Flood tide could inundate the Missouri River in Fort Calhoun and Cooper Nuclear Power Plant over the two (like Japan, Fukushima) declared no-fly zone. However, central government officials have assured that Nebraska really Fukushima scenario will not be repeated.
Fort Calhoun plant management this week has taken additional measures to prevent a rapid rise in Missouri in the water, because the forecaster predicts that the next few days, heavy rains will continue, and the situation in the flood zone will become even more complex.
As reported by World Nuclear News, 112 kilometers from the largest city of Nebraska Omaha in power - just one of many river of energy facilities directly affected by rising flood water. This news sparked speculation about the critical situation in Fort Calhoun, and even commenced to melt the reactor rods. These languages have increased the decision to declare no-fly zone over semiamos power.
A similar situation is developing in and south of the city of Omaha in the Cooper plant. It was reported that preparations for the reactor off an emergency, if the water level could rise 180 cm. Both facilities are equipped with powerful pumps continuously pump water out of sites, but it is still there.
Energy experts said, the essential difference between Nebraska and the Fukushima plant is the period during which the staff had to prepare for the reactor shutdown. In Japan it was an hour after the earthquake, and Nebraska - a few weeks, during which it was going to flood.
"Of course, within a period not to transfer power to a higher place and nepastatysi her on the pole, but can be reliably sealed door, back-up power supply and so on" - the newspaper Omaha World Heral said the U.S. nuclear specialist.
Fort Calhoun managing the company's Omaha Public Power District managers reported that the barriers should be installed to protect the plant if the water rises to critical levels. These power reactor is turned off in April.
