TEPCO Doesn’t Know How To Fix Power Outage

CBC Canada is reporting more on the power outage at Fukushima Daiichi.

TEPCO confirms that reactor cooling is also taken down in the power outage. They also make this admission:

The Tokyo Electric Power Company confirmed that it had a partial power failure Monday evening and then discovered the problem with an electricity supply unit. Currently the cooling systems in reactors one, three and four are not operational and representatives from TEPCO are unsure how to fix them.”

TEPCO went on to claim they could have it fixed in a few days but did not elaborate how they plan to do so if they do not currently know how to repair the problem. TEPCO thinks they have 4 days before things will start to heat back up.

NHK is reporting a heat up estimate of .1 to .3 degrees and hour. This is in line with our earlier estimate of .19c per hour heat up at unit 4’s spent fuel pool.

There is still no word of exactly what has happened beyond earlier news accounts of a high voltage line and distribution panel on site being impacted.
