Fukushima Nuclear Plant Photos
Fukushima is a nuclear power plant located in the town of Okuma in the Futaba District of Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, built in 1971.
The plant consists of six boiling water reactors.
These light water reactors have a combined power of 4.7 GW
Fukushima I is one of the 15 largest nuclear power stations in the world.
Fukushima I was the first nuclear plant to be constructed and run entirely by the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO).
The plant suffered major damage from the 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunami that hit Japan on March 11, 2011, disabling the reactor cooling systems and triggering a widespread evacuation surrounding the plant.
The gravity of the ongoing fires and meltdown of several of the plant’s reactors has sparked international concern that the disaster is heading towards becoming an environmental calamity similar to that suffered at Chernobyl in 1986.
International experts estimate that if a chain reaction is initiated in stored fissile material at the plant, it could affect an area up to 320 kilometres (200 mi) from the stricken nuclear complex.
The Fukushima II Nuclear Power Plant, 11.5 kilometres (7.1 mi) to the south, is also run by TEPCO.
The reactors for Units 1, 2, and 6 were supplied by General Electric, those for Units 3 and 5 by Toshiba, and Unit 4 by Hitachi.
All six reactors were designed by General Electric.
Architectural design for General Electric’s units was done by Ebasco.
The construction was done by Kajima.
Unit 3 has been fueled by mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel, rather than the low enriched uranium (LEU) used in the other reactors.
Units 1–5 were built with Mark I type (light bulb torus) containment structures,
Unit 6 has a Mark II type (over/under) containment structure.
Unit 1 is a 460 MW boiling water reactor (BWR-3) constructed in July 1967.
It commenced commercial electrical production on March 26, 1971, and was initially scheduled for shutdown in early 2011.
In February 2011, Japanese regulators granted an extension of ten years for the continued operation of the reactor.
It was damaged during the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.
