Tepco "Explains" Plumes Of Smoke Above Exploded Fukushima Reactor 3

Tyler Durden's picture





 

In the past two weeks there was significant speculation that the Fukushima catastrophe was once again rapidly escalating after plumes of mysterious smoke were detected above the destroyed Reactor 3 - the one with a mixed MOX and uranium fuel core. RT described it as follows:

Fresh plumes of most probably radioactive steam have been detected rising from the reactor 3 building at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, said the facility’s operator company.

 

The steam has been detected by surveillance cameras and appeared to be coming from the fifth floor of the mostly-destroyed building housing crippled reactor 3, according to Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO), the plant’s operator.

 

The steam was first spotted on December 19 for a short period of time, then again on December 24, 25, 27, according to a report TEPCO published on its website.

 

The company, responsible for the cleanup of the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl, has not explained the source of the steam or the reason it is rising from the reactor building. High levels of radiation have complicated entry into the building and further inspection of the situation.

Naturally, fears arose that more uncontrolled meltdowns were in process at the exploded reactor.

This morning, probably in order to assuage fears that it has lost control more than usual, TEPCO released the following statement "Regarding Certain Overseas Reports on Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station." TEPCO's soothing words - "We found no abnormalities in the measured values (indicating the temperature and condition of the Reactor Building), or in the value of the monitoring post (monitoring the amount of radiation), even when the steam-like gas was being generated, therefore we are certain that there has been no influence on the outside. In addition, we measured the amount of radiation at the point from which steam-like gas was generated, and found that its amount was almost the same as for the other neighboring points."

And as everyone knows by now, TEPCO would never lie. Finally, the question of why TEPCO would issue a press release to respond to "media rumors" is an open one.

Full statement from the semi-nationalized company:

Regarding Certain Overseas Reports on Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station

Some overseas press outlets are reporting that steam is being generated from Unit 3 at Fukushima Daiichi NPS and its condition is dangerous, releasing radioactive material, and that there were two underground nuclear explosions at the site. However, such information is incorrect, and we have found no change in the status of the plant.

Steam generation on the operating floor at Unit 3, and the detection of highly concentrated radioactive material at groundwater observation holes etc., have been pointed out as the basis for the overseas reports. We respond to these as follows.

- Steam-like gas generated on the operating floor at Unit 3 in Fukushima Daiichi NPS

Since July 2013, steam-like gas has been intermittently observed on the operating floor at Unit 3. The steam-like gas is estimated to emerge via the following sequence.
1) Accumulated hygroscopic moisture, such as rainwater, exists below the shield plug (a lid made of concrete).
2) The hygroscopic moisture is heated by the heat radiated from the top of the Primary Containment Vessel (PCV).
3) The heated hygroscopic moisture is released onto the operating floor via the gap of the shield plug.
4) The released moisture is cooled down by the cool atmosphere, giving it the appearance of a steam-like gas.

We found no abnormalities in the measured values (indicating the temperature and condition of the Reactor Building), or in the value of the monitoring post (monitoring the amount of radiation), even when the steam-like gas was being generated, therefore we are certain that there has been no influence on the outside.
In addition, we measured the amount of radiation at the point from which steam-like gas was generated, and found that its amount was almost the same as for the other neighboring points.

 

- Highly-concentrated radioactive material found at the observation holes

We have been monitoring the groundwater sampled at the observation holes established to investigate the contamination status of groundwater, for the purpose of investigating the effects of the leak of contaminated water from the contaminated water storage tanks in August 2013. At the end of 2013, the measurement value for Tritium, one of the radioactive materials in the water sampled at the observation hole near the tank that suffered leakage, increased from 34,000Bq/L (on December 28) to 450,000Bq/L (on January 1). This increase in the value could be attributed to 1) the contaminated water that previously leaked from the tank soaking into the nearby ground, or 2) the effects of the water pumping* (*we have been pumping up the contaminated groundwater at the nearby observation holes, however the amount being pumped up was temporarily decreased at the end of 2013). The value decreased to 17,000Bq/L on January 8. Highly concentrated tritium (almost equivalent concentration level) was found in this observation hole in the past, and the highest concentrated tritium 790,000Bq/L was also found here on October 17, 2013.

- Earthquake on December 31, 2013

Some overseas press outlets reported that underground nuclear explosions caused several quakes with magnitudes of 5.1 and 3.6.
According to the Japanese Meteorological Agency, 13 earthquakes (with a maximum magnitude of 5.4) occurred and originated in the north part of Ibaraki Prefecture on December 31 2013. None of these earthquakes was caused by Fukushima Daiichi NPS. We also found no accidents or trouble etc. in Fukushima Daiichi NPS.

