Newly Released TEPCO Data Proves Fairewinds Assertions of Significant Fuel Pool Failures at Fukushima Daiichi, Fairewinds, August 26, 2011:
[...] Just 2 days ago, TEPCO released a report that has a water analysis of the condition of the spent fuel pools at Fukushima. This data was taken in August, August 19th and 20th, so it is very current and I wanted to share it with you today. [...]
[T]he combination of both Cesiums in the fuel pool on Unit 2, is 220 million disintegrations per second in a liter of water.
So think of a liter Coke bottle and inside it the water is disintegrating at 220 million disintegrations every second, and that is just for Unit 2. The table also shows similar very high concentrations of Cesium in Unit 1 and in Unit 3. It clearly shows that there is damage to the fuel in those 3 units. [...] Units 1, 2, & 3 clearly have significant spent fuel damage. [...]
