Nuclear plants to seek restart under new guideline

Six nuclear power plants will apply for restart under new safety guidelines to be adopted by the country's nuclear regulators on Wednesday.

The Nuclear Regulation Authority is expected to implement a new set of rules that oblige power companies to put in place measures to deal with serious accidents. Until now, such measures had been deemed voluntary.

Utilities will also be asked to draw up safety scenarios for bigger earthquakes and higher tsunami.

NHK has learned through interviews with 10 Japanese power companies that 6 nuclear plants are preparing to apply for resumption of operation as soon as the new guidelines go into effect on July 8th.

The plants are Tomari in Hokkaido, Ohi and Takahama in Fukui Prefecture, Ikata in Ehime Prefecture, Genkai in Saga Prefecture and Sendai in Kagoshima Prefecture.

Nuclear Plants, Old and Uncompetitive, Are Closing Earlier Than Expected

Washington — When does a nuclear plant become too old?

The nuclear industry is wrestling with that question as it tries to determine whether problems at reactors, all designed in the 1960s and 1970s, are middle-aged aches and pains or end-of-life crises.

This year, utilities have announced the retirement of four reactors, bringing the number remaining in the United States to 100. Three had expensive mechanical problems but one, Kewaunee in Wisconsin, was running well, and its owner, Dominion, had secured permission to run it an additional 20 years. But it was losing money, because of the low wholesale price of electricity.

WOLF CREEK: TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION REQUIRED SHUTDOWN DUE TO NON-FUNCTIONAL CLASS 1E ELECTRICAL A/C UNIT

Class 1E A/C Unit SGK05A cools safety related electrical train 'A' and was declared non-functional at 1111 hours. As a result, the following supported safety related electrical equipment was declared inoperable: 4.16 KV Bus NB01, 480 volt Buses NG01 and NG03, 120 volt Instrument AC Inverters and Buses NN11, NN13, NN01 and NN03, 125 VDC Chargers and Buses NK11, NK13, NK01 and NK03. T/S 3.0.3 was entered from T/S 3.8.7 due to two out of four 120 volt AC Inverters (NN11 and NN13) being inoperable. All electrical systems listed above remain available but are declared inoperable due to inadequate room cooling capability. Plant shutdown to mode 5 commenced at 1125 hours. No major equipment is out-of-service. All systems have functioned normally. Plant is currently at 55% power ramping down. Plant must be in mode 3 by 1811 CDT. No compensatory measures have been established.

Xcel Energy still making big investments in nuclear power

Three U.S. utilities are closing older nuclear reactors, but Xcel Energy is investing $1.8 billion to keep its two Minnesota plants operating for another two decades.

As some U.S. utilities are abandoning old nuclear power plants, Xcel Energy says it’s investing $1.8 billion to extend the life of its 40-year-old Minnesota reactors.

At the company’s Prairie Island nuclear plant in Red Wing, Minn., 1,550 contract workers this fall will replace two massive steam generators — at $280 million, its single most costly improvement project. The plant was completed in 1974 at a cost of $350 million.

The Minneapolis-based utility’s other reactor, in Monticello, Minn., also is getting a $600 million upgrade that aims to keep it running safely and boost its output by nearly 13 percent.

TEPCO sued over deaths of elderly patients during Fukushima evacuation
Noriko Abe is demanding answers over the death of her 98-year-old father-in-law who was forced to take a 230-kilometer bus trip lasting more than eight hours in the confusion following the Fukushima nuclear accident.

Dozens of hospital patients died during the arduous evacuation process, which was hampered by poor communications, a lack of manpower and the sheer chaos in the aftermath of two natural disasters. At least one medical worker said decisions made during the evacuation likely exacerbated the situation for the frail patients.

Abe and the families of three other patients at Futaba Hospital who died in the evacuation process filed a lawsuit at the Tokyo District Court on June 10, seeking a total of about 130 million yen ($1.3 million) in compensation from Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

The patients’ ages ranged from 62 to 98 when they died.

“This is not an issue about money,” Abe, 71, said. “I want the court to clarify the reasons our father had to die and for TEPCO to apologize.”

Abe to respect NRA judgement for reactor restarts

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says the government will follow what the Nuclear Regulation Authority says in regards to approving restarts of nuclear reactors.

Some Japanese power companies are set to apply for the restart of their idled reactors as the country's regulator is expected on Wednesday to implement a strict set of rules to address severe accidents.

Abe said safety will be the top priority. He said that the government will let the authority decide.

TEPCO to increase groundwater testing

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant says it will increase checks for strontium and tritium in groundwater near the damaged reactors.

