NRA To Investigate Fukushima Disaster

The NRA has announced they will officially start an investigation into the technical issues of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

The investigation of two issues begin immediately. Those are:

1. Unit 1’s isolation condensers and if they were damaged by the earthquake

2. The cause of the hydrogen explosion at unit 4

Both issues have been highly controversial. TEPCO and the national government have dismissed both issues in their reports but questions remain.

The other issues to be investigated by the NRA are:

3. Did the earthquake damage the plant and how

4. The meltdown events for the three units and the current status and location of the melted fuel.

The NRA has so far appeared to be fairly independent and focused on facts rather than politics. This investigation will test that assumption. If the investigation is conducted well it could result in a major step forward in understanding the disaster. To date most of the information has come from TEPCO with little outside direct evidence gathering or inspection. With TEPCO’s track record of lying to the public and incompetence this is obviously problematic.
