Emergency shutdown at Ukraine’s largest nuclear power plant

Dec. 28, 2014

 

 

post-5-0-24503300-1419829851_thumb.jpg

 

 

"One of the reactors at the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant was automatically shut down after a glitch. This was the second halt in operations in recent weeks at the plant in Ukraine’s southeast, which covers at least one fifth of the country’s power needs.

“Unit 6 at Zaporizhzhya NPP was disconnected from the network by the automatic system that prevents damage to the generator. The reactor is running at 40 percent of nominal power,” the plant’s official website says stressing that radiation at the facility is equal to the natural background, which is 8-12 microroentgen/hour.

This accident took place on Sunday morning at 05:59 am local time (03:59 GMT). Causes are still being investigated, while the Energy Ministry hopes to restart the unit in the coming days. The remaining five reactors continue to generate an estimated 4,530 MW.

Late on Sunday, the problem had been fixed and the power plant’s sixth power block had been plugged back into the network, the plant said on its website.

"Unit №6 was plugged back in after an error was corrected...At this moment all six power blocks are working,” the statement said.

The previous incident at Zaporizhia NPP happened on November 28, but the fact went public five days later, when Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk revealed it during the first session of his new cabinet."

Apparently a transformer about 100 meters from a reactor blew and nothing was involved with the reactor.  We should maybe pay attention to whether there is an increase in the number of transformer failures as CERN continues to crank up. I hope not because the transformer for my area is notoriously unreliable (though it has been pretty stable lately).

 


 

Explosion, smoke at Indian Point nuclear plant north of NYC

RT
Published time: May 09, 2015 23:14
Edited time: May 10, 2015 00:03

 

 

Reports of loud blast at the Indian Point nuclear plant, 38 miles (61 km) north of New York, emerged following a transformer failure, and smoke could be seen rising from the facility. The authorities assure the emergency caused no threat to public safety.

Unit 3 of the nuclear plant, which is located on the east bank of the Hudson River, was automatically shut down following Saturday’s accident, the plant’s operator Entergy Corp has said.

 

According to the company, the nuclear reactor was not damaged and there was no threat to public safety at any time.”

Kawauchi Nuclear Power Plant Problem: Sea water contaminated the Coolant and Stopped Boosting Production & Only about 50km away from Sakura Jima-Island that's to blow up any time

 

Source: http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20150821-00000520-san-soci

Well, basically as is in the title.

 

Apparently the coolant seems to be contaminated by sea water somehow and though they just restarted generating energy but now have to stop boosting production and see what's up.

 

There was 16 cm slide on ground found on Sakura Jima just yesterday, found by JAXA.

There was a small eruption but geologists there are saying that the rise of magma seized, but it may well meaning that it's just getting ready to blow up in any moment, in really big way. The eruption may gut out 2/3 of the island...

Nuclear Event in United States of America on December 06 2015 05:07 AM (UTC).

 

"An investigation has been launched after an incident occurred at the Indian Point Energy Center near New York City, state officials say, but there is no threat to the public. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said a power loss to several control rods occurred at the Indian Point Nuclear Facility on early Saturday evening, forcing the Unit 2 reactor to be shut down. Other details were not immediately available, but authorities said there is no public health threat as a result of the incident. "The company reports that there was no radioactivity released to the environment," Cuomo said in an emailed statement. "I have directed the Department of Public Service to investigate and monitor the situation and a team is currently en route to Indian Point to begin its work." Other details were not yet available. Indian Point Energy Center has a generating capacity of more than 2,000 megawatts and provides enough power to light about 2 million homes, thousands of businesses and hundreds of critical transportation, health and municipal systems. The power is distributed to the Con Edison system, which serves more than 3 million customers in the five boroughs of New York City and Westchester County."

Unplanned shutdown of reactor at Torness nuclear power plant  << Scotland

December 14, 2015

 

 

123919-gv-of-torness-power-station-east-

 

Power: It is not clear when the reactor will restart.  SWINS group

 

"There has been an unplanned shutdown of one of the reactors at Torness nuclear power station in East Lothian.

 

Operators EDF energy have not indicated when Reactor 2 will return to service after the unit "tripped" on Monday. This refers to the reactor being rapidly shut down by the insertion of its control rods.

The company said the cause of the incident is under investigation. 

Torness station, 33 miles east of Edinburgh, generates enough electricity to power more than two million homes. "

EMERGENCY AT LENINGRAD NUCLEAR POWER PLANT: RADIATION LEAKING INTO ATMOSPHERE

December 19, 2015

 

"A steam pipe has cracked at the Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant in Russia and is venting radioactive steam into the atmosphere.  The radiation is blowing toward southeast Finland.


