Japan Installs New Power Line at Fukushima Daiichi Plant
This sounds like good news…
Japanese officials have installed a new electric cable at the Fukushima Daiichi Plant. Officials hope the electricity will be able to help cool down the crippled reactors.
Japanese officials have installed cables to supply electricity from Tohoku Electric Power Co.’s (9506) power grid to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, a step they hope will help inject water more efficiently into the facility’s crippled reactors that are at the center of Japan’s nuclear crisis, the government’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said at a news conference Thursday night.
Officials will try to connect the cable to the plant’s No. 2 reactor on Friday, the agency said.
The No. 2 reactor’s containment vessel was partly damaged in its pressure suppression chamber. The reactor building is emitting vapor deemed to have originated from spent nuclear fuel’s storage pools into the air.
