactor.

Japan to speed up Fukushima nuclear plant cleanup

By Kiyoshi Takenaka and Yoko Kubota

National Jun. 22, 2012 - 06:51AM JST ( 19 )

TOKYO —

Workers at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant will begin removing fuel rods from a damaged reactors a year ahead of schedule, a government minister said Thursday, a move to address concerns about the risk of a new quake that could cause a further accident and scatter more radioactive debris.

“We would like to start taking out undamaged fuel this year. Preparation is now under way,” Japan’s nuclear crisis minister, Goshi Hosono, told Reuters in an interview.

“Doing it quickly is important. But we also have to make sure those workers out there, who are struggling under harsh conditions, will not be endangered by trying to move things fast.”

“It will be 10 years, 20 years, probably even more before decommissioning is complete,” Hosono said. “The task will not be sustainable unless we train the next generation of talent, and the generation after that.”

Lithuania approves nuclear power plant project
Lithuania's parliament has approved a plan to build a nuclear power plant in the Baltic country.

The approval on Thursday is expected to advance negotiations for the contract with Hitachi. The Japanese maker was granted preferential negotiating rights for the project last year.

Hitachi submitted its proposal to build the plant with its US partner General Electric. The cost of construction is expected to be about 5 billion dollars.