 "The accident occurred at the second power unit when a pipe with steam cracked in turbine hall yesterday. The steam filled the room, and leaked beyond the power plant. The employees of the Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant (LNPP) had to go home. The second unit was stopped manually, Ekho Moskvy reports. 

According to specialists, the release was radioactive, because the waste steam entered the so-called loop reactor coolant. 

 East wind is carrying a radiation cloud west, in the direction of Tallinn, Estonia and Helsinki, Finland as shown on the map below"

65,000% Spike In Reported Radioactivity After Tritium Leaks At Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant

 

Two years after being fined for falsifying safety records, nine months after a transformer exploded at the Indian Point Nuclear Reactor just 37 miles from midtown Manhattan, and two months after Entergy - the plant's operator - shut down the Unit 2 reactor after a major power outage cut power to several control rods (when the company assured that no radioactivity was released into the environment), this afternoon NY Governor Andrew Cuomo said he learned that "radioactive tritium-contaminated water" had leaked into the groundwater at the nuclear facility in Westchester County.

 

Cuomo, in a letter Saturday to the state Health Department and the Department of Environmental Conservation, called for the probe into the Indian Point NPP after he said Entergy, the plant's owner, reported "alarming levels of radioactivity" at three monitoring wells, with one well’s radioactivity increasing nearly 65,000 percent.

CBS: Radiation leak “getting worse” at nuclear plant near NYC — Levels increase over 120,000%, almost 15 million pCi/L — Governor: “Extremely disconcerting” — Expert: I don’t think they know where it’s coming from — Radioactive Antimony now being detected (VIDEO)

February 2, 2016

 

 

"NY Daily News, Feb 11, 2016 (emphasis added): Cuomo to launch probe into troubled Indian Point power plant as radioactive leak gets worse — The amount of radioactive tritium leaking from the Indian Point nuclear power plant is growing, officials said… New samples from groundwater monitoring wells show 80% higher concentrations of tritium compared with when the leak was first reported Saturday… Wednesday, [Cuomo] ordered a more sweeping investigation… “Last week the company reported alarming levels of radioactivity at three monitoring wells, with one well’s radioactivity increasing nearly 65,000%,” Cuomo said… “The news just keeps getting worse,” said Paul Gallay, president of the watchdog group Riverkeeper.

AP, Feb. 10, 2016: New testing has shown that the amount of tritium in the groundwater below the Indian Point power plant in Buchanan, New York, is about 740 times the amount allowed in drinking water… Entergy Corp., which operates the plant at the edge of the Hudson River, said Wednesday that the latest samples from monitoring wells found tritium at a level of 14.8 million picocuries per liter [up from 12,300 pCi/L, a 120,000% increase]. The [EPA] has set a limit of no more than 20,000 picocuries per liter in drinking water… [C]ritics of nuclear plants said the mere fact of the leak’s occurrence is cause for concern, partly because investigators had yet to pinpoint how it happened. “There a leak somewhere, and I don’t think they know where it is,” said Arnold Gundersen, a nuclear engineer and former industry executive… Gundersen said he was concerned that other, potentially more problematic elements could also have leaked out… [indian Point spokesman Jerry Nappi] said testing had also found elevated levels of antimony, at about 5,500 picocuries per liter… “It’s like an old car ready to fall apart“… said Assemblyman Tom Abinanti…"

Nuclear reactor shuts down over technical glitch

 

27th Feb 2016, South Korea

 

http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/news/2016/02/27/0200000000AEN20160227001100315.html?input=www.tweeter.com?2a5ac9c0

 

" A nuclear reactor in South Korea's southwestern nuclear complex temporarily stopped operation Saturday due to a technical glitch, an official said, but it does not pose any radiation risks."

 

Really...?

South Koreans checked on the radioactive levels of Seoul roads.

They were showing the asphalt used to cover the roads seem to contain radioactive substance...that had no place to go.....

The story was treated as an urban legend until someone really put the pics up on the net.

There was some news back in 2011 that the officials dug the road up and removed the radioactive bits and re-surfaced.

http://phys.org/news/2011-11-seoul-roads-repaved-radioactivity.html

http://www.news.com.au/world/radioactive-road-causes-headache/story-fn6sb9br-1226201943571

 

This is from 2013. 

"The dose of radiation of South Korean Seoul is 4.32 uSv per hour."

Bird Shit Caused the Indian Point Nuke Plant to Shut Down

 

ಠ_ಠ Not a laughing matter what so ever...

 

According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission concluded in Feb '16 that Indian Point Nuke Plant in NY, US shut down was due to the bird poos on the electric wires, causing the shut down on 14th Dec 2015.

 

The news appeared on Sputnik Japan, but I cannot find English article of it on the Eng site!!

Thanks for getting that Indian Point refertence unity-I was listening to a very recent  Richard Alan Miller interview a couple of days ago, and Indian Point, 20 miles from downtown New York was mentioned, as currently severely leaking.

