German expert: Fights in the east of Ukraine threaten the safety of Zaporizhzhya NPP

34
German expert Greenpeace in the field of nuclear energy Tobias Munchmayer shared his concerns about the safety of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant in eastern Ukraine. In particular, he noted that the nuclear power plant does not have sufficient protection from direct shelling from the air - meter-high reinforced concrete shells that surround the reactors can save them when a small plane falls, but will be useless with a bombing attack.

German expert: Fights in the east of Ukraine threaten the safety of Zaporizhzhya NPP


"The region is now a lot of armor-piercing weapons, able to penetrate this defense ", - quotes the expert "RT in Russian".

In addition, Munchmayer stressed that the station built by Soviet engineers depends on the import of Russian equipment.

Zaporizhzhya NPP is the largest not only in Ukraine, but throughout Europe, as well as the fifth largest in the world. It is located on the shores of the Kakhovsky reservoir approximately 200 kilometers from the borders of the Donetsk region.

The site of the station notes that it withstands an earthquake up to 7 points on the Richter scale, as well as an explosion of five tons of trotyl at a distance of 200 meters from the object. In addition, the protective covers of the reactors withstand hits of the tactical fighter MiG-29, which contradicts the statements of the German expert.

    And this is 15 tons multiplied by 1 mach (the speed of sound), perhaps only "Point-y" will exceed this huge kinetic energy.
    A great threat is the seizure of a station in one of the Kalomoiski gangs and the deliberate detonation of a hot zone!

      And why exactly the MiG-29? Checked something in an instant? And hits of other planes can’t stand it? ... Koryavyenko is written like that.

          In fact, this is not the judgment and determination of only the Greenpeace expert, it is the declared characteristics of the control and protection department.
          Zaporizhzhya NPP belongs to the type of VVER-1000 reactors - a nuclear reactor of a series of VVER reactors with a rated electrical capacity of 1000 MW, thermal - 3000 MW. Currently, this type of reactor is the most common in its series - 32 operating reactors.
          The safety system in such reactors is very, very serious (unlike RBMK-1000 type reactors). If they do not shoot at it directly (or half-straight), then the reactor is able to withstand a fairly large number of shocks (emergency situations).

          "Styrene" was not bombed, they were afraid of infection, I do not think that they will want to arrange a second Pripyat.
          And then, in the event of battles in the immediate vicinity, all that remains is to "drop" the reactor in order to avoid casualties and destruction. And I think the station workers are well aware of this.

      To decide to "blow up" a nuclear power plant, you need to be not just Svidomo, but a complete idiot. After all, EVERYONE will have to be "not sickly" hundreds of kilometers around, and this is not just suicide. There is another idiotic decision of the newly-minted Kiev "rulers" - to use nuclear fuel at Ukrainian nuclear power plants, the production of mattresses, the use of which can lead to a similar result (explosion, etc.), which once almost led to a disaster. And in this case, the "cat blindness" of the European rulers continues to "amaze" who, like blind kittens, follow the path indicated by mattresses who, in order to survive on their own, need a global slaughter, but on foreign territory.

      The terrorist attack at the nuclear power plant is practically a real reason for the deployment of UN troops, not to mention the consequences. Benny has already given the order to blow up the Dnieper hydroelectric station. Leave without light several regions in his style. Therefore, interested in its elimination become even more. Including in the Kuev junta.

    Yes ... if only it threatened the Zaporizhzhya NPP, it would be a quarter of the trouble. In Ukraine, there are plenty of facilities that pose a threat to ALL MANKIND, in Zaporizhzhya, in Donetsk, in the Kharkov region ... That’s why it’s necessary, all this should be stopped by the world ... Otherwise, Kolomoisky threatens to blow up the Dnieper hydroelectric station ... I would I agree, but only on condition that he will gather all his relatives and settle them near the Dnieper, downstream ...

    I'm just wondering how much sleep you need ???? War is always bad, but next to a nuclear power plant it’s generally complete kirdyk. We need to think about how to reconcile the warring parties, and not to throw loot, weapons to one of the parties, and not provide moral support for the war. Geyrope needs to impose sanctions against Ukraine, and not against Russia. So you look at everything and calm down. A thin world is always better than a good quarrel.

