Thank you my friends in oversea countries. We lerned lots!
I received many mails from my friends in oversea countries. This is a letter to one of those friends who proposed me to come to his country evacuating Japan. I told him so far no need of evacuation. The content of my letter was as follows.
Dear my friend,
The problem of Fukushima Nuclear Power Station became international problem and many specialists for Nuclear power came from many countries such as USA, France, Russia, Ukraine to Japan and started their help for each special fields. It will take several weeks or months to make first stlement to make No.1 to 4 furnaces under control by establishing automatic cooling systems to reactors. At present, they are pumping out huge amount of contaminated water which hinder to start repair work for automatic cooling system. It is estimated at least 5 years will needed until the final close down of all 6 furnaces.w
We came to know several ridiculous incidents which became parts of this disaster. 1. The power station was built 40 years ago under basic condition to bear 4 m high Thunami. Actual Thunami attacked this time was 10 m high. Because until March 11 2011, there was no so high Thunami in this area. 2. All specification was US standard. Voltage was 400v and 6000v. When emergency generators failed to start, many movable power generators were asked to rush to the sight. These could supply only Japanese standard of 200v power and could not do anything because of difference of voltage. Although the first furnace was supplied by GE with Toshiba as sub-contractor, the number 2 and 3 were supplied by Toshiba and number 4 to 6 were supplied by Hitachi. It is nonsense to construct all US standard Nuclear Power Station in Japan. 3. Soon after the earthquake and Thunami, American government proposed to assist to solve the problem of Fukushima Nuclear Power Station, but Japanese government did not accept this proposal because Tokyo Electric Power Company replied to government they could manage to solve the problem. But after the burst of No.1 and 3 furnace buildings they asked Japanese government to evacuation of all their people from the site. Amazed Prime Minister Kahn summoned TOPCO management to the residence of Prime Minister and ordered to solve the problem with all of their capacity and informing all information to government. Otherwise Kahn told them to close the company.