The term, found on a US govt watch site was Level 4 (highest), later downgraded to a Level 2, and there were , from memory, on that particular day 11 sites at that level dispersed across the US.

I note this because the above posts mention places outside the US, mostly.

I've had a quick look around and all  I can find is this site which tells where the reactors are, but not their current state.

http://www.nrc.gov/info-finder/reactors/

This was the interview, and the site giving current hazard levels is mentioned (I haven't got sound here at the library).

Edit:

The actual broadcast I was thinking of.

the previous day to the broadcast DefCon 4 had been noted at several sites, described in the first few minutes of this video.

Japan and Europe are also covered at http://www.netc.com

Miami’s oceanfront nuclear power plant is leaking

March 8, 2016

Rob Wile

 

"What is arguably America’s least-well-placed nuclear power plant is leaking radiation into the sea.

 
The University of Miami has found that the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant, located just south of Miami, has caused levels of tritium, a radioactive isotope, in Biscayne Bay to spike to 200-times higher than normal levels.
 
“This is one of several things we were very worried about,” South Miami Mayor Philip Stoddard, who is also a biological sciences professor at Florida International University, told the Miami New Times. “You would have to work hard to find a worse place to put a nuclear plant, right between two national parks and subject to hurricanes and storm surge.”
 
Turkey Point came online in the early 1970s; it supplies power to more than one million homes in South Florida. The new study blames the leaks on the reactor’s cooling canals, which were recently found to have caused a massive underground saltwater plume to migrate west, threatening a wellfield that supplies drinking water to the Florida Keys.

New York City’s nuclear power plant leaking ‘uncontrollable radioactive flow’ into Hudson River

March 20, 2016

Patricia Elliott

 

 

Indian-Point-Nuclear-Plant-Radioactive-L

 

"New York governor Andrew Cuomo recently called for an investigation after Indian Point, a nuclear power plant on the Hudson River, reported a leak of radioactive material flowing into the groundwater. Now, new samples taken from the local groundwater show that contamination levels are 80% higher than previous samples, prompting experts to claim this leak is spreading in “a disaster waiting to happen” and calling for the plant to be shut down completely. The Indian Point nuclear power plant is located just 25 miles north of New York City, and it’s a crucial source of of power for over 23 million people living in the greater NYC metropolitan region. The location 25 mile north of NYC is a serious threat to the whole region, according to watchdog group Riverkeeper.

 
“It’s a disaster waiting to happen and it should be shut down,” Paul Gallay, president of Riverkeeper, told CBS News. Indian Point has been operating for around 40 years, and generates about 25 percent of the electric power for Westchester and New York City. The plant, owned by Entergy, is leaking tritium, a radioactive substance. Three of the forty Indian Point wells showed an increase in radioactive material, and one of the wells showed a 65,000 percent increase. Entergy states that this leak will not harm local inhabitants, as the groundwater is located on their property. John J. Kelly, former director of licensing for Indian Point and a certified healthy physicist, said that tritium is a radioactive form of hydrogen that is found naturally. “It’s more of a regulatory problem than an environmental problem,” said."

‘Catastrophic’: Up to 3,500 gallons of nuclear waste leak at Washington State storage site

 

Thousands of gallons of radioactive waste are estimated to have leaked at a Manhattan Project-era nuclear storage tank in Washington State over the weekend, triggering an alarm and causing one former worker to label it as “catastrophic."

 

The expanded leak was first detected after an alarm went off at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation on Sunday, and on Monday workers were preparing to pump the waste out of the troubled area, AP reported. They were also trying to determine why the leak became worse.

It’s unclear exactly how much waste spilled out, but estimates place the amount at somewhere between 3,000 and 3,500 gallons, according to the Tri-City Herald.

On the Brink of Disaster: Why Ukraine Is Preparing a Second Chernobyl

Translated by Ollie Richardson for Fort Russ

April 22, 2016

 

 

2-78.jpg

 

"Kiev authorities continue to follow the course of the rejection of everything Russian. And after food, gas (as it happens it is easier, although not cheaper, to get the reverse flow from Europe), and goods in daily demand, the country decided to not involve Russia in the implementation of joint projects in the nuclear energy sector.

 
Now they have decided to gamble on cooperation with Western companies, primarily American ones. It was decided to completely stop the previous contacts with Russian nuclear scientists, including critical facilities such as NPPs, which required professional maintenance.
 
Fuel from another continent
 
A few years ago, the Ukrainian leadership was talking about a possible transition from Russian nuclear fuel  shipped under US contracts. Back then, the idea of strong partnerships with overseas suppliers was tied to the narrow self-interests of lobbyists in Kiev. With the arrival of the openly Russophobic authorities, this theme has received new a development. In 2015, it became known that Westinghouse - an American energy giant - was embarking on the development of a large part of the Ukrainian nuclear power market.
 
