EDF Underestimated Radioactivity in Deadly Waste-Site Explosion

Electricite de France SA, Europe’s biggest power producer, underestimated radioactivity levels in a furnace that exploded at a waste-processing site this month, killing one and injuring four, the nuclear watchdog said.

The watchdog had previously sought safety improvements at the facility, while allowing it to continue to operate.

Some 4 metric tons of metal with 30 million becquerels of radioactivity was in the melting furnace of the plant at the time of the accident, it said. The operator had initially said the level of radioactivity was 63,000 becquerels.

- that is a huge difference. Did they learn that trick from Tepco or is it standard operating procedure for the nukesters?
