      The vast costs of nuclear decommissioning in the UK are largely due to the reckless and dirty weapons programmes of the fifties and sixties. Nuclear power decommissioning is a walk in the . Hence, chances for another disaster grow. 3. Finally, the long-term waste disposal problem has yet to be solved for nuclear power, and decommissioning costs are still highly uncertain. The minimum safety . In Japan, he says, around engineers work on safety for all the nation’s nuclear power stations; whereas in Germany the figure is 50 for each power station.

Those responsible for operating or regulating nuclear reactors bought into a myth of % safety and this collective failure left them unprepared to deal with an accident or worst-case scenario.

Paradoxically, this safety myth explains why TEPCO lacked a culture of safety. The challenge to select and assess the outstanding events of the year for the release of the July edition of the World Nuclear Industry Status Report turned out to be particularly tough:.

Nuclear reactors are clustered with pairs, quadruplets or even planned clusters with six reactors located at a single site.

The reason is often logistical because of benefits of scale, optimal cooling water. Guest Post by Axel Lieber.
