Asian press: The security system and anti-terrorist equipment are not fully operational at the Japanese nuclear power plant Kashiwazaki-Kariva

24

A special correspondent for the Asian edition of The Diplomat reports from Tokyo that TEPCO, which owns the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant, "might not have learned all the lessons from the events of 2011." Recall that in 2011 at the aforementioned nuclear power plant there was an accident associated with a tsunami. Until now, the station has not solved the problems, the main of which is related to the corrosion of the reservoirs where the radioactive water is stored. According to some reports, due to the corrosion of special tanks, such water is already entering the ocean.


As it turns out, this is not the only problem for Tokyo Electric Power. The situation is also difficult at another nuclear power plant in Japan, which the company serves. We are talking about the Kashiwazaki-Kariva nuclear power plant, which has been operating since September 1985. The station was severely damaged during the 2007 earthquake. Then a fire broke out at one of the power units, hundreds of tanks with radioactive waste were damaged, as a result of which this waste began to fall into the ocean.

In 2018, a special commission of the Office for Nuclear Regulatory Affairs established that anti-terrorist equipment does not work at the Kashiwazaki-Kariva NPP, and that the protection of nuclear materials should not be ensured. The head of the aforementioned department, Fuketa Toyoshi, notes that even today all the problems at the station have not been fully resolved, although the safety functions have been "partially restored."

The security system is not fully functioning, the preservation of nuclear waste is not ensured, there are problems with anti-terrorist equipment at the station.

The Diplomat writes that they plan to bring TEPCO to "financial responsibility" for the state of the Kashiwazaki-Kariva NPP. Also, the company may be completely deprived of the license to operate the nuclear power plant.

This nuclear power plant has been assigned a special - "red" - rating level, which actually allows terrorist groups to enter its territory. The "red" rating mark was assigned to the Japanese nuclear energy operator for the first time in stories... This cannot but cause concern among ordinary Japanese, especially those who live in the area where the nuclear power plant is located.

TEPCO President Kobayakawa Tomoaki:

I am forced to apologize for harming security. I and three other leaders of our company have cut our salaries by a third for the next six months. We are taking the issue seriously, investigating its root cause, and will continue to pursue radical reform efforts.

The press notes that the Japanese operator of the nuclear power plant "is frivolous about the problem, for years without making proper efforts to solve it."

From the material:

Critics of the company's work demand to establish a full-fledged anti-terrorist security system at the Kashiwazaki-Kariva nuclear power plant, as it is located opposite North Korea.

    To the point of their statements and apologies, such a rich and powerful economically country is simply not able to solve these problems on its own. And, they will not turn to other countries for help, because they think a lot of themselves! Well, if only they have phono, the danger from their indifference will turn out to be a disaster for neighboring countries, including Russia.

        Directly removed from the tongue Vladimir Greetings! And the contamination of the ocean continues, they just wash everything into the ocean and do not build any sarcophagi and the like .. They cool it with sea water so that it does not smoke and pour everything into the ocean .. Gretta is silent and other Greenpeaces .. Because there are US military bases and This infa is a taboo for all media .. Russia is only outraged, but no one hears it.

            And the horror of a terrible fish is what they supply us from the Far East .. The Japanese then take away the clean one from our fishermen, and the rest to Russia ..
            And the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, which has officially become our territorial sea? the current enters there and destroys the unique flora and fisheries ..
            This is a sabotage of the highest standard!

              All salmon "walk" in the Pacific Ocean, and go to spawn on the shores of Primorye, the Kuriles, Sakhalin, Magadan, Khabarovsk ... And what does it eat in T.O. no one knows, also herring, pollock and other fish .... It is NOT ALLOWED to cook from fresh fish! Only after freezing.

        The Kashiwazaki-Kariva NPP is the world's most powerful nuclear power plant (8 GW), located on the western coast of the Honshu Island of the Japanese archipelago, directly opposite Vladivostok. After the 2007 earthquake, all reactors were shut down due to the movement of the soil under the nuclear power plant and the discovery of a leak of radioactive water from the spent nuclear fuel storage. Leaks / discharges of radioactive water continue.

        The extent of the radioactive contamination of the Sea of ​​Japan was not disclosed.

    For the first time in history, a Japanese nuclear power operator has been awarded a "red" rating.
    And mind you, just now in 2021. Neither in 2007 nor in 2011 it stirred anyone. And why? Because their relatives. And do not care about the environment and the whole world. And so it looks like TEPCO will go bankrupt. Such business and financial responsibility for the same Fukushima can be removed. And nobody owes anyone. Purely gentlemen.

    Try to find a talkative Japanese man who will reveal the secrets of a high-risk object. Something seems to me there are none. They have more than just loyalty to the country. the emperor, but there is also corporate solidarity. Nobody and nowhere can give guarantees against terrorism - cataclysms.

    And this is definitely not propaganda? The Japanese are renowned for their hard work, dedication and discipline. I can't believe that this is possible with them, this level of slovenliness is found only in the post-Soviet space.

      Are you talking about people stirring uranium nitrous oxide in nitric acid by hand in a bucket?
      ... 3 years before the accident, the plant, without the consent of the Science and Technology Directorate, arbitrarily changed the cleaning procedure. Workers now manually mixed uranium oxide and nitric acid in 10-liter stainless steel buckets, rather than in a dedicated tank; they added the resulting mixture not to the buffer tank, but directly to a fairly wide and voluminous settling tank.

      While the plant was working with low-enriched (5%) raw materials, everything was rolled. But one day, 18% of the raw materials for an experimental reactor were brought to the plant. And it was processed according to the usual scheme. The result is 20 hours of chain reaction in the sump, three corpses and 667 irradiated people.

    As for the Japanese, do not flatter yourself and worry. Now the Russian Olympic surfing team is training on the island of Kunashir.
    Here's what Japanese readers have written about the matter:

    “Fees on the islands illegally seized by Russia. This is illegal entry into Japan, so the Russian team should not be allowed to the Olympics. "

    “Russia violated the pact of neutrality and exiled the Japanese to Siberia, many of whom died. This is unforgivable. The worst enemy that cannot be trusted is Russia. It is already necessary to abandon attempts to peacefully resolve the territorial problem and respond adequately, taking into account the interests of Japan. "

    “Russia occupied four islands when the Japanese army had already laid down its arms. This is revenge for losing the Russo-Japanese War. Japanese troops defeated the Baltic Fleet - this is the highest humiliation. The only way to get the islands back is through war. ”

    “So far, the Japanese government has not made any statements, but expressing regrets will not be enough. When these athletes arrive in Japan, they must be arrested. For illegal entry into the territory of our country ”.

    Therefore. Let them eat radioactive fish and seafood, drink radioactive water. I do not care.

    Fukushima's lessons seem to have not been learned. Is there anything worse left to wait?
    Me and three other leaders of our company have cut our salaries by a third for the next six months
    I'm going to cry with emotion. Frankly speaking, one does not give a damn about such "dedication" in relation to one's salary when the lives of tens of thousands of people are at stake.
