IAEA Initial Report - June 1

A short while back, TEPCO released a press photo of the IAEA inspection team on site at Fukushima Daiichi. This team also visited Fukushima Daini, and the Japan Atomic Power Company's Tokai NPP site which includes the shut down gas-cooled No. 1 and BWR Tokai No. 2.

The IAEA has, today, released a preliminary report on the visit. It has been sufficiently long now after the initial earthquake, tsunami and accident initiation that valid reports covering areas of interest and concern will appear and this report is among the very first. Link to this report is below.

  2. Good link to that report -- and as far as I know none of the mainstream media sites has/mentioned it. If only that site had been half as water-proofed as it was quake-resistant! I am surprised that Japan, of all nations, didn't have any customized nuclear robots on at least one of their sites!

    Well funny you should ask! Official reason: "because accidents do not occur at nuclear power plants."
