The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Dangers of nuclear fissile materials transported by sea

Robin Des Bois 29th June 2017, [Machine Translation] Next week, MOX fuel should be loaded at Cherbourg on
the Pacific Egret or Pacific Heron to Japan and the Takahama nuclear power
plant. The MOX contains 10% plutonium and 90% uranium.

This journey throughthe seas of the world of dangerous fissile materials induces tensions and
risks throughout the journey. The problem of safe havens in case of damage
or fire is still unresolved. The ability of Pacific Nuclear Transport
Ltd.’s small ships to withstand North Korean cyclones, tsunamis and
missiles is not demonstrated.

But it is the business as usual that continues for Areva and for a French nuclear industry without guard crazy
besides being penniless. Perpetuating small business as in the good old
days before Fukushima means avoiding questioning the reprocessing plant for
irradiated fuel and plutonium mining in La Hague, which the Nuclear Safety
Authority and the unions say Since 2 years that it is in a worrying state
in terms of safety.

Areva’s transports always give the marines of the whole
world the opportunity of exercises for the most underwater. Our first
advice is therefore aimed at fishermen and especially trawlers. They must
deviate widely from the convoy to eliminate any risk of hook with a
submarine, hypothesis more and more plausible to explain the sinking of the
Bugaled Breizh in January 2004, a few days before the departure of
Cherbourg of a cargo of waste Nuclear activities to Japan.