Tokyo Electric Power Company workers detected the radioactive materials in groundwater taken from an observation well on the sea side of the No.2 reactor building. Company officials say they found no major changes in radiation levels in nearby seawater.

But they plan to set up more monitoring posts and observation wells. And they will reinforce nearby embankments to prevent contaminated groundwater reaching the sea.

Plant operators will be obliged to take concrete steps to deal with serious accidents. Until now, such action was voluntary.

Power companies will also be required to draw up emergency scenarios for bigger earthquakes and tsunami.

So long, San Onofre (in like 700 million years)

So there the disabled behemoth sits, awaiting a decommissioning project that will continue for decades, requiring continued regulatory oversight and inspiring never-ending debates about who should pay and how much. Edison has a $2.7 billion fund saved just for this purpose, but history shows these projects never go smoothly. The Unit 1 reactor, which was shut down in 1992, was supposed to be boxed up and shipped to a repository in South Carolina, but no one could figure out how to transport a 770-ton bundle of radioactive junk across the country. Instead, it remains where it is, encased in concrete, waiting for the transmutation of the elements to complete its ten-thousand-million-year-long conversion from deadly isotopes to stable lead. We won't be free of it anytime soon.

Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
Thanks to the wonders of the real-time social media age, celebrity watchers the world over have been able to enjoy every second of Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy in excruciating detail. From her obvious disdain for her pregnant body to her sudden enthusiasm for eating her own placenta to maintain her youthfulness, it’s all been put out for the world to see.

But this article isn’t as much about Kim K, as it is the blatant disregard for the health of her baby. Not only on the part of Kim and her family, but even her own now-famous obstetrician that has appeared several times on her reality show.

The amount of flying Kardashian did while pregnant has been glaringly obvious to the radiation researcher. All this flying didn’t even register as a blip with her clueless doctor as we now know, from yesterday’s episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians: Season 8“. Instead, he just stroked her ego and managed his TV presence, while he should have been concerned with the health of her child in light of a severe stomach infection which occurred during a transatlantic flight, one of many Kim made during her much-publicized pregnancy.

The latest word on the Kardashian/West baby is that it was delivered 5 weeks prematurely and severely underweight, following the discovery of another massive infection with Kim and was placed in neonatal intensive care.

Despite hundreds of tweets and updates from the family since the birth, the only information being shared is that “It’s a girl” and “It’s a miracle”. Even Larry Hackett, Managing Editor of People Magazine exclaimed somewhat disappointedly during Good Morning America, “It’s been strangely quiet on Planet K”.

Premature birth is nothing new, especially since the meltdowns of 3 nuclear reactors in Japan, in March of 2011. Three nuclear meltdowns that is, which have never been contained. In fact, a peer-reviewed scientific study showed that miscarriages and premature births skyrocketed in the months after 3/11. So did maternal deaths, where both the mother and baby die unexpectedly.

Mainstream media, eager to push the Angelina Jolie elective mastectomy and Kardashian’s weight gain, has neglected this study as well as a more recent one, showing infants on the west coast of North America have suffered negative health effects since the Fukushima meltdowns as well. Considering the companies that own the mainstream media also make nuclear reactors, that really comes as no surprise.

But what is a surprise is a huge radioactive fallout cloud, called a “plume” has circled the earth every 40 days since the beginning of the accident. This was reported from yet another peer-reviewed scientific study, this time out of Japan. And this has been going on 2 years.

This new plume is in addition to leftovers from atmospheric testing, depleted uranium (DU) that we have used in Iraq and Afghanistan that has made its way back into our weather systems, and the continuous radioactive emissions that come out of the normal operations of 400+ nuke plants in the northern hemisphere.

But the Fukushima plume has been a game changer, except no one really told us that the game had changed. Unless, of course, you have turned off the reality shows to pay attention and come out of the virtually extinct instinct for one’s own sense of self-preservation.

No, it is us as a Society like you, ploerb and all the other Fraggles + me (of course)

We let this happened and we do not even stop them even now,
because we are not smart enough and cant provide a Alternative Solution!

It is very easy to blame someone else, or in this case our Friends of Tepco
but we tolerate-d this and this is punishable!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 41630433


Now, you know I meant in Japan.

The world situation is a separate issue.

I blame Tepco for what they did and continue to do.

- ignoring their own scientists who said the tsunami walls were too low

- lying to their own people about the meltdowns

- with holding the SPEEDI system to warn civilians of the plume direction and evacuation routes

- continuing to lie about the contamination... as illustrated by the recent attempt to dump radioactive water

etc. etc.
