TRIP
NOTES
April
5-8
2011
The long
termnature
of
the
recovery
seemsto
be
well
understood,
with
an
appropriatesense
of
urgency
for
nearterm
actions.
Hosono
(assigned
by
PM
to
lead Fukushima
accident efforts
had
prepared
a
drafttime
line
document
and asked
forfeedback
from
NRC
team
leader
Casto
and
me. Most
ofour commentsconcerned
the
needfor
shortterm
stabilizationof
the
site,
remote
cooling
operations,
and
better
instrumentationwherever
possible.
Salt
removalwas
also
stressed
in
addition
to
rad
cleanup.
Parting
request
fromHosono-issue
a
press releasesupportive
of
the
oceanreleases.
I
had
told
him
that
I
believed
the
action wasessential
to
avoid
additionalcontamination.
Need
to
reinforceinfrastructureand
plan
for
remoteoperations
-I
discussed
this
in
many
meetings
and
there
was
general
agreement
that
thisneeds
to
be
done
quickly.
On
4/7,
TEPCO
stated
that
they
wouldhave
remoteoperation
of
the
giraffes ready
by
April 21.
Ambassadormust
either
reissue
the
evacuation
order
on
4/15
or
rescind
it.
The
SNL
team
there
is
doing
someworstcase analyses,
which
are
leading
to
a
pretty moderatefuture
threat.
The
evacuation
order
is
issued
in
30
day
increments.Ambassador
is
leaning
towards
rescission,
I
concurred
that
situation
is
stabilizing.Need
to
clearspace
in
spent
fuel
pools
for
handling
ofdamaged materials
-
NISA
has
cataloguedopen
SFP
space
throughout
Japan.
But
they
are
trying
to
avoid
use of
elevated
pools,
which
greatly
limits
their
options.
They
are consideringconstruction
of
a
new
SFP
near
iF.
Hosono
-
there
will
be
no
operation
ofunits
5
and
6
for
at
least
many
yearsdue
to
public
concern.
They
are
considering
a
tent
over
the
damaged
units
to
avoid
dustmovement
andminimize
rain.
The
PNNL
team
working oncooling issues
seems
to
be very
well
integrated
with
andaccepted
by
theJapanese
leadership.
I
discussed
with
the
PNNL
team
the
need
to
involve
other
labs
in
the
work, with
which
they
agreed.
In
several
meetings,
I
discussed
how
DOE
labs can
function
asan
honest
broker
to
critiqueindustrial
proposals.
There was
strong
interest
in
that
DOE
role.

~C
 
TEPCO:
theyare
rigging
a
water
sampling
system for
the
giraffes and
will
try
to get
SFP
samplessoon.
They
are
very
interested
in
water
injection into
the
gap
between
primary
containment
and
concrete
and
are
exploringuse
of
the
"leak
detection
line"
for
injection.
TEPCO
is
considering
various
optionsfor
Unit
2
to
stop the
apparent
torus
leak:
grout
the
entire torus
bldg(which
seemed
impossible
to
me),
develop
a
closed loop recirc
system fed
by
the
leaking
water
in
the
torus
area,
and
find
the
holeand
fix
it
robotically
(which
they
agree
is
rather
hard
to
imagine).
The
NYT
article
with
the
leaked
OUO
document
onstabilization
strategies
andpotential
worst
cases
was
unfortunate.
It
was
mentioned
in
manyof
my
meetings.
It
was recognized
that
theleaked
document
was severaldays
old
and
somewhat out
of
date,
but
the
leak
of
the
document
may have
impacted
the
level
of
trust
between
GOJ
and
US
entities
seeking
to
offerassistance.
In
many
cases,Japaneseleaders
were not
aware
of
papers
underdevelopment
by
DOE
and
the
consortium
with
NRC.
An
example
is
the
corrosion
paper, where
TEPCO
urgentlyneeds
advice
on
that
issue and
did
not
have
the
paper.
Maybe
these
papers
are
still
in
review,
or maybe
we
need
a
better
and
broader
distribution.
Mr.
Omoto,
NISA
Commissioner,
noted
that
the
calls
with
Kondo,
which
include
TEPCO
onthe
line
(I
was
not aware
that
TEPCO
was
present)
are
much
less
effective
than they
could
be
if
the
information
was
transmitted
by
emailwith minimal
discussion.
He
noted
that
the
English
language
skills
of most of
the
TEPCO
workers are extremely
limited.
JAEA
is
developing
mapsof
contaminated
areas
that
may be closed
to
agriculture.
Dr.
Suzuki
wants
any advice we have
on
Cs/Sr
cleanup
from
soils
and
Monica
Regalbuto has providedsome
suggestions.
Toshiba Proposal
-
lays
out
a
credible
short-
and long-termpathforsite
stabilization
and
recovery,
time
scales maybe
ambitious.
Large
teams
from Shaw,
B&W,
and
Westinghouse
(over
20
people)
are
working
with Toshiba.
GOJ,
especially
JAEA,
seemseager
to
use
the
AMS
capability
after the
DOE
teams
return home.
Thedaily
11
a.m.
meeting
including
NRC/TEPCO/NISA/DOE
seems
to
be
a
good
informationexchangewherequestions
can
beasked
ondetails
of
site
operations.
Issues
surrounding
flow
rate
and
containment
flooding on
Unit
I
were
confusing.
First
I
was
told
by
INPO
that
TEPCO
was
not
a
member
of
the
US
BWR
Owners Group
and
did
not
have access
to
the
US
SAMGs
(Severe
Accident
Management
Guidelines)
until
they
were
provided
by
the
INPO
team
weeks
after
the
quake.
Then
I
was
told
by
the
GE-Hitachi
team
that
TEPCO
is
a
member
