Because they built it on an active fault line on a coast.
Every little shaker is going to crack this piece of crap. Because they did the same thing everyone else does, but even stupider, by trying to save
money on transmission and put the damn things as close as they could to their end user. So they put it on the damn coast. On a fault line.
Pay attention. The US has a freaking ton of these along the San Andreas. Only, I bet that there was even laxer standards on earthquake
Unless they can figure out how to isolate these 360 degrees - and that's more expensive - so that when it drops into the coean it is still contained,
this problem will continue. Or get worse. They are currently hoping to try "active management" until they can remove the radiation sources.
But since they've LOST some of the radiation sources, probably into the ground, there is still going to be a problem.
This is where this is going - long term active management of the site, until they can start removing the radiation sources.
Now if someone could figure out a nice way to essentially encase the whole damn thing in a large elastomere bubble that was resistant to radiation,
and will survive for several millenia.....and make it cheap enough that these stingy bastards who set this up this way to save money to begin with
will find it cheaper than active managment.....please stand up.
Because active management is going to get a whole frac of a lot worse if another earthquake shakes this whole sucker into the ocean.
