Nuclear energy hearing disrupted by presence of power company employee
[link to www.equities.com]

[snip]

A government-sponsored event in Sendai to listen to citizens' views on future energy and environmental policy was temporarily disrupted Sunday after a ranking official of Tohoku Electric Power Co. was found to be among the nine speakers chosen and expressed what he said was the company's view in support of nuclear power generation.

The speakers also included individuals from the Tokyo metropolitan area rather than from the disaster-hit region, a choice critics say could anger people in the region. The government said the speakers were picked randomly.

B&W receives three contracts from U.S. Naval Reactor Programs
Babcock & Wilcox received three contracts worth $73 million to develop technology and manufacture components for the U.S. Naval Reactors Program.

The work, to be done by B&W’s Nuclear Operations Group, is for Navy training operations and other programs.

No new jobs are expected as a result of the work, said spokeswoman Carla Parks Wooley in an e-mail.

Delays, cost increases at nation's new nuclear projects
Despite promises from the nuclear industry to regulators and consumers that they learned from mistakes of the past, the nation's first two nuclear reactor projects built from scratch in 30 years are headed toward hundreds of millions of dollars in cost overruns and months, if not years, of delays

The impact of the early delays and budget increases at Georgia Power's Plant Vogtle and South Carolina Electric & Gas's Plant Summer will have on future nuclear projects is unclear.

Utilities' officials say the Georgia and South Carolina projects face extra public and private scrutiny because they are the first approved and their design will serve as prototypes for future plants.

The challenges include more than $800 million in overruns and a dispute over who should pay for them.

A nuclear option: After 25 years, Genoa reactor's waste gets new home
GENOA, Wis. — On Thursday, a 64-wheel beast of a truck creeping along at just under 1 mph hauled a cask of radioactive waste from a long-dormant power plant to a concrete pad between Hwy. 35 and the Mississippi River, the first of five such trips it will make this summer in one of the final chapters of the Coulee Region’s atomic era.

A quarter century after Dairyland Power Cooperative shut down its La Crosse Boiling Water Reactor, the spent fuel remains. Starting last week and continuing through the summer, workers are transferring the radioactive waste into dry cask storage in a move designed to save the company millions in annual costs.

Nuclear power plant safety promises sit on shaky ground
[link to mainichi.jp]

[snip]

Electric power companies have been reluctant to make preparations. In October last year, Kansai Electric Power Co. submitted the results of its "stress test," or safety evaluation, of the No. 3 reactor at its Oi nuclear plant. The first item in the evaluation is how many hours it would take for the plant's nuclear fuel to be damaged in the event of a total blackout. The power company concluded it would take "16 days" -- on the grounds that earthquakes and tsunamis were not part of its considerations. But after NISA pointed out that it was only natural to take earthquake and tsunami into consideration, the utility revised the time down to "one week." With no reinforcements, the time it would take for fuel to be damaged would drop further to just "a few days."

Other power companies submitting the results of stress tests to NISA are also eliminating earthquakes and tsunamis from their calculation on the time it would take for fuel to be damaged. But the whole reason the government imposed stress tests on nuclear power plants in the first place was because of the Fukushima nuclear crisis -- an event triggered by an earthquake disaster. The current stance of power companies casts significant doubt on whether they are seriously considering a major accident.

San Onofre’s Steam Generators: Significantly Worse than All Others Nationwide
[link to www.fairewinds.com]

pdf [link to fairewinds.org]

[snip]

Therefore, according to NUREG-1841, San Onofre’s eight plugged tubes are an anomaly for the US nuclear industry. Remarkably, the situation at San Onofre Unit 2 and Unit 3 is decidedly worse than indicated in Edison’s March statements. In its May 15, 2012 press release Edison indicated that at total of 1317 tubes were plugged in San Onofre Units 2 and 3 rather than the mere 8 tubes originally delineated. At its June 18, 2012 Augmented Inspection Team (AIT) presentation, the NRC confirmed to the general public and California state and municipal officials that this extraordinarily high number of tubes had been plugged. In its review of the evidence provided by the NRC and Edison, Fairewinds compared San Onofre’s data on its plugged tubes to the NRC’s data from other plants that have undergone steam generator replacements in order to determine how severe the damage is at San Onofre in comparison to the industry as a whole.

As evidenced in Figure 1, Edison has plugged 3.7 times more tubes in its San Onofre Units 2 and 3 replacement steam generators than the nationwide total of all plugs inserted in all the remaining replacement steam generators in all US nuclear reactors. Moreover, the NRC and Edison have not openly informed the public about the magnitude of tube generator plugging at San Onofre compared to the remainder of U-tube damage at other US reactors.

