Eine ehemalige Gewerbehalle in Zwingen BL, die von Privaten und Fasnächtlern als Lager genutzt wird, darf nicht mehr betreten werden. Grund ist eine Quecksilber-Kontamination.

Die Ende August wegen zu hoher Quecksilber-Belastung gesperrte ehemalige Gewerbehalle in Zwingen BL bleibt für immer geschlossen. Dies haben die Behörden aufgrund neuer Untersuchungen entschieden.

Diese hätten ergeben, dass sich im Boden unter der Halle 500 bis 1000 Kilogramm Quecksilber befinden, sagt Andreas Schärer, Gemeindeverwalter von Zwingen. Deshalb müsse die Halle abgebrochen und der Boden abgetragen werden.

GCHQ cyber experts have been called in after a digital attack on a major player in Britain’s nuclear power ­industry triggered a security crisis.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), an arm of GCHQ, has been ­secretly providing assistance to a ­nuclear power company in the UK that has struggled to recover after being hit by a cyber attack, The Telegraph can reveal.

RADIOACTIVE water is leaking from a nuclear waste storage building as big as 132 double-decker buses at Sellafield.

Sellafield Ltd said there is no risk to staff nor the wider community as the water, which covers the solid radioactive waste in the silo, will remain in the ground "for some time".

The leak is believed to be originating from the six older compartments of the Magnox Swarf Storage Silo, which has 22 compartments in total. However it is not known how much water has been lost so far.

The majority of the radioactive material stored there is fuel cladding, which Sellafield says has an intermediate level of radioactivity.

A company spokesman said: "This was a known risk which is linked to the work to empty the silo and permanently remove the hazard.

"It is something we have planned and prepared for. Our modelling and understanding of a previous leak in the 1970s shows that the liquid will remain held in the ground under the building for some time.

"This ground is already contaminated. We have a range of options available for containing the material if it begins to migrate. This migration process would take years and gives us a considerable amount of time to respond.

"We continuously monitor groundwater around the facility and this monitoring shows there is no increase in radiation levels."

Sellafield said that while the water is radioactive, the vast majority of the radioactivity in the building (99.5%) is held within the solid waste.

The water is used to cover the solid radioactive material to keep it cool and prevent fires.

The company said: "It is this water which we suspect is leaking from the building. Investigations are ongoing to establish the volume of water lost.

"It is difficult to calculate an exact figure because the water levels in the building are always expected to vary, due to evaporation and other processes."

The original six compartments were built in the 1960s. The building was extended three times up until the 1980s to accommodate more waste.

An original leak in the 1970s ended when the route was ‘plugged’ by solid material in the compartment.

The spokesman said: "Since then we have been continually monitoring the water levels in the building. We would always anticipate some variation in a building of this size, but in October this year we increased our level of monitoring and observation after recent figures showed some increased variations."

The levels of water are constantly monitored at the silo, but increased monitoring began in October.

The News & Star understands workers repairing the leak were asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement, preventing them from discussing the details of the work, however Sellafield has denied this.

The spokesman said: "We have been open and transparent about this incident. We have kept our regulators and stakeholders informed throughout and published details on our website on 18 November."

Last month there was another leak in the older part of the site and work is due to take place in the new year.

Sellafield said: "The current suspected leak is in an inaccessible part of the building, which is underground. Our method for dealing with the hazard posed by the building is to remove the waste from the compartments, demolish the building and then deal with the contaminated ground underneath. This has been agreed with our regulators. Waste retrievals are scheduled to start next year. Our focus will be on ensuring the radioactive material remains in the already contaminated ground under the facility and there is no risk to our workforce or the wider public."

France to give millions of residents iodine pills while EDF spots problems in six nuclear reactors

France will soon start distributing radioactivity-blocking iodine pills to an additional 2.2 million people living near the country's 19 nuclear power plants. Separately on Wednesday EDF acknowledged manufacturing problems in six reactors while one in Normandy was shut down due to signs of corrosion.
The ASN nuclear safety authority had announced in June an extension of the safety radius to 20 kilometres (12 miles) of each plant, up from 10 kilometres set in 2016, when some 375,000 households were prescribed the pills.

The watchdog said Tuesday that affected residents will receive a letter in the coming days with a voucher to collect stable iodine tablets from pharmacies, as well as information on what to do in case of a nuclear accident.

"If radioactive iodine is released into the environment, taking stable iodine is one of the most effective ways of protecting the thyroid," the ASN said in a statement.

The thyroid, which produces hormones regulating the body's metabolism, is particularly at risk from cancer caused by exposure to radioactive iodine released in nuclear accidents.

On the same day, but not linked to the distribution of the Iodine pills, Energy giant EDF announced that it recognized manufacturing problems on six active nuclear reactors in France, but they were still deemed "fit for use".

"At this stage of the technical instruction on these components, EDF considers that the discrepancies noted do not call into question the service suitability of the equipment and do not require immediate treatment", read the EDF statement.

The reactors were in the power stations Blayais, Bugey, Fessenheim, Dampierre-en-Burly and Paluel (see map below).

Also on Wednesday a nuclear reactor at the Flamanville palnt in Normandy had to be shut down due to traces of corrosion having been spotted on back-up systems.

France gets the bulk of its electricity from nuclear generators. It is the world's most nuclear-dependent country, though it has pledged to cut its reliance on nuclear power, largely by shutting down its oldest reactors.

In 2014, flooding at its oldest plant, in Fessenheim near the German and Swiss borders, forced an emergency reactor shutdown. Anti-nuclear activists have long called for the shuttering of Fessenheim, which has been in operation since 1977.

The first new-generation nuclear power plant in the country's north, originally set to go online in 2012, has been hit by huge cost overruns and manufacturing problems, and is not expected to be ready until 2022.

Also targeted in the expanded campaign will be schools, businesses and shops within the enlarged radius, the ASN said.

heiko, diese ganzen selbsternannten facebook-politkritiker werfen dir ja immer wieder vor, du würdest geistig in einer völlig absurden, realitätsfremden parallelwelt leben. und offensichtlich auch dort dein amt ausüben... also tief im rektum des transatlantischen, militärisch-industriellen komplexes. wie kommen die denn da drauf? haste da mal ein aktuelles beispiel?

ah..danke. reicht.