    Yes, nuclear power is serious. And given the fact that the U.Krop junta and individual paramilitary units of the Maydan people can take any action - seriously doubly.
    I completely agree that it is high time for the geyrope to scratch its head and take some measures. And then fixated on Russia, that they themselves are similar to galloping with distraught eyes.

      Of course, our specialists also need to closely monitor the situation. A nuclear power plant is a potentially dangerous facility for Russia.
      That's just this expert - Greenpeace, and this already initially does not cause trust.
      Let our experts speak better on this subject, they know this station much better, and trust in them is immeasurably greater. In my opinion, the VVER-1000 reactor is installed at the Zaporizhzhya NPP - it is the safest of those in operation today.
      If there is no deliberate undermining from within - and there are no kamikaze, I hope at nuclear power plants, and even among ukronatsiks - then the rest is an extremely safe and reliable design.
      I don’t want to believe in shelling of nuclear power plants from both sides.

      Stop the nuclear power plant ?! Do you know what this entails, what time frame it will require and how much money you need to swell there? Much easier can be done: Novorossia will take it into wide mites, without direct fights near. All! You can still provide a guarantee from Russia: air defense and assault air squadron nearby. Where from? In leasing, for example, New Russia from Russia. Volunteer crews from there ....

    They will not explode from the inside. Even the maydan throats understand that after this all the geyropes will turn their backs on them, and not only turn their backs, but will run headlong. They still remember the events in Chernobyl, otherwise they would not have undertaken to build their superfood sarcophagus.
    As for the "hit of the MiG-29" in the power unit, then IMHO it is, a newspaper duck. In general, the question is: hits or falls? If hits, then from what? And if it falls, then why exactly the MiG-29, and not the Yak-40, for example, or the An-24, there will be more of them. Novorossia will definitely not use any barrel artillery or missiles - why should they be contaminated in the immediate vicinity of the house for which they are fighting. And in my opinion there are more sane people in Novorossiya than in Kiev. There, for the majority and the Kiev government and so on. the fool is crying.
    And what is the distance from Zaporizhzhya NPP to the territory of Russia? If close, then ours will rise too.

    All this is scary, but here, it seems to me, Russia is already intervening directly.
    I remember We had special anti-terror groups that were sharpened to carry out tasks to free nuclear power plants and nuclear icebreakers from terrorists. Therefore, here I see the situation as follows. The army of Novorossiya surrounds nuclear infrastructure facilities, and then our specialists seize the stations and clear them of ukroterrorists. In this case, more than one Gay European muzzle will not vyaknet, because no one wants to catch Chernobyl-2 nearby. Although with their gay-European "values" it is not possible to be completely sure of anything.

    NORMS for building design of nuclear power plants with reactors of various types Rules and regulations in nuclear energy
    PiN AE-5.6 1986

    1.8. The construction of buildings and structures of category I must be calculated taking into account the following special effects:
    1.8.6. The fall of the plane.
    Note: The need to take into account the impact of an airplane crash is determined by the "General Provisions for Ensuring the Safety of Nuclear Power Plants during Design, Construction and Operation", as well as special requirements of the Customer.

    PNAE G - 1 - 024 - 90:
    4. AU with reactor type AST.
    4.5. ... The calculated parameters of the falling aircraft:
    weight - 20t, drop speed 700km / h, applied load on a circle with an area of ​​7m2.

    At Zaporizhzhya NPP, it looks like RU with VVR or RBMK, for them the requirements are different:
    Load graph - time taking into account changes in the deformation area F (t) of a falling airplane
    Aircraft Parameters
    Weight - 20 tf
    Speed ​​- 200 m / s

    Almost nobody has been friends with them in the West for a long time.
    the nuclear power plant does not have sufficient protection against direct shelling from the air - the meter-long reinforced concrete shells that surround the reactors will be able to save them when a small plane crashes, but will be useless with a missile bomb attack.
