Mid-Atlantic Ridge Jumpy

17 02 2015

While we watch these big quakes off Japan (ENE News report, Quake Watch report) and the 6.7 quake at the bottom of South America, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge is extra jumpy at the same time as Brazil tremors with 1.5-3M smaller quakes.

Earlier we posted about a series of large quake on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge in 2013.

The RSOE map doesn’t get the Brazil info but they have a good map of the ridge.

Looking At US Terrorism in Central Asia

15 01 2015

The false flag “attack” in Paris is quickly being revealed as another terrur hoax. SGT Report has a good examination of it –

FALSE FLAG 101: From Gladio To Hebdo — A SGT Report micro-doc

From the CIA-NATO run Operation Gladio, to 9/11 to the 7/7 bombings in London to Sandy Hook to Charlie Hebdo and most points in between, a majority of the terror events through which we suffer are planned and carried out by intelligence agencies and their minions. . . . (has video)

Ukraine’s Nukenado < Updated

31 12 2014

Nukenado_2

[ Newest items at the bottom. ]

On top of those melt downs at Fukushima there’s a big nuke emergency in Urkraine at one of the biggest nuke plants in the world. Not on US news, of course.

OLD NEWS:

Dec. 3 Fox Crawl - Ukraine’s Zaporizhia nuclear power plant crippled by accident that shut down reactor

An incident at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant in Ukraine has been kept secret by the authorities for five days. It happened on 28 November 2014, forcing one reactor to be shut down.

Dec. 4 – Energoatom says, “Nothing to look at here folks! Move along!”

Dec. 22 – The People’s VoiceUkraine a black hole of trouble. Running out of money.

” . . .  Exhausting its foreign exchange reserves. Economic crisis conditions worsening. At a time Fort Russ reports 15 Ukrainian nuclear reactors dangerously close to power loss. Disastrous if happens.
Ukraine can’t pay its bills. It’s running out of coal. Civil war continues. Economic collapse looms.
About half the country’s coal mines aren’t operating. Miners walked out. Left to protect their families and homes.
From “Kiev regime assaults.” Supply roads were destroyed. Stability keeps deteriorating.

If “reactors lose power, and generators don’t operate…uncontrollable temperature rises, explosions, meltdowns and meltthroughs will follow, said Fort Russ.
Like Fukushima. Maybe worse. Given the number of troubled reactors. Erupting spent fuel pools spell disaster. . . “

Dec. 26 – TASS - Ukraine to repair two units of Zaporizhia NPP in February < has tech. details

Dec. 31 – TASS –  Use of US nuclear fuel at Czech Republic’s Temelin NPP causes problems — experts

Europe advises its counterparts in other countries not to replace the nuclear fuel specifically designed for this type of reactors with unauthorized substitutes, the company ALTA said

NOW:

” . . .  Let us recall that one month ago, November 28, another emergency shutdown on Zaporozhye A-plant took place: it was power unit 3 with capacity of 1000 megawatt. “The unit was easily shifted into cold position. There were no radiological consequences”, — they said then at Energoatom.

That malfunction was the fourth emergency shutdown of power unit 3 at the most heavily loaded and exhausted A-plants of Ukraine. There are three power plants running in Ukraine now with 16 power units four of which are idle at the moment. . . “

” …. Strategy on creation of the centralized storage of the spent fuel. This fact defines necessity of estimation an storage opportunity of a new fuel after operation in reactor core;
 
The declared policy Euro integration. The process of licensing of new types of fuel
takes into account the recommendations IAEA, experience of the EC countries. For
an independent technical review the international organizations are involving.”

” . . . So far, the reactors were operating with fuel supplied by Russia’s Rosatom. But it seems that the clique of neo-Nazi and anti-Russian hysteria in power in Kiev has undertaken to replace the Russian fuel and to provide for Westinghouse (USA). One more sign, if necessary, submitting Ukrainian coup leaders to US interests.

