South Africa Signs Agreement With Russia for Nuclear Power

South Africa signed a partnership agreement with Russia’s state-owned nuclear company that may see Rosatom Corp. build reactors in Africa’s second-biggest economy.

“The agreement lays the foundation for the large-scale nuclear power plants procurement and development program” using Russian VVER reactors with installed capacity of about 9,600 megawatts, or as many as eight nuclear units, Rosatom and the South African government said in an e-mailed statement today. The country also has a draft nuclear cooperation pact with China.

South Africa’s integrated resources plan envisions 9,600 megawatts of nuclear energy being added to the national grid to help reduce reliance on coal, which utility Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd. uses to generate 80 percent of the country’s electricity. The state-owned company is struggling to meet power demand,

Molten Salt Nuclear Reactors: Part Of America's Long-Term Energy Future?

California Heat Wave Leaves Residents Vulnerable to Outages & Price Spikes

This past week, as temperatures in Southern California spiked over 100 degrees Fahrenheit in record highs, residents were forced to turn up their air conditioning. However, Bloomberg reports that hundreds of residents were left to fend for themselves in the heat wave as the electric grid buckled under the increased energy use and utilities faced power outages as a result. Local utilities such as the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power and San Diego Gas & Electric Co. had to ask customers to conserve power – a difficult task when, on average, an American home consumes 40 percent more electricity on a 103-degree day compared to normal summer temperatures.

IAEA meeting to highlight technologies to safely manage radioactive waste -

Nuclear technologies benefit people in many areas, including health, agriculture, the generation of electricity and manufacturing.  The radioactive waste generated by such processes can be safely managed, using robust and sustainable approaches to ensure that it poses no risk to people or the environment, now or in the future.

This is the focus of this year’s IAEA Scientific Forum, being held on 23-24 September 2014 on the sidelines of the Agency’s annual meeting of its 162-member states, theGeneral Conference.

KEWAUNEE POWER STATION: REQUEST FOR PERMANENTLY DEFUELED...

For a permanently shutdown and defueled reactor, 10 CFR 50.54(m) is not applicable. There is no equivalent regulation that directly requires control room staffing for a permanently shutdown and defueled reactor. As such, it is conceivable that the control room at KPS could be unoccupied for periods of time if the technical specifications, as proposed, were approved.

CALLAWAY: UNANALYZED CONDITION DUE TO A POSTULATED HOT-SHORT FIRE EVENT THAT COULD ADVERSELY IMPACT SAFE SHUTDOWN EQUIPMENT


"From review of Event Notification 50468 made by Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Company on 9/18/2014, which in turn was based on review of INPO Event Report 14-33, 'Direct Current Circuits Challenge Appendix R Fire Analysis,' it was determined that portions of the control circuits for the main turbine-generator direct-current (DC) Emergency Lube Oil Pump and the Emergency DC Seal Oil Pump at Callaway Plant are not properly fused to prevent overload and possible secondary fires. The review found that a fire at the motor starter cabinet in the turbine building could cause specific 'smart' hot shorts that could cause overheating of the control cable and result in secondary fires outside the turbine building, including the Control Building, thereby potentially affecting safe shutdown capability for the plant.

OYSTER CREEK: LOSS OF SECONDARY CONTAINMENT INTEGRITY

At approximately 2359 EDT a temporary modification plug was found to be removed from a floor drain in the Outboard MSIV Room (Trunnion Room). The purpose of the temporary modification plug is to ensure that secondary containment remains intact during outages where the trunnion room door is required to be open. The trunnion room door was open when the plug was found to be removed. The plug was immediately reinstalled, restoring the safety function of the secondary containment. 

"Per [10 CFR] 50.72(b)(3)(v)(C), Oyster Creek is reporting an event that could have prevented the fulfillment of the safety function of a system needed to control the release of radioactive material." 

Entergy owes overtime to supervisors

A jury in Burlington's Federal District Court found Friday that Entergy owes four security supervisors at the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant 5,500 hours of overtime pay.

Attorney Joseph Galanes of Galanes Law in Norwich, who represented the plaintiffs along with Diamond & Robinson, P.C. in Montpelier, said Friday that Senior Judge William Sessions III will determine the amount of damages to be paid to the employees.

Galanes said federal law dictates the amount of back pay owed is doubled in cases such as this one. He said the figure will run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Overtime verdict could cost Entergy $500,000

have a black MC cl??s and have experienced no problems with chipping, etc - but I don't use it on a daily basis. I would think that for a daily wallet that's going to get a lot of use, one of the other canvases might be a better choice in the long run. I don't think Vernis would be affected by use in a warm climate, though - as someone else said, when they say it shouldn't be left in the heat they mean i louis vuitton purse
