Nuclear energy specialists team analyzed Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear
Power Plant data and put together their opinions. It said “Although
tsunami caused the power plants blackout, it wouldn’t have caused
severe crisis like meltdown if it had been handled properly.”
The massive tsunami attacked Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. #1
reactor completely lost the AC source. In the crisis like that, the
isolation  condenser, aka IC, which enables to cool off steam
throughout the coolant inside of the tank and changes it into water,
then put the water back into the reactor had to be utilized.
The specialist team of Professor Narabayashi of Hokkaido University
and nuclear power plant product maker OB of 34 members started
analyzing the publicized data provided by the government and TEPCO on
their own terms and found out about the trouble of #1 reactor IC.
“Tsunami caused control console board shut down and that generated
wrong signal. Because of this incident, the function conked out.” “It
took more than 2 hours to realize the consol board shut down and
restart it. During this event the reactor core got damaged and melt
down started.”
The specialist team assume that initial mistake caused fatal damage,
as the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Pland Director Yoshida was
putting together the recovery plan without realizing IC shutdown.

“If only there had been a proper direction to fully utilize the IC
while complete AC course loss, TEPCO might have been able to avoid
reactor core meltdown. That’s too bad.” Reactor Engineering Professor
Narabayashi of Hokkaido University
The specialist team considers that the wrong crisis management caused
lethal accident of #1, #2 and #3 reactor. “There wouldn’t have been
severe accident like meltdown and hydrogen explosion even without AC
source caused by tsunami, if TEPCO had handled the situation
properly.”
TEPCO commented on this analysis and stated “No comment on this
hypothesis theory.”