But the transplant fuel supplied by Westinghouse on Russian design reactors seem to pose serious problems. It is reported more reactor stops (3 and 6) in recent days, and retirements grid. . . “

  • ZIK (west Ukraine cable tv conglomerate, started 2010) – Westinghouse springs into action with fake news report
  • Jan. 6 – See More Rocks blog - Mistake in reported radiation from Zaporozhia
    Please Note: The Radiation Reported in “leaked documents” from Zaporozhye / Zaporizhia NPP is NOT “5 mSv/year”, but 5 µSv/hr !!!  (RT mistranslation being spread widely) – that’s per HOUR(!)

More on Westinghouse fuel switch deal

“A U.S.-based [sic] energy company and Ukraine are on the verge of signing a deal that would lessen Russia’s influence and give the West greater leverage on the former Soviet republic.”

Dec. 31, 2014 -Westinghouse and Energoatom have agreed “to significantly increase” nuclear fuel deliveries to Ukrainian nuclear power plants until 2020.

In a statement yesterday, Westinghouse said this increased cooperation will bring diversification and security of nuclear fuel supplies for Ukraine’s reactor fleet

US-based Westinghouse, which is majority-owned by Japan’s Toshiba, has been working in the Ukrainian market since 2003. Its fuel is operating at the South Ukraine nuclear power plant “without any defects in performance”, Westinghouse said in the same statement. . . . “

” . . . Structural defects with the fuel assemblies have been identified resulting in mechanical damage – and Westinghouse are now scrambling to put matters right despite having previously pooh-poohed the concerns I mentioned on 1st May 2010.

The question is whether Westinghouse will be given the opportunity to do so – and at what political cost to Washington given the origins of the deal – or given their cavalier attitude in 2010, whether they are rightly and justifiably to be kicked out of Ukraine. . . . “

    ” . . . Chinese companies were looking for opportunities to sell nuclear fuel in Eastern Europe. . .”Russia had regained the market of nuclear fuel for water-cooled reactors after revelations at the Temelin Nuclear Power Plant (Czech Republic) and Loviisa Nuclear Power Plant (Finland). Diversification of fuel supplies in Ukraine started with a deal signed with American companies in 2000, during Leonid Kuchma’s presidency. As of 2007, the third block of the South Ukraine Nuclear Power Plant had 6 American reactor fuel assemblies, less than 1% of all fuel at Ukrainian nuclear facilities. President Yushchenko sped the process up after President Bush’s visit. 42 American reactor fuel assemblies were installed at the third block.”

S. Korea Nuke Plants Hacked, Threatened

23 12 2014

REPORT -

“Computer systems at Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Co. (KHNP)-the operator of South Korea’s 23 commercial nuclear reactors-were hacked and information divulged via blog posts and posts on Twitter, according to the company. The first leaks on Dec. 15 were of personal information obtained from some of the 10,799 employees of the company, but later posts included reactor cooling system valve drawings from the Kori Unit 1 nuclear power plant…” [They say no hack fears as they have analog system] “…The hacker is said to have threatened the release of more information if three reactors-Gori Units 1 and 3, and Wolsong Unit 3-are not shutdown by Dec. 25.”

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Reactor Tripping Out

problems and more problems …

Fort Calhoun Nuclear ReactorFort Calhoun Nuclear Reactor Trip 17 Dec. 2014 http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/event-status/event/en.html

The Fort Calhoun Nuclear Generating Station is a nuclear power plant located on 660 acres (2.7 km2) between Fort Calhoun, and Blair, Nebraska adjacent to the Missouri River… The power plant is owned by the Omaha Public Power District of Omaha, Nebraska and operated by Exelon Nuclear Partners. When operational, the plant accounts for 25 percent of OPPD’s net generation capabilities,[1] but was shut down from April 2011 to December 2013 because regulators had found several problems.[2] The plant was cleared to restart in December 2013.[3]

This plant has one Combustion Engineering pressurized water reactor generating 484 megawatts of electricity.[4] This is currently the smallest rated capacity among all operating commercial power reactors in North America, and as a single-unit plant, this also qualifies it as the smallest rated capacity nuclear power plant….

Fort Calhoun houses spent fuel rods in a 40-foot (12 m) deep spent fuel pool…
