Fukushima Blows Lid Off Exploited Labour – nuclear workers castigated as ‘radiation- exposed people’
Posted:
The Fukushima disaster has thrown up the first opportunity in decades to bring justice to thousands of unskilled workers who risk radioactive contamination to keep Japan's nuclear power plants running. “Fukushima has created public awareness on a section of nuclear workers castigated as 'radiation- exposed people' but forming the dark underbelly of an industry that [...]

In Japan, City Radiation Inspectors Told NOT to Inspect Highest Potential Radiation Areas
Posted:
DATE, Japan—This sprawling city, 35 miles away from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi reactors, is leading the next phase of Japan’s struggles with radiation: deciding how to handle populations in contaminated communities where the level isn’t high enough to justify evacuation. Five months after a nuclear accident blew radioactive particles across the countryside, contamination in Date [...]

Fukushima Daiichi Dust Measurement Points

The Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant also known as Fukushima Dai-ichi(dai-ichi means “number one”), is a disabled nuclear power plant located on a 3.5-square-kilometre (860-acre) site in the towns of Okuma and Futaba in the Futaba District of Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. First commissioned in 1971, the plant consists of six boiling water reactors (BWR). These light water reactors drove electrical generators with a combined power of 4.7 GWe, making Fukushima Daiichi one of the 15 largest nuclear power [...]

Experts warn of dangers from radioactive waste swamps at Japan sewage plants


Environmental experts in Japan are warning of new fallout from the country's nuclear crisis.
Radioactive waste is piling up at several sewerage plants, well away from the crippled Fukushima reactor.
Months after the tsunami and earthquake that triggered the nuclear meltdown, the government still has no policy on what to do with the waste.

Cause of shutdown at North Anna nuclear plant sought - Post Earthquake Tour of Nuclear Power Station


Dominion Virginia Power officials are working to discover exactly what caused the North Anna nuclear reactors to trip off line in the Aug. 23 earthquake.

Knowing precisely what prompted the shutdown of the station's two 980-megawatt reactors is critical for validating the safety of the plant's design.

"We felt the shaking (in) the control room," said Unit 1 senior reactor operator Jason Russell, 30, of Henrico County. "I thought we may have ruptured a steam pipe in our turbine building."

Realizing that whatever was happening could affect the plant, Russell said, he immediately told his reactor operators to bring their reactor off line. "By the time the operators reached for the switches, the (automatic system) shutdown was already over."

Damage at the plant: cracks between concrete blocks in an administration building wall, a slight buckling in a corridor floor in that building, and damaged seals on some large electrical transformers.

Plant officials also said they found a horizontal crack in a non-safety-related wall of a room inside the Unit 1 reactor containment building.

The temblor also caused 25 of the 115-ton steel casks storing highly radioactive used nuclear-fuel rods to shift as much as 4½ inches out of position on their concrete storage pad.

Though the power company has not completed its analysis of the event, the earthquake apparently produced combinations of shaking forces larger than the plant was initially designed for, Stoddard said Friday.

North Anna's reactors remained out of service Friday as company officials continued detailed inspections of the station structures and systems. A Nuclear Regulatory Commission's augmented inspection team also is reviewing the effects of the earthquake. Stoddard said the final analysis is expected to be completed by the end of next week.

Utility officials had said earlier that electrical switches in the systems carrying power to the generating station had shaken open, signaling the reactors to trip. "We believe right now that was not the case," Stoddard said.

"There were multiple trip signals coming in," North Anna Site Vice President Larry Lane said. "We're talking about a difference of a second."

North Anna nuclear plant starts construction of 3rd Reactor Despite Not Receiving License and Current Increased Inspections


It will be another week before final analysis of North Anna’s “shake plates,” which recorded ground motion at the site, is finished, official says.

But Dominion expects to build the new plant. On Friday, bulldozers moved dirt in early preparations for the reactor’s containment building, designed to be sturdier than the existing structures. Company official Page Kemp said Dominion could receive a license for the reactor in 2013 or 2014.

Despite the upbeat picture painted of a nuclear plant that withstood the first earthquake-triggered shutdown in the 53-year history of commercial nuclear power in the United States, environmental groups have long questioned the wisdom of locating the plant in the Central Virginia Seismic Zone.

Regulators are also weighing in. After the Fukushima Daiichi disaster in Japan, the NRC ordered renewed study, now underway, of seismic risks to 27 U.S. nuclear plants, including North Anna.

“The power plant shouldn’t have been built there in first place,” said Lou Zeller of the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League, which is seeking to stop construction of a proposed third North Anna reactor. “Mother Nature has weighed in here.”

The group won a minor victory Thursday when the NRC’s Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel agreed to hear its objections to the third reactor.
