Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima
We feel very sad for the people of Japan who want to end nuclear energy whilst a potential new government and big business are desperate for it

No Fukushima at Oldbury

Sizewell ---Abnormal readings?

Sizewell shutdown probe


Last updated: 25/03/2010 08:57:00

An investigation is today under way after energy bosses were forced to shut down Sizewell B, it has been revealed.

The nuclear reactor, on the Suffolk coast south of Southwold, was taken offline last Wednesday after abnormal readings in the containment building sparked further inquiries.

The incident is expected to cost EDF Energy, which operates Sizewell B, hundreds of thousands of pounds.

EDF spokesman Gordon Bell said that the shutdown was “perfectly normal” and posed no safety risks.

Then you can have your say.

Sign up nowand we plan to build more civilian nuclear power stations? the history of civilian nuclear power is littered (literally and metaphorically) with the detritus of incidents of breaches of saftey etc which only come to light years if not decades after the event... secrecy is the normal 'best practice' in the nuclear industry

So according the EDF having "abnormal readings" in the containment is "perfectly normal". I don't think that the plant should be allowed to reopen until local people have been given a full explanation of what happened so that we do not have to wait several years to find out the truth as happened with the Sizewell A cooling pond incident.
