Nervous About Brussles Tihange 2 Nuke Plant – 370 CRACKS reported as “70”

Nuke Pro Nuclear Plant In Belgium At Risk of a Large Scale Meltdown — Could Happen any Time

New cracks found in Tihange 2 Belgian nuclear power plant – Deutsche Welle

“Seventy new micro-cracks have been discovered in the high-pressure boiler at the aging Tihange 2 nuclear reactor in Belgium, since the last inspection in 2014.

Experts using ultrasonic technology found the new cracks after positioning the camera in a different direction . . . “

What’s with this “micro-crack” fig leaf? Since th contamination threat is atom sized and the crack isn’t sub-atomic it can’t be called a micro-crack. It’s a crack. 70 cracks.

OH!  They LEFT OUT 300 OTHER CRACKS!

Translated:

370 new cracks in Tihange 2 and Doel 3

THE BELGIAN NUCLEAR REGULATOR FANC HAS RECORDED 370 NEW CRACKS IN THE BELGIAN INHABITANTS TIHANGE 2 AND DOEL 3. IN THE ULTRASONIC TESTS CARRIED OUT IN THE AIRFIELD OF AACHEN, WHICH IS ONLY 60 KILOMETERS FROM AACHEN, 70 CRACKS WERE RECORDED WHICH WERE NOT PREVIOUSLY KNOWN, AND 300 IN DOEL NEAR ANTWERP.

RTDozens of new cracks discovered at Belgian nuclear reactors

” . . . 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.”  <– how would they know??? They waited 3 years to do this inspection”. Next one is . . . . when???

“The question is no longer whether we are for or against nuclear power, the question is what do we do today, in an emergency?”

On June 25, 2017, the trinational alliance Stop Tihange (Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium) organized a large 90 km human chain between Liège and Aachen, via Maastricht. Bouli Lanners, actor and director, encourages everyone to participate! Our power stations are old and damaged, stop prolonging them and put us in danger! React and participate in the Human Channel on Sunday 25th June at 2pm! Register on http://www.reaction-en-chaine-tihange.eu  (translated)

It has to do with resolution of testing device and how they count flaws. Initially they thought few and then found many many more. Similar case: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2016/07/06/why-a-nuclear-reactor-with-almost-1000-pressure-vessel-flaws-may-still-re-open-near-zurich-a-lesson-in-myopic-accounting/