Wha...? More shenanigans...?

Lot of 'collateral damage' if they screw something up at San Onofre..

New details about problems at San Onofre nuclear power plant
[link to latimesblogs.latimes.com]

[snip]

A May 7 analysis by Edison that was leaked to the advocacy group Friends of the Earth, discussed the issues in more detail. Edison officials confirmed the report was authentic.

According to the analysis, while designing the new steam generators, Mitsubishi input parameters like fluid temperatures, flow rates from the primary side of the reactor system and steam generator dimensions and used a number of computer codes, some developed by Mitsubishi, in various phases of analysis, to predict whether the tubes would experience vibration issues.

The reason that the design codes and assumptions did not accurately predict the issues that arose is not fully understood, the report said.

The report also noted examples of two other plants -- Three Mile Island and Arkansas Nuclear One -- that had experienced problems with tube to tube wear, but noted,“although tube-to-tube wear had occurred in the industry in the past, it was not comparable in magnitude to that experienced at SONGS."

Couple things...

Would we have learned the true edison analysis results if they hadn't been leaked to an advocacy group...?

“The company understands the NRC’s position and a license amendment request will be submitted for the nuclear island basemat/rebar design.”

Such an amendment, if approved by the NRC, could alter the design specifications to include the rebar now deemed non-compliant, thus avoiding delays or added costs associated with removing and replacing the material.

Both the cost and the construction schedule for the $14 billion project have garnered attention from the Georgia Public Service Commission because of its potential impact on ratepayers.

No excuse for NRC to ignore spent fuel rods in re-licensing nuke plants

40 years after promising to provide a repository for the nation’s spent fuel, the federal government is no closer than it was 40 years ago.

So why on God’s green earth would the NRC go ahead and make re-licensing decisions that will only result in the creation of more of this toxic radioactive waste without taking into consideration the potential costs involved in keeping it safe or, heaven forbid, cleaning it up?
But that is just what the NRC is doing.

Public hearing on energy policy options
The government held its first public hearing on Japan's nuclear energy policy for the year 2030.

Nine members of the public expressed opinions at the meeting held on Saturday in Saitama City near Tokyo. Industry minister Yukio Edano attended.

Government officials have offered 3 energy policy options following the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The options establish Japan's reliance on nuclear power in 2030 either at zero percent, around 15 percent, or between 20 to 25 percent.

At the hearing, a person who wants to eliminate nuclear plants said the Fukushima accident has convinced him that nuclear power is not safe. He called for advancements that will allow renewable energy to take over from nuclear power.

Research shows Shika atomic plant may sit on active quake fault
Governmental research has suggested a strong possibility that a fault beneath Hokuriku Electric Power Co.'s Shika Nuclear Power Station may be active, raising questions about the utility's claim in the late 1990s that it is inactive, sources familiar with the research said Monday.

Government regulations do not allow construction of a nuclear reactor above an active quake fault. If it is confirmed active, the Shika power station may be labeled as sitting on premises ineligible for a nuclear power plant.

Finland's Olkiluoto 3 reactor delayed again
Finnish utility Teollisuuden Voima (TVO) announced a new delay to the start of its Olkiluoto 3 nuclear reactor, saying it will not begin electricity production in 2014.

Finland's fifth nuclear reactor was originally scheduled to start operations in 2009, but has been hit by repeated delays and soaring costs.

TVO has disagreed with its plant supplier, a consortium of Areva and Siemens AG, over who is responsible for the delays. On Monday, it cited delays in automation system engineering and installation works.

"There has been slower-than-estimated progress in installing pipelines and electricity systems, they have taken more time than was previously estimated, but clearly the automation is the main issue," TVO's spokeswoman Anna Lehtiranta said.

Nuclear operator to release secret Fukushima tapes

Former Japanese prime minister Naoto Kan, who was in office during the Fukushima nuclear meltdowns, has told the ABC he believes the plant's operator has been hiding key evidence.

For months TEPCO has resisted pressure to release critical recordings, arguing they are in-house material and to release them would compromise the privacy of those on the tapes.

The company now says it will bow to months of pressure from Mr Kan and the government and release the many hours of teleconference video taken in the days after last year's meltdowns.

But it has confirmed crucial audio of a heated exchange with Mr Kan is missing, claiming its hard drive was full.

The recordings are a window into the decisions, dramas and dangers at the heart of the world's worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl, and Mr Kan says the withheld information is "crucial".

"This is extremely important material which is needed to investigate the cause of this accident," Mr Kan told the ABC in an exclusive interview.

"It's like the black box flight recorder on an aeroplane. The black box is crucial to understanding how an accident happened. So too are these recordings."
