Alert at the Fukushima nuclear power plant for cooling failures

evacuacionThe Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the company that manages the twoFukushima nuclear power plantsaffected by the earthquake last Friday, isinjecting sea water mixed with boric acidin three of the six reactors at the Fukushima-Daiichi plant to cool them, as due to the flooding produced by the post-earthquake tsunami the cooling system failed. In principle, everything indicates that the reactors at the Fukushima-Daini nuclear plant are stable.

On the other hand, TEPCO reports that in the last measurementslevels of radioactive materials have been detected above normal levels in the open air spaces of the nuclear power plant. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the evacuation of the population has already been carried out in 20 kilometers around, a measure that affects 210,000 people.

In a statement released today, the Spanish Nuclear Forum has assured that, according to the data currently available, “the actions that are being carried out in the reactors are being effective.” ? All the protocols established for these extreme situations are being followed. We must analyze the evolution, but time is running in favor, since the reactors have been stopped since the beginning of the earthquake ?, they conclude.

However, the Japanese Chief Executive Secretary, Yukio Edano, has stated that one of the reactors at the Fukushima-Daiichi plant could have suffered apartial nucleus fusion, as reported by the US network CNN.

The Japanese authorities have classified the accident in these facilities as a result of the earthquake of March 11 in thelevel 4 of 7 of the International Nuclear and Radiological Events Scale(INES).Japan has 54 nuclear reactors in operationwhich in 2010 produced 29.21% of its electricity.

Also in Onawa

This afternoon, the IAEA announced that a state of emergency has been declared in anothercentral nuclear, the ofOnawa, in Miyagi prefecture, where thestate of emergency 1, the lowest on the scale. In Onawa, the plant’s 3 reactors “are under control,” according to Japanese authorities. “The alert has been declared because the levels of radioactivity registered exceed the authorized levels in the area near the plant,” the international organization explained in a statement. Japanese authorities are trying to determine the source of the radiation.
