Few technical updates available

The Japanese have not been forthcoming today with a slew of technical updates; this may well be because most efforts have slowed except those to dewater the turbine buildings so that access to the feed and condensate systems is possible.

Nos. 1, 2 and 3 are now all on freshwater injection to the reactors; on all three this is being done with pump vehicles. The US Navy has sent a barge with fresh water to be used as coolant, shown on various media. TEPCO indicates that the freshwater injection to No. 2 plant is borated.

Here is the latest JAIF document. It looks like the status notes section should be longer, but an error in formatting has cut it off...

JAIF STATUS 26 MARCH 10:00

As of 5:30 PM Tokyo time, lighting was available in the No. 2 control room.

Hopefully more information will come out today. Whether it does or doesn't, we'll be providing a status check today and an updated technical overview.. that ANYONE can understand .. about the events at Fukushima Daiichi.
