"The ‘defense-in-depth’ approach for nuclear power plants is based on multiple layers of safety through redundant systems and equipment.”

-not so much with the GE Mark I reactors as we found out with Fukushima, and we still have another Mark I running in Vernon

Remember the "GE Three" ??
They quit GE in protest over that badly flawed Lemon of a design reactor and were blackballed by GE
And we have almost 2 dozen Mark I's still running in the US, VY in Vernon Vermont and Pilgrim in Mass are 2 of them
Three Mark I's melted down at the Fukushima Daiichi facility

[How time flies- Tomorrow is the second anniversary of the three General Electric Mark I reactors melting down at Fukushima Japan]
'Fukushima Workers: Smoke was pouring out of Unit 1 before tsunami hit —“No doubt” the quake crippled reactors'

Several of the workers also said the plant’s No 1 reactor was critically damaged by the quake even before the tsunami hit – a revelation that, if proven, would torpedo Japan’s attempts to swiftly restart its 50 stalled nuclear reactors.
I've posted articles in 2011 and last year on the evidence that the 9.0 earthquakelon caused the problems leading to the meltdowns of the three GE Mark I reactors. It means that even if the subsequent tsunami hadn't occured we Still would have seen the reactors melt down

So big deal they might of had a LOCA, if they had power they should have easily overcome it with the big pumps...

I'd believe nothing out of Japan with Fukushima...

Al these angles have an anti or pro nuke spin on them...

idiot! read the articles, the info on the pre-tsunmai smoke at Unit 1 And the pre-tsunami cracked pipes were both WITNESSED by the Fukushima WORKERS, this doesn't come from anti-nukers

Most of the outside of the control room worker was uneducated contract workers.

Sorry, you don't know how a nuke plant can't interpret what they are saying though expensive education....

They had turbine pumps...HPCI and RICI... for more than 12 to 24 hours cooling the plant. This indicated the shaking wasn't bad enough to destroy all cooling pipes, pumps or damage the plant's electricity system. even the flood didn't damage the equipment yet. There wasn't a lot of damage inside the plant, maybe a recirc loop sheared or something.

If you had power the fuel survived intact.

The NRC:

The operators were faced with a catastrophic, unprecedented emergency situation. They had to work in nearly total darkness with very limited instrumentation and control systems. The operators were able to successfully cross-tie the single operating Unit 6 air-cooled diesel generator to provide sufficient ac electrical power for Units 5 and 6 to place and maintain those units in a safe shutdown condition, eventually achieving and maintaining cold shutdown.
Despite the actions of the operators following the earthquake and tsunami, cooling was lost to the fuel in the Unit 1 reactor after several hours, the Unit 2 reactor after about 71 hours, and the Unit 3 reactor after about 36 hours, resulting in damage to the nuclear fuel shortly after the loss of cooling. Without ac power, the plants were likely relying on batteries and turbine-driven and diesel-driven pumps. The operators were likely implementing their severe accident management program to maintain core cooling functions well beyond the normal capacity of the station batteries. Without the response of offsite assistance, which appears to have been hampered by the devastation in the area, among other factors, each unit eventually lost the capability to further extend cooling of the reactor cores.

So from March 29 to March 30...they reduced power from 94% power to 84% power for safety reasons..this dog just severely picked up the level of leaking...
