One of the key power generation system components of Unit 1 of Taishan nuclear power plant cracked during an earlier pre-production test, according to a report by FactWire News Agency.

“A ‘boiler’ in Unit 1 appeared to have cracked during functional testing and must be replaced, according to a nuclear plant employee,” the FactWire News Agency report reads.

“He also told FactWire undercover reporters when they visited the site last month that representatives from Harbin Electric, the Chinese manufacturer of the ‘boiler’, came to the plant for a week in late October to discuss with the plant operator, Taishan Nuclear Power Joint Venture, a plan to replace the faulty ‘boiler’,” according to FactWire.

Taishan Nuclear Power plant is being made by the joint venture between the China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN), which is a China state-owned company, and the French electricity company Électricité de France.

CGN, in a reply to Fact Wire News Agency, said “the Unit 1 of of Taishan nuclear power plant has already completed the cold functional and thermal functional tests. The test results were in line with design requirements. The deaerator is a common equipment of a conventional island thermal system, […] it does not belong to the nuclear safety related system.”

“China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN), the developer of the Taishan nuclear project, said on Tuesday afternoon that there were ‘partial defects’ in the welding of the deaerator in question, but insisted ‘replacement work was near completion’,” FactWire News Agency writes.

CGN’s official document says that the deaerator of Taishan Unit 1 is 46.6 meters long and 4.76 meters in diameter.

“Last week, a Dongfang Electric engineer also confirmed to FactWire that the deaerator was supplied by Harbin Electric and the welding on the deaerator was ‘problematic’,” the FactWire News Agency report reads.

Dongfang Electric is also co-responsible for manufacturing components for the Taishan nuclear power Unit 1.

The power plant is located 67 kilometers from Macau and 130 kilometers from Hong Kong, and is still under construction.

Safety concerns were raised last year after components of the nuclear plant were discovered to have been made in mainland China, not in France as previously thought.

According to FactWire, China had been hoping to launch Unit 1 this year, whereas French engineers who were sent to Taishan for the project, told FactWire that it could only be launched in 2018 at the earliest.

“The National Nuclear Safety Administration of China stipulates that a nuclear plant must seek permission from the agency before loading fuel assemblies to conduct tests. But public records show that Taishan Unit 1 has yet to have received such a permit,” FactWire reported.

Last year, members of the civil society had asked the MSAR government to clarify both issues related to the emergency plan and possible risks posed by the nuclear plant to Macau’s population. A local delegation visited the nuclear plant to check the safety of the infrastructure.

The head of the Security Forces Coordination Office, Choi Lai Hang, led the local delegation and explained that Macau would not require protective measures, even in the event of a very serious nuclear incident (level 7) at the Taishan nuclear power plant.

Bloomberg: [Tepco] crews prepared for strong winds and heavy rains at its wrecked Fukushima atomic plant […] The storm was skirting Japan’s eastern coast […] offshore wind speeds in Fukushima could reach 61 kilometers an hour, the JMA
said. […] The Fukushima Dai-Ichi station’s reactor buildings are strong enough to withstand storm winds and rains, [Tepco] said in an e-mailed statement. Equipment being used for the plant’s decommissioning was being secured ahead of the storm, the company said. Crews have also built high dams around storage tanks holding contaminated water as an extra precaution against leaks, site superintendent Akira Ono said in the statement.

AFP: The site’s operator said workers were bracing for the storm. “We are tying up cables and hoses… and making sure cranes and booms don’t fall,” a company spokesman said. “We will also beef up patrols in areas where water could flow in,” he said.

Kathryn Higley, head of Oregon St. Univ. nuclear engineering department: Radioactive Runoff[…] While the downpour may increase the amount of radioactive runoff from the plant into the ocean, it will be offset by dilution from off-shore rains […] “There may be a flushing of contaminated soils and sediments from rivers and streams out into the ocean, but I wouldn’t anticipate any increased dose effects,” Higley said in an e-mail.

