Corruption and Greed Pervade the Nuclear Industry and It's Captured "Regulators"

Read it all at this Google Doc sent by Captain D

In 2009, both Unit 2 RSGs were installed, tested, officially accepted and brought online. SCE was so pleased with how well their new RSG design performed that they immediately started talking about extending their lifespan to 60 years or more. Slight manufacturing changes were made when both of Unit 3 RSGs were manufactured. SCE believed these changes made them “better” (than Unit 2’s RSG’s) at converting reactor heat into the steam that drives the turbines connected to the generators that produce electricity.

SCE also installed new turbines, with newly designed higher efficiency TURBINE blades, to take advantage of the expected higher steam output of the new “like for like” RSGs. In 2010, Unit 3 RSG’s were installed, tested, officially accepted and brought online.

 SCE issued a press release on October 8, 2010, which stated, “We decided to replace the San Onofre plant’s steam generators when a cost-benefit assessment revealed the plan could save customers approximately $1 billion during the plant’s current license period, which runs through 2022, when power generated by the plant was compared to the likely cost of replacement power,” said SCE Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Alan Fohrer

Note: This analysis was performed during a 3½-year period by DAB Safety Team using “critical questioning and an investigative attitude” with the help of Global Experts based in USA/India pertaining to the Root Cause of in-plane fluid elastic instability (IPFEI) in San Onofre Unit 3 RSGs. Parts of these analyses have been shared with the NRC Commission, SCE, MHI and ALJ Melanie Darling’s appointed CPUC Safety Engineer. The NRC Commission, SCE, MHI and the CPUC have been unable to refute the findings of the DAB Safety Team.

 The DAB Safety Team: Don, Ace and a BATTERY of safety ­conscious San Onofre insiders plus industry experts from around the world who wish to remain anonymous. These volunteers assist the DAB Safety Team by sharing knowledge, opinions and insight but are not responsible for the contents of the DAB Safety Team's documents.

Our Mission: To prevent a Trillion Dollar Eco-Disaster like Fukushima, happening in the USA.

  1. Don and Ace are notorious antinukes who did not contribute to SONGS being shut down. The utility made the decision without their input. Jet setting nukist is in TX. Check out the IP. Any bbq suggestions?

    1. I would go for an official Texas style chili, no beans, no tomatos

      Captain D was instrumental in the shut down of San Onofre, now he is being instrumental is showing the world how corrupt the nuke industry is.
