Coolant system of Reactor 6 spent fuel pool also suspended for 2 hours

Coolant system of Reactor 6 spent fuel pool also suspended for 2 hours

Related to this article.. Reactor 5 temperature jumped up 13 ℃ while losing coolant system only for 2 days [URL]


On 7/11/2014, Tepco announced the coolant system of SFP 6 (Reactor 6 spent fuel pool) was temporarily suspended for a technical problem too.


Reactor 6 was in the process to move all the fuel assemblies from the reactor to SFP 6 in order to centralize the fuels to cool down.

The cooling system was intermitted while they were transferring the fuel. They were planning to restart the coolant system at 17:00 but it was suspended until 19:00.

The cause of suspension was water leakage from a valve again.


From their report, if they couldn’t reboot the coolant system, the pool temperature would have gone over the safety limit in 5 days.

Le système de  refroidissement du réacteur 6 également à l’arrêt pendant 2 heures


Article lié : La température du réacteur 5 est montée de 13 ℃ pour être resté sans refroidissement pendant 2 jours seulement

Le 11 juillet 2014, Tepco annonce que le système de refroidissement de la SFP 6 (piscine des combustibles usagés du réacteur 6) a été  temporairement arrêté également à cause d’un problème technique.

Le réacteur 6 était dans une phase de déplacement de toutes les barres de combustible du réacteur vers sa SFP pour rassembler les combustibles à refroidir.
Le système de refroidissement a fonctionné de façon  intermittente pendant qu’ils transféraient les combustibles. Ils avaient prévu de redémarrer le refroidissement à 17:00 mais ils l’ont repoussé jusqu’à 19:00.
La raison de ce retard est encore une fuite d’eau sur une vanne.

Selon leur rapport, s’ils ne peuvent pas redémarrer le système de refroidissement, la température de la piscine dépassera la limite de sécurité dans 5 jours.

    Stopping the Nuclear LIES and DEATHS

    The only way to reduce the LIES, Distortions, Deaths and Subsidies of the Civilian Nuclear Power Industry; is to shut down most of the Civilian Nuclear Power Stations. Here is a pack of their LIES and DISTORTIONS: http ://

    A few Nuclear Power Reactors should be constructed, deep underground; with triple redundant coolant mechanisms; strictly for research purposes, and a hedge against an uncertain future. THEN the cancers, diseases and Cost of Living would decline; and the Quality of Life will improve.

    Then & Only Then

      If nuclear reactors were constructed underground, would they not need to first solve the emissions problems obfuscated for public consumption above ground?

      When i cook banana slices and allow to cool, a radiation symbol appears in the banana. Sorry, i stopped reading that linky you posted above when they equated harmful radiation emitted by such plants with the radiation in a banana, which is an apple and orange comparison! ;)