The comments to this post leave me a little concerned, bordering on yahoo news quality. The real fact of the matter is this disaster is many multiples worse than being reported. Taking the time to digest the massive amount of info reported at these two sites might be worth it, at least to anyone who doesn't come on here and just post sarc.

Good Sarc Wisehiney - My wife's brother was a doc in Vietam and several years after returnng home from two tours, during which he was sprayed regularly with Agent Orange PLUS whatever other stuff the mad chemists of Monsanto were experimenting with, he self-diagnosed with M.S. His VA claim was,of course, turned down. So the whole family - lawyers, accountants, librarians etc got to work and we managed to assemble a portfolio of evidence that included internal memos from Monsanto that proved conclusively that they knew Agent Orange (+) was going to kill American troops. So my father-in-law, a high-powered lawyer, took the evidence to DC and, using his considerable clout, managed to sit down with DOD and Monsanto lawyers and laid out the evidence. Without any hesiaton an offer was made - we'll approve a substantial settlement for your son, plus guarantee all his medical bills, plus pay his widow a nice pension, but the deal is that all this paperwork stays with us and nobody in your family ever says a word. The deal was done, the evidence was buried, my brother-in-law died in a few years, and that was that.

If this happened once it must have happened a thousand times. Monsanto is no different from I.G. Farben - both are war criminal entities.

Those assholes should tell us quite a bit more than readings of Tritium levels. If this steam derives from criticality, there'd have to be a very notable spike in Iodine 131 release. And it would be very interesting to get readings about fission products, like Strontium and Cesium, and heavy transuranics, like Plutonium. The more TEPCO admits - the more they lie to us!

1986 Chernobyl – 195 days till containment. A single uranium powered nuclear plant without plutonium (MOX) fuel and NO spent fuel pools, located far from any ocean in the middle of what was then the Soviet Socialist Republic of Ukraine was running at low power had a partial meltdown, exploded and burned for ten days until an army of half a million “liquidators” buried it and entombed it in a concrete sarcophagus. It sent a plume of radioactive particles 2 kilometers into the atmosphere – equivalent in toxicity to 400 Hiroshima bombs. It contaminated forty percent of Europe and Central Asia. A thousand kilometers in all directions are permanently contaminated. It has slowly killed a million people and destroyed the DNA of millions more.

vs

2011 Fukushima – 1034 days still no containment. Three uranium and plutonium powered nuclear plants and four large spent fuel pools, located on the shores of Eastern Japan were running at full power, had triple "China Syndrome" meltdowns, exploded and two hundred tons of radioactive fuel burned up into the atmosphere and burned down into the groundwater aquifer that empties into the Pacific Ocean. For over two and a half years an army of ten thousand down on their luck contract workers have tried to mop it up and then filter and save the mop water. It didn’t work. It can never be stopped. It sent a plume of radioactive particles 5 kilometers into the atmosphere – equivalent in toxicity to 6000+ Hiroshima bombs. It has permanently contaminated 50 percent of Japan and portions of East Asia. Three thousand square kilometers of the Pacific and growing are permanently contaminated. It has begun to slowly kill millions of people in the northern hemisphere and destroy the DNA of billions more for generations to come.

NRC says they were the purchasers of 14M Potassium Iodide (KI) I had a few questions for the NRC concerning their roundabout purchase of 14 million Potassium Iodide tablets.

I suggest you drop in an ask your own questions, maybe Libbe could interview them on the Hot Seat, that would be fun.

At an Alaska test site, Fukushima created the same level of nuclides from 2000 miles away, as a real large atomic bomb at ground zero.  

Hard to believe, full on truth, and comes from a 300 page report by US Gov in summer of 2011.

From early videos, here are screen captures showing MOX and experimental fuels laying raw on top the rubble.

This truth is plain as these pro nuke type now claim that there was no release of uranium or plutonium.   Wow.

Fukushima 4 was not a hydrogen explosion, nor was Reactor 3, they were a type of nuclear explosion... on 3 you saw the video.   4 had a huge fire and blew up the next day....and they covered up the video, apparently destroyed it because it never surfaced.

Cue Ann Coultergeist:  “There is a growing body of evidence that radiation in excess of what the government says is actually good for you and actually reduces cancer.”

Give me a break. When the meltdowns where happening UC Berkeley published fallout reports every day. If we where getting major fallout again we'd see groups like UCB who actually know nuclear safety saying something. 

People walk around with gieger counters, find some mildly radioactive minerals and then decide its Fukushima.

Uh, where do you think they get a good amount of funding from....US Gov, which gave japan the BP playbook.