AFP: A minor tsunami hit Japan’s Miyagi prefecture early on Saturday after a strong 6.8-magnitude quake jolted the northeastern Pacific coast, prompting advisories for regions including around the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant. A tsunami of 20 centimetres was observed at 5.12am local time in Ishinomaki, Miyagi prefecture, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. […] “We have not seen any damage or any change in radiation gauges after the quake,” said TEPCO spokesman Masahiro Asaoka. “Today’s operation has yet to start but we ordered workers to evacuate to high places,” Asaoka said. The meteorological agency advised people to leave the coast immediately, while Japan’s public broadcaster NHK said some local authorities had issued evacuation advisories.

Bloomberg: U.S. Navy is tracking a tropical depression about 689 kilometers east-southeast of Andersen Air Force Base on Guam. [Jim Andrews, a meteorologist with AccuWeather] said the depression may grow into a typhoon and move northward next week. He said Japan, China, Taiwan and South Korea should monitor its progress.

The Weather ChannelANOTHER Typhoon Threat Ahead? — Tropical Storm Nine is churning in the western Pacific Ocean, not far from where Super Typhoon Negouri first developed. […] a more ominous future may be in store. This system is expected to strengthen to a typhoon this weekend […] what will become Typhoon Rammasun (Thai for the God of thunder) is expected to continue intensifying, possibly rapidly, into early next week […] The key uncertainty in the track is whether the steering upper-level ridge of high pressure gives way to a weak southward dip in the jet stream […] that would bend Rammasun northward […]  It is far too early to determine the exact path of the storm. […] future Typhoon Rammasun may approach the northern or central Philippines by Wednesday, possibly as a strong typhoon.

Puzzling? Quake Hits Next to NYC Nuclear Plant?


http://enenews.com/

US/Canada

So, they claim puzzling?  Hell just last week, they said the same thing about the “Very strong quake” that hit the New Mexico border near the WIPP nuclear facility.  Puzzling?  That is a hell of a way to look at it.  Damn people, the globalists and the government have ganged up on the American people.  We are just a skip and a hop from extinction, and they call it puzzling when something happens, at a nuclear site.
CAN WE SAY HARP?  What do you think, we have a government, that claims by the year 2025 they will finally understand how to control the weather.  Till then, all hell will cut loose, while they extinct us, while they learn wtf they are doing!
Think about the WIPP site for a few minutes.  Ever since the “accident” first happened, the government has insisted that the little bit of radiation that escaped, could hurt no one.  That was what?  February?  Each month, they have let it slip that it was a little more than they first let on.  Last night, I posted where they have been releasing the hell out of plutonium and americium, on  a continuous basis.  I guess since no one has kicked over dead yet, they will just keep letting it escape, cause they claim that they don’t know what to do about it.
Sounds familiar.  I could have sworn that was the same thing that Tepco said about Fukushima, and that one is going to radiate the whole world.  Tepco could not figure out what to do, so they did nothing.  The worst disaster mankind will ever have to face.  But Wait!!!  Maybe no, the good ole USA might just step up to meet them.
Damn it, the Russians wasted no time on Chernobyl.  We have the Japanese sitting with their thumbs up their butts for three and a half years now.  3.5 Years, 40 months!?!  Now here we are, five months 5 months, almost half a year, and we cannot figure out what to do.  What?  Our scientists suddenly became brain dead?  The scientists have all turned into sheeple like the rest of the country?
So now, our stupid, irresponsible asses, have puzzling earthquakes at nuclear power plants, causing another catastrophe.  I guess no one can figure out that they need to turn the reactors off, and quit using the damned things.  We are not responsible enough to use nuclear anything.  I read and hear about people being “dumbed down”, but I had no idea that our scientists were getting dumber too.
Then we have Georgia Power Company/Southern Company building more nuclear plants, and we Georgians are paying for them right now, and they won’t even be in working conditions, or their power used in our areas, and we are forced to pay for the construction.
No!  We are nowhere near responsible enough to be playing with radiation.  We have already killed the Pacific Ocean.  Ok now, everyone think back to Grammer school.  What did they teach us?  That once the oceans die, we die.  Period.  Got that?  We are on the slow radiation death, a death that will extinct humans.
