Update on the Halden reactor release an exchange of views #IAEA #UNSCEAR
This is from the comments from the Halden nuclear incident report with some updated information. I would like to thank Peter for his input into this. The exchange was by far better than the attacks on Nils and myself on the Youtube video i did for my You tube subs. In fact I had to delete some of the responses because of the threatening and abusive nature on that video comments but I still left the ones that did try to offer some valid commentary though. I have the full report in Norwegian and am in the process of translating it. A quote from that report is to be found below. Shaun McGee aka arclight
Here is the exchange between myself and Peter on the topic;
This is not worrying at all! Get a grip!
The release was from a fuel rig withdrawn from the reactor. The release was of insignificant magnitude and moreover it is already over now. The “abnormal” or “very special condition” of the reactor is of no importance whatsoever for anyone outside the reactor. Due to the small power of the Halden core, the the decay heat easily diffuses to the surrounding. It will not boil dry, creating any problems.
You all have such strong imagination. Use it for something more constructive!

IFE spokesperson has confirmed in email that :
1) There has been no problems in the core.
2) There has been no unexpected increase of the neutron flux. Neutron detectors did show an increase but it was due to their characteristics, not due to a real increase of the flux. Other instruments have shown no changes in neutron flux.
3) There has been no problematic temperatures in the core. It is cooled by natural circulation.
4) The only problems they have encountered relate to a fuel test rig that had already been extracted from the core.
IFE is preparing a response to an article by Bellona in Halden newspaper.
You say that NRPA has revoked the licence of the Halden Reactor. Where do you get this from? I have found no mentioning of this anywhere. In fact IFE are preparing for starting up the reactor again…
You put your trust in this one person, Nils Bohmer. Well, even if you think he has such an integrity and skill in the field and really is a stand up kind of guy, what would he actually know in this case? He has no authority to make inspections at IFE! He has no video stream from the control room or detector stations at the site! He is just making wild guesses! This is no way to make good conclusions about factual matters on the state of the reactor. You need to go to IFE and NRPA! Stop putting all your faith in this guy. Confront him and ask for evidence for his claims!
You have a responsibility for what you say and the messages of others that you spread. Act accordingly. Don’t spread post-truth fake news.
