Konrad passed Nuclear Waste Repository Stress Test

On 11 March 2011, the earthquake near the Japanese coast and the resulting flooding caused by a tsunami have led to serious damage at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. As a result, a nuclear disaster occurred. Based on a stress test, facilities and installations for spent fuel element and radioactive waste management in Germany were now checked in terms of safety in case of a disaster. The future Konrad repository has passed the stress test.


wnn: New Concept for Offshore Nuclear Plant

A new floating nuclear power plant concept has been put forward by US university MIT based an offshore platform similar to those used by the oil industry.

The only floating nuclear power plant today is the Akademik Lomonosov, under construction in Russia, where two 35 MWe reactors similar to those used to propel ships are being mounted on a barge to be moored at a harbour. The concept from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) differs in that researchers propose a reactor of 200 MWe or more mounted in the centre of a floating cylindrical platform positioned around ten kilometres out to sea.

Recabling delays Shin Kori start ups

The start of commercial operation of the Shin Kori 3 and 4 reactors under construction in South Korea is likely to be delayed by a further year after safety-related control cabling failed quality tests.

Plant owner Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power (KHNP) reported on 16 October that control cabling installed during construction of the APR-1400 pressurized water reactors had failed flame tests, as well as tests to confirm the cable's performance in the event of a loss of coolant accident (LOCA). The cabling had been made and supplied by Korean company JS Cable.