Ukraine declared its readiness to accept fuel that will be loaded into unit #5 of the Zaporizhia NPP. Head of Westinghouse Danny Roderick, in an interview with Ukrainian media, spoke about the prospect of introducing the materials to all Ukrainian power units. For the implementation of this task, as was noted by Roderick, they will run a plant in Sweden, whose capacity is under-utilized."

This is What You Missed While the Media Distracted You With Bathrooms and Justin Bieber’s Hair

Three Separate Nuclear Disasters Loom Near Major U.S. Cities

 

On the outskirts of St. Louis, an underground inferno at a landfill will likely soon connect with an ineptly-handled, illegal nuclear waste dump dating back to the Manhattan Project — and not even scientists agree on what might happen when it does. But that isn’t the only concern. Site owners and government officials have issued multiple contradictory reports, but massive flooding at the beginning of 2016 revealed radioactive contamination leaching from the site — and that is has been doing so for the past 42 years.

 

West Lake Landfill became a federal Superfund site for cleanup of nuclear waste when placed on the National Priorities List in 1990 — but little progress has been made. In fact, the location was never intended to hold radioactive material. An inept contractor hired to handle the World War II-era byproduct from a uranium processing plant illegally dumped the radioactive residue at West Lake — over 100,000 tons of it. Proper lining or storage facilities were obviously not a concern when the material was originally left at the site, so not only has the product seeped into groundwater for years, but the exact boundaries for the radioactive waste have never been fully mapped.

 

Considering the unknown reach of the illegally-dumped nuclear byproduct, the approaching underground inferno in the neighboring standard landfill,  highly radioactive vegetation above ground — all in a heavily populated area — and the potential for catastrophe isn’t difficult to imagine.

“The stuff we’re talking about at West Lake is hotter than what you would find in a typical uranium mill tailings operation,” warned Robert Alvarez, Senior Scholar for the Institute of Policy Studies, in an interview on the report he co-authored concerning the impending potential disaster.

 

Near Miami, the ailing, decades-old Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Station has been spewing radioactive contamination into Biscayne Bay, near the Everglades — home to one of the planet’s largest coral reefs. A recent report revealed the hot, salty water has been creeping into the two parks and is fast approaching wells used to supply drinking water to residents in Miami and the Florida Keys.

 

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez commissioned the study, which found levels of radioactive tritium 215 times higher than that found in normal ocean water. Mayor of South Miami and biological sciences professor, Philip Stoddard, was cited by the Miami New Times saying, “You would have to work hard to find a worse place to put a nuclear plant, right between two national parks and subject to hurricanes and storm surge.”

 

Tritium, a hydrogen isotope, is itself a troubling discovery as it often acts as a precursor indication of leaks from nuclear power plants since it travels ‘faster’ than, and often precedes, other radioactive contaminants.

 

A third nuclear disaster looms in Buchanan, New York, in the Ramapo Fault Zone, just a half hour from the heart of New York City, at Indian Point Energy Center — where tritium levels sampled 65,000 percent higher than normal in February. According to Paul Blanch, an engineer with nearly five decades of experience in nuclear safety who has worked with Nuclear Regulatory Commission from its inception — and whom I’ve interviewed for Anti-Media on this topic — a convergence of multiple issues at Indian Point absolutely demand the entire country’s attention.

 

Slated for installation through the plant’s property is a high-pressure gas pipeline extension known as the Algonquin Incremental Market (AIM) Project — which, despite receiving the go-ahead from both the NRC and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, has never been fully or properly assessed for risk.

Blanche, who assured me he is a proponent of nuclear energy, confirmed what he previously told Truthout:

 

“I’ve had over 45 years of nuclear experience and [experience in] safety issues. I have never seen [a situation] that essentially puts 20 million residents at risk, plus the entire economics of the United States by making a large area surrounding Indian Point uninhabitable for generations. I’m not an alarmist and haven’t been known as an alarmist, but the possibility of [this] gas line interacting with [this] plant could easily cause a Fukushima type of release.”

 

As Blanche has repeatedly emphasized, the potential for catastrophe at Indian Point should be cause for serious concern for everyone located in the New York City metropolis and surrounding region, if not the entire country.

While not a Nuke plant problem, this radiation story has 2 relevant themes-

The distance traveled,

The Government coverup,

 

When Kodak Accidentally Discovered A-Bomb Testing

​At the start of the article...

"Two thousand miles away from the U.S. A-bomb tests in 1945, something weird was happening to Kodak's film."

and the end...

"Julian Webb knew this five decades earlier when he discovered traces of faraway weapons testing in America's water supply. Why no one told the American people remains a question today."
