Canada accidentally reports accident at a nuclear power plant


Yesterday morning, residents of Ontario received SMS alerts on their mobile devices about the incident at Pickering Nuclear Power Station. An alarm message was sent automatically by the Emergency Center of this Canadian province.


The sent text refers to the emergency at the station, which does not pose a danger to the surrounding residents:

An incident at Pickering NPP is reported. There were no abnormal releases of radioactivity at the station, and emergency services are dealing with the situation.

In this message, people living in the district were not recommended to carry out any protective measures.

It was received at 7:30 in the morning by everyone who lives up to ten kilometers from the station.

Soon a second message arrived, which refuted the first, as it was sent out erroneously.

The company Ontario Power Generation, which serves this nuclear power plant, confirmed that the messages were erroneous and that there was no danger either to residents or to the surrounding area.

Pickering NPP is located on the shores of Lake Ontario, 50 kilometers from the Canadian city of Toronto. It is considered one of the largest nuclear power plants in the world.

    I think that all the same, there was something there. Nobody wants to raise a fuss. To this very day, not everything is known about Fukushima, so why should it be different with this nuclear power plant?

      There is no smoke without fire. If the system worked, then something nevertheless provoked it. If it is recognized that these messages are erroneous, then you need to deal with the system - what is it buggy about.

        Smoke without fire does not happen.

        We will look ...
        Almost a day has passed. The flight is normal.
        Well, I live a hundred kilometers. Or more a bit.

          Of course, the equipment worked automatically, and then people decided to fix it so that there would be no panic.

              The plane is flying. Handsfree pilot:
              - Dear ladies and gentlemen, you are greeted by the commander of the ship. Listen to information about our flight. Our flight takes place at an altitude of 10 thousand meters at a speed of 900 kilometers per hour, the temperature is overboard ... AAAA! .. THIS IS WHAT? ..
              Inside, deathly silence.
              A minute later, again on the radio:
              - I apologize to the respected passengers. It's just that our flight attendant knocked over hot coffee at me. Would you now see my white pants in front ...
              A man in the front row:
              - Your pants, this is all rubbish! You should have seen my pants from behind ...

      To this Fukushima to this day, not everything is known

      YES, almost everything is known. Cut off electricity, tsunamis, steel reactor cooling pumps. Overheating and failure of reactors and breakthrough of the cooling circuit. The little girl from the circuit flows into the ocean ..
      In the primary circuit in water, the main isotope is tritium .. pp 12years decay energy 18 keV ... It will not even penetrate human skin. Therefore, it is poured into the ocean.
      Although there is a question .. to the quality of the water in the circuit, if not distilled then there may still be isotopes ..

        No, far from everything is known, or rather, practically nothing. That is why journalists write can be safely flushed into the toilet. What are the victims? The volume of the spreading fluid? What measures were taken then and what now? There are more questions than answers.

    Yesterday morning, residents of Ontario received SMS alerts on their mobile devices about the incident at Pickering Nuclear Power Station. An alarm message was sent automatically by the Emergency Center of this Canadian province.
    In the morning I wildly rattled the phone (emergency messages are very loud and nasty), an SMS arrived, but it did not contain a warning about the accident, but rather a notification that residents of 10 km of the zone should not be afraid, everything is in order!
    Then an hour later the squeal and SMS again that the first message was false.

            Japan mother!
            It turns out
            She is considered one of the largest

            We should refuel there, maybe gasoline is the cheapest in the world! laughing

    The more they come up with automatic security systems and alerts, the greater the likelihood of a false positive. You can’t trust computers, no matter how smart they are ..

      I don’t know how in Canada, but Rosatom’s NPPs have three independent safety systems, maybe in Canada, one system worked by mistake, the alarm went off, but the other two didn’t confirm, in Russian NPPs, however, more advanced systems safety, in particular, jamming of the reactor occurs even in the complete absence of electricity, as was the case in Fukushima, graphite moderators simply fall into the core, themselves, without the participation of operators

        three independent security systems

        Rosatom has long and successfully built power units with 4 independent security channels. These are VVER-1200 and VVER-TOI (2 units of Kursk NPP-2 in construction).

        graphite moderators

        The main material of the absorbing elements of the control and protection system (PEL CPS) is B4C, boron carbide.

    In scared people! Radiophobia is strong, and the real dangers are far less than imagined ... During Chernobyl, the largest number of victims was due to termination of pregnancy, due to radiophobia. In Europe. The bill went to tens of thousands.

    Pickering NPP is located on the shores of Lake Ontario ...

    Fukushima variant at the very edge of the water.
    Ontario is one of the Great Lakes. Such lakes as seiches are not rare in these lakes.
    Seiche (French Seiche) - standing waves that occur in closed or partially closed bodies of water [1]. Seiches are the result of resonance phenomena in a reservoir during the interference of waves reflected from the boundaries of a reservoir.
    https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Сейши
    And these seiches are very destructive. https://shkolazhizni.ru/world/articles/40121/
