Robot carries out survey inside Fukushima reactor

A remote-controlled robot with a 7-meter-long arm has carried out a survey inside a reactor building at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The newly developed robot is equipped with a camera and dosimeter on the tip of its arm. Its human operators worked from the building serving as the headquarters for the decommissioning work at the plant.

Tokyo Electric Power Company used the robot on Tuesday to investigate 6 locations near an interior ceiling of the Number 2 reactor.

Japan's regulators to allow 2 reactors to continue

Japan's nuclear regulators are expected to allow the only 2 reactors currently online in the country to continue operation.

The Nuclear Regulation Authority plans to submit a draft report on the 2 reactors at the Ohi power plant in Fukui Prefecture to a panel meeting on Thursday. The Authority has conducted inspections of the reactors since April based on a new set of stricter safety standards.
The new standards will take effect on July 8th. They require power companies to take concrete steps to deal with serious accidents.

Nuclear emergency response center opens

Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority has unveiled its new emergency response center.

The facility is designed to be an improvement on the old response center run by the authority's predecessor, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency. The agency's crisis response during the Fukushima accident was severely criticized.

On Thursday, media crews were invited to the 700-square-meter center in central Tokyo. It's 3 times the size of the old one and can accommodate 200 personnel.

In addition to real-time monitoring of the condition of the country's nuclear plants and radiation levels around them, the center is equipped with a video conference system.

Power companies hope for quick screening of nuclear plants

TOKYO — At least four utilities are expected to file for safety checks for up to 12 nuclear reactors as soon as the new regulatory standard kicks in next month.

Wednesday’s decision by the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) setting the launch date for the new requirement comes nearly two weeks ahead of the legal deadline, prompting critics to suspect industrial and political pressure so that utilities can start the procedure for restart as soon as possible.

More about the never ending story... Hanford...

Nuclear waste clean-up delayed and billions over budget

(CBS News) The new Secretary of Energy has been on the job only four weeks, but he made a beeline Wednesday to see his biggest headache for himself. Ernest Moniz went to the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington state.

Hanford made the plutonium for American nuclear weapons from the Manhattan Project in World War II until 1987. Now, highly radioactive waste is leaking, and a project to clean it up has stalled.

The clean-up at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation costs U.S. taxpayers $2 billion every year. This winter, engineers discovered six new leaks of radioactive material from underground tanks.

"There's something on the order of 1,000 gallons a year that are leaking now from these six tanks," says Washington Gov. Jay Inslee.

The government's clean-up plan involves pumping 56 million gallons of waste out of 177 tanks, mixing it with liquid glass and sealing it in canisters.

Residents say ‘death map’ should spur EPA action

GRANTS – A federal agency needs to either move the tailings from an abandoned uranium mill near Milan or relocate the owners of about 75 nearby homes, the residents told a top U.S. Environmental Protection Agency official on Tuesday.

Residents told Ron Curry, EPA’s Region 6 administrator, that a cluster of cancer cases in subdivisions near the Homestake Mining Co. uranium mill show a need for immediate action by the agency.

They pointed to a draft EPA report published this month showing that residents near the mill face a cancer risk 18 times higher than that considered acceptable by the EPA.

Curry met with homeowners on Tuesday at the home of Jonnie and Milt Head, who live about 2,000 feet southwest of a mile-long tailings pile left by milling operations at the site from 1958 to 1990.

At least 20 cases of cancer, including four deaths, and five cases of thyroid disease have occurred among residents who live within a mile of the sprawling Superfund site about 4.5 miles north of Milan.

Residents showed Curry a “death map” showing illnesses clustered in a small area just south and west of the site.

OINK: TV ad skewers Lindsey Graham's pork-barrel plutonium MOX boondoggle

WASHINGTON, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- If it walks like pork and sounds like pork -- even with a French accent -- it's probably pork.  And pork is what the Department of Energy's MOX Project is.
As a key House subcommittee takes up funding for the problem-plagued, budget-busting nuclear fuel program, Senator Lindsey Graham's obsessive support of the project at the Department of Energy's Savannah River site in his home state of South Carolina is being targeted in an off-beat, on-target TV ad from Friends of the Earth.

The House Energy and Water Subcommittee is this week discussing Department of Energy funding for the MOX Project, which would make nuclear reactor fuel from surplus weapons plutonium. The Obama Administration has requested a large cut to the program both this year and in later years, possibly terminating the project.  Friends of the Earth, Taxpayers for Common Sense and other environmental and public interest groups are campaigning for an end to MOX funding.

The cost of constructing a factory at the Savannah River site to make mixed uranium-plutonium oxide fuel, or MOX, from surplus weapons plutonium has soared from $1.6 billion in 2004 to $4.8 billion in 2008 to $7.7 billion today. Clements, co-author of an upcoming article on MOX in Arms Control Today, said there are rumors in the Energy Department that the cost could reach $10 billion.

In addition to being far over budget and more expensive than safer plutonium disposal options, there are no commercial nuclear reactors lined up to take any MOX fuel which might be produced if the plant can ever be finished or start up. MOX use in nuclear reactors makes the reactors harder to control and can contribute to higher radiation release in case of accident.

Moab, Utah: Beauty and the Nuclear Feast
[link to www.kcet.org]

snip


In 1956 the Uranium Reduction Company built a uranium milling plant to the immediate northwest of Moab, on a site along whose southern border the Colorado runs. Its central product was the infamous yellowcake concentration, and until the mid-1980s it processed an estimated 1400 tons a day. Sold exclusively to the Atomic Energy Commission until 1970, and subsequently to nuclear-power plants, Moab's uranium punched up the nation's Cold War nuclear stockpiles and lit up millions of homes and businesses in the American west.

