South Korean reactor in trouble?

The government says all good, but the net users reject that

 

The original source is Record China, and it was translated into Japanese and appeared here:

http://www.excite.co.jp/News/chn_soc/20161022/Recordchina_20161022013.html

 

"A small hole was found inside the HANBI nuclear power plant 2 number machine facilities located in Korea southwest bank and Jeonra Nam Do spiritual light district according to Korea and union news on October 21, 2016, but it became clear that there were no radiation leaks fortunately."

 

The netizens in South Korea are totally not believing in the shared info, as the government stating"it's gonna be all ok, no radiation leak from the hole!"...

 

They are saying "For how long did they leave it for a 6mm thickness iron wall to get a hole through!?" and "There's a hole exposed and still no radiation!??" etc....

Greenland's receding icecap to expose top-secret US nuclear project

 

Top-secret US military project from the cold war and the toxic waste it conceals, thought to have been buried forever beneath the Greenland icecap, are likely to be uncovered by rising temperatures within decades, scientists have said.

 

The US army engineering corps excavated Camp Century in 1959 around 200km (124 miles) from the coast of Greenland, which was then a county of Denmark.

 

Powered, remarkably, by the world’s first mobile nuclear generator and known as “the city under the ice”, the camp’s three-kilometre network of tunnels, eight metres beneath the ice, housed laboratories, a shop, a hospital, a cinema, a chapel and accommodation for as many as 200 soldiers.

After Leaking Radiation In New York For DECADES, Indian Point “Ticking Time Bomb” To Finally Close

Jan. 14, 2017     Claire Bernish

"Buchanan, NY — Intensely controversial Indian Point nuclear power plant will completely cease operations by 2021, but the move to shutter operations on the facility — located just 25 miles north of New York City — has itself stirred contention.

Legal and environmental battles have raged for years over Indian Point, which supplies nearly one-third of the energy generation for the metropolis and has — in recent times, at least, officially — one of the best track records of any nuclear plant in the U.S.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has for years fought to shut down Indian Point — which he has called a “ticking time bomb” — both for its proximity to a sprawling urban populace and for the plant’s disputable safety record. Announcing the coming closure, Cuomo stated this week,

"For 15 years, I have been deeply concerned by the continuing safety violations at Indian Point, especially given its location in the largest and most densely populated metropolitan region in the country. I am proud to have secured this agreement with Entergy to responsibly close the facility 14 years ahead of schedule to protect the safety of all New Yorkers. This administration has been aggressively pursuing and incentivizing the development of clean, reliable energy, and the state is fully prepared to replace the power generated by the plant at a negligible cost to ratepayers."

Wind power will be the governor’s primary focus, but that sufficient clean energy infrastructure to replace the two gigawatts of power produced at Indian Point isn’t yet in place has brought the eminent shuttering of the nuclear facility into question by both the industry and, surprisingly, even some environmental advocates."

I'm wondering if all these reactor problems (apart from breakdowns caused by age and /or poor design)are a  subtle version of the Samson Option.The reactor problem in Oslo, Norway, where T lives I thin k, strikes me as being a bit unusual .

Being practical I've listened to both a William Mount and a Cliff High video recently in which they both agree kelp is an important counter to radiation poisoning,

Mount" kelp contains a suracant which protects: I had been thinking that the iodine in kelp would have picked up the radiation and been countereffective, so the kelp I'm currently taken is from the coast of NZ, probably not perfexct but will have to do.

High mentioned, miso (with kelp), as does Mount, and also Holy/Royal/indian Basil  as a tea, taken with milk or water using Ayurvedic principles, which also included Asyana yoga.

High's account is that one particular very authoritarian boss insisted the workers drank miso, and they were found to be virtually unaffected by the radiation in comparison with other teams

High states the Indian texts are the result of the ancient nuclear war in the area, and the knweldege acquired to dela with the aftermath.

Mount mentioned strange jellyfish in the North Pacific area, which may be mutant or from off planet which he thinks are cleaning the ocean.I hope so.

Also lightning as a cleanser: I have no idea how to track this down , but several years ago I read an article in New Scientist about spent fuel rods, which are still highly radioactive being rendered harmless by electrical current.

I've not seen ant mention of this anywhere else as a possible solution.

A massive harmless to humans and other life forms lightning storm at Fukushima and other locales?

