Briefing Sheet Fukushima Daiichi
Units 1, 2, and 3 reactors appear to be in a static condition. Seawater injection to the reactor coolant systems (via fire trucks) is continuing. Containment integrity status is uncertain for all 3 units. Report of steam coming from Unit 2. Reports of smoke from Unit 3 due to potential oil fire (Source: INPO). Unit 1 feedwater thermocouple reading 720 degrees F; and reactor lower head temperature is 741 degrees F (may not be reliable). AC power cables installed from a nearby transmission line to Units 1&2. TEPCO is working to establish power to necessary cooling equipment (U2 first). Electrical power has been restored to the Unit 3 control room (Source: NHK World). Power cables connected to a load center in Unit 4. External AC power restored to Unit 5 and 6. Unit 6 diesel generators running. RHR pumps providing cooling to both Units 5&6. 480 VAC power has been restored to portions of all 4 units, but limited capability to operate any equipment at this time. Multi-day trending of all available dose rate information shows slightly declining levels. Some indications of trace but detectable amounts of 1-131 are being reported at some nuclear plants in the U.S. (Ginna and Nine Mile). Region I is being asked to get more detail. Coordinating with NARAC and interagency partners on assumptions and key messages for dose assessments from the "Bounding Reasonable (Source Term) Model" and a more conservative, extreme source term model, including next steps. Industry Consortium call established for 10:00 am each day. Priorities include establishing a method for US industry to interact with TEPCO (INPO representative scheduled to arrive in Tokyo 3:00 pm JDT March 23) and offering longer-term solutions for core and spent fuel pool cooling. Two shipments of the first train of Bechtel-designed equipment arrived at Yokota Air Base today. There is a third shipment of components for this train that will be shipped on Thursday, as the fittings etc are still being fabricated. NRC initiated request to identify another U.S. Government agency to coordinate equipment support logistics, funding, etc. 9:00 pm call with PMT, Embassy, and DOD on PA recommendations. 9:00 pm call with RST and TEPCO. Call will be primarily focused on salt, hydrogen, and criticality issues. RST is providing assistance to TEPCO following their request for analysis of when lower core will be filled with salt, and means to mitigate this, including criticality issues.