The tailings made Moab glow -- and not in a good way. For nearly 30 years, the various companies that operated the facility dumped ton after ton of the radioactive sandy byproduct into an unlined impoundment area located 750 feet from the river. Over the decades, this Geiger-hot waste, which ultimately totaled 12 million cubic yards, was spread over 130 acres at a depth of more than 80 feet. According to the Department of Energy (DOE), which took over remediation of the site, the tailings "have an average radioactivity of 665 picocuries per gram of radium-226," and because the center of the monstrous pile has a "high water content...excess water in the pile drains into underlying soils, contaminating the ground water."

The report was also critical of the Bechtel Corporation, the contractor in charge of the project. "The scheduled completion date has slipped by nearly a decade to 2019," it said. And the cost has more than tripled to "$13.4 billion ... and could grow substantially."


Bechtel spokeswoman Suzanne Heaston gave us a tour, but not an explanation.

Asked who is at fault for the plant's failure to be up and running, she replies, "You'll talk to the Department of Energy about that."

But in the time it takes to come up with a new solution, Busche says, "Waste will be leaking into the ground water. It will continue to leak. It's an urgent problem that must be solved."

But engineers have to get this right. It will take 40 years to treat the waste, and during that time, radiation will make parts of the plant inaccessible to humans.

Poland may delay nuclear reactor operation

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk says his country may delay the planned operation of the country's first nuclear reactors. A major Japanese company is aiming to win a contract to build the units.

Tusk held a news conference in the capital Warsaw on Wednesday. He said he is not ruling out nuclear in Poland's energy mix, but it would be later than planned.

Tusk cited the high cost of building reactors and the ongoing domestic development of shale gas as reasons.

Constructing the reactors would cost about 15 billion dollars.

Breakwater completed for nuclear plant in Niigata

Tokyo Electric Power Company has unveiled a breakwater erected to prevent tsunami damage to a nuclear plant on the Japan Sea.

Seawalls are one of the requirements stipulated in safety guidelines approved by the country's nuclear regulator on Wednesday.

The safety guidelines will take effect in July. They oblige power companies to implement measures to address the possibility of serious accidents at nuclear plants.

On Thursday, TEPCO gave reporters access to the breakwater built for the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear plant in Niigata Prefecture. The utility started constructing the barrier 2 years ago.

The breakwater stands about 15 meters above sea level.

TEPCO reports new radioactive water leak at Fukushima

TOKYO — The tsunami-battered Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has suffered another radioactive water leak, its operator said Friday, the latest in a series of incidents at the crippled plant.

About 360 liters of tainted water leaked from a desalination unit although it did not escape from the complex, Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said.

The desalination unit removes salt from tainted seawater used to cool reactors that went into meltdown after a giant tsunami crashed into the plant in March 2011.

Monju operator skipped inspections of another 2,100 devices

The operator of the Monju prototype fast-breeder nuclear reactor said Friday it had skipped inspections of another 2,100 pieces of equipment, in the latest sign of its lax safety management.

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency was already found to have failed to conduct inspections at appropriate intervals on nearly 10,000 devices, leading nuclear regulators to issue an order in late May effectively prohibiting the Monju reactor from restarting until steps are taken to prevent a recurrence.

The JAEA, a national research institute, reported the latest blunders during a safety inspection carried out by the Nuclear Regulation Authority between June 3 and Friday.

FOCUS: Competition heating up in nuclear business in Asia

The Kori nuclear power site extending from Pusan to Ulsan is the center of the up-and-coming South Korean nuclear power industry. Below its observation deck loom into view eight nuclear reactor buildings. Construction of two more reactors will start soon.

Lee Jae Won, senior manager of the site, proudly pointed out brand-new dome-type Advanced Power Reactor 1400 reactors. "They were domestically produced and are now being constructed in the United Arab Emirates," he said.

In 2009, South Korea landed a $41 billion contract to export four APR 1400 reactors to the UAE together with operational skills and nuclear fuel. As France and Japan, two titans in the civil nuclear industry, were believed to have been ahead in the fierce competition for the contract, the Korean victory sent shock waves throughout the world.

Here it is...



[link to fukushima.over-blog.fr]
Andreas Küppers, a German geologist who had intervened on the site during the construction of the plant, was interviewed in March 2011 by the newspaper Die Welt. According to this specialist from the GeoSearch Center Potsdam (GFZ Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum), the different layers of argillite on which the plant is built are likely to be waterproof and should be able to prevent contact with groundwater (2). But this opinion is not shared by everyone. One dissenting Japanese geologist, for example, - who wishes to remain anonymous - has been noted for his views expressed on a U.S. forum, "Physics Forum": according to him, the bedrock of the region is made of coarse, very permeable sandstones, and contains vast amounts of water from the neighboring Abukuma mountain. This groundwater, he claims, is flowing under the plain towards the sea at a very low speed of about 50 cm / day (3).



In fact, in light of the collected data, it seems that the views of these two geologists may not be conflicting after all, because both types of layers do exist: argillite (or silt) and sandstone. However, Andreas Küppers, in line with Tepco's style of communicating, refrains from disclosing all the information he possesses: namely, that there is not only waterproof argillite, there are also some strata of permeable sandstone, which allows groundwater to move towards the sea. Moreover, the presence of this fault under the plant makes it possible for the water to sink down vertically without being stopped by a horizontal waterproof layer of argillite, and allows connection between several sheets of groundwater which one would have thought were independent.