Dozens of new cracks discovered at Belgian nuclear reactors

June 12, 2017

"The latest ultrasonic inspections have detected a substantial number of new micro cracks in nuclear reactors at the Tihange and Doel power plants in Belgium since the last study conducted three years ago, Belgian and German media report.

At least 70 additional cracks were uncovered at the Tihange 2 nuclear reactor during an ultrasonic inspection in April of this year, Belga news agency reports. Some 300 new flaws have also allegedly been discovered at the Doel 3 reactor tank during a check last November, according to tagesschau.de. 

snip   image/tweet

Belgian Interior Minister, Jan Jambon, confirmed the micro fissures at Tihange 2 following a parliamentary inquiry posed by Green Group leader Jean-Marc Nollet, DW reports. The reported new cracks at Doel 3 have not yet been confirmed. 

The cracks do not pose any danger to operations at the nuclear plants, says operator Engie-Electrabel, which carried out the inspections under instructions from the Belgian Atomic Regulatory Authority (FANC).

The operator said the new flaws were discovered due to a “different positioning of the ultrasound device.” Engie-Electrabel maintains that as long as cracks do not expand, they do not pose a danger to the reactor’s operations.

Branding Engie-Electrabel “irresponsible,” environmentalist group, Nucléaire Stop, has criticized the operator for still running Tihange 2 reactor despite a 2.22 percent increase in faults.

In February 2015, FANC said 3,149 cracks had been found at Tihange, while 13,047 were discovered at Doel. The operator must now submit additional analyzes of the situation by September.

Tihange lies only 60 kilometers (about 37 miles) from the German border, while Doel is 150 kilometers away, near Antwerp. Germans living in the area close to this border have been exerting pressure on the government to force Belgium to shut down the aging reactors."

This is NOT from the nuke plants, but still it is about radioactive substance fall out.

I haven't checked with my sources yet, but in fact it'd had been most likely due to someone's ship got blown up above our head.

Detection of Ruthenium 106 in France and in Europe: Results of IRSN’s investigations

"Ruthenium 106 has been detected in late September by several European networks involved in the monitoring of atmospheric radioactive contamination, at levels of a few milliBecquerels per cubic meter of air. IRSN's investigations make it possible to provide information on the possible location of the source of the release as well as the order of magnitude of the quantities released."

Uranium Leaked Through Floor of South Carolina Nuclear Plant

July 26, 2018            Olivia Rosane

 

"South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) officials said there was no reason to believe this leak left the the site of the Westinghouse plant or posed a threat to public drinking water, but state senator Darrell Jackson is calling for a public meeting to discuss the leak and other historic issues at the plant, The State further reported Wednesday.

"This is very disturbing," Jackson said. "This is one of the fears that those of us who grew up in that area, and lived in that area, have always talked about. I'm asking DHEC to get to Westinghouse officials and let's have a public meeting, not just with elected officials, but we need citizens there also.''

The company informed the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) of the leak July 12, which came through a hole in a part of the plant where acid is used. The hole was three inches and extended six feet into the ground, the NRC told The State.

The NRC found uranium levels in the soil of 4,000 parts per million, more than 1,000 times higher than average for soil.

"That's a lot, oh yeah," U.S. Geological Survey scientist Frank Chapelle told The State.

The company has covered the hole with a metal plate and said it would not use the area until it was completely repaired."

Floods limit access to Duke’s Brunswick nuclear plant; crews use porta-potties, cots

John  Murowski          Sept. 17, 2018

 

"Flooding resulting from Tropical Storm Florence has left Duke Energy’s Brunswick nuclear plant with limited access to the 1,200-acre complex about 30 miles south of Wilmington.

The plant has declared an “unusual event,” the lowest level of nuclear emergency, as required by Nuclear Regulatory Commission, said NRC spokesman Joey Ledford.

According to a filing listed on the NRC web site, “A hazardous event has resulted in on site conditions sufficient to prohibit the plant staff from accessing the site via personal vehicles due to flooding of local roads by Tropical Storm Florence.”

UNUSUAL EVENT DUE TO SITE CONDITIONS PREVENTING PLANT ACCESS

"A hazardous event has resulted in on site conditions sufficient to prohibit the plant staff from accessing the site via personal vehicles due to flooding of local roads by Tropical Storm Florence."

Notified DHS SWO, FEMA OPS, and DHS NICC. Notified FEMA NWC, NuclearSSA, and FEMA NRCC via email.

It's being said that there are many conflicting reports as to the level of  seriousness this is.
