Work to restore power, inject fresh coolant into nuke plant continues
TOKYO, March 27, Kyodo
Tokyo Electric Co. continued efforts Sunday to restore power and enhance cooling efficiency at the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant as it
prepared to turn on the lights in the control room for the plant's No. 4 reactor and inject fresh water into four reactors.
The utility, known as TEPCO, will inject fresh water into pools storing the spent nuclear fuel at the plant's No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 reactors to prevent
crystallized salt from seawater already injected from hampering the smooth circulation of water and thus diminishing the cooling effect.
The company continued with the work to remove a pool of water containing highly concentrated radioactive substances that was detected in the turbine
buildings of the No. 1 reactor at the plant in Fukushima Prefecture, around 220 kilometers northeast of Tokyo.
Similar pools of water that may have seeped from either the reactor cores or the spent fuel pools were also detected in the turbine buildings of the
No. 2, 3 and 4 reactors. TEPCO will remove the water in all four reactor units.
The company will also try to inject fresh water into No. 1, 2, and 3 reactors using electrical pumps instead of fire pumps currently used as soon as
the power supply for the pumps is restored at the reactors.
Electrical pumps enable workers to spend less time and energy operating the machines at the site, thus reducing the risk of exposure to radioactivity.
The fire pumps require workers to supply fuel at the site of operation.
Following the March 11 megaquake and tsunami, cooling functions failed at the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 reactors and their reactor cores partially melted
at the plant on the Pacific coast, prompting seawater to be pumped in to prevent the fuel from being exposed.
So you see we are all Wrong-Everything is Under control-go to SLEEP!
