3/11: “Reactor 3 Steam Explosion “

09.08.2012

Video from March 14, 2012, around 11:01AM, explosion in the Reactor 3 building translated by EXSKF:

At ~1:15 in

Plant Manager Yoshida at 1F: HQ! HQ! It’s bad! It’s bad!

HQ: Yes!? Yes?

Yoshida: Reactor 3, probably steam explosion, it just happened!

HQ: (in a weak, almost disappearing voice) Alright… (someone else) O..OK.. Emergency communication…

[…]

HQ: That, that is the same as Reactor 1 [explosion], isn’t it?

Yoshida: Yes, in the building, inside the Anti-Seismic Building here, we can’t tell, but a side-way shake, clearly different from an earthquake, came, and there was no after-shake like in an earthquake. So I think this is an explosion, just like what happened in Reactor 1.

At 3:20 in

HQ (Probably Mr. Komori?, executive director, making a phone call to NISA): At 11:02AM, (was that 11:02?), at 11:02, in Reactor 3, there was a possibility of hydrogen explosion, we’ve been just informed by the plant. It’s the first report…

US Nuclear Regulatory Commission transcript excerpt from March 18, 2011:

CHAIRMAN JACZKO: […] Just go back one more time and, and look and see if you can’t come up with a, with what I would call a true worst-case scenario; namely, the worst-case that is physically possible.

TRISH HOLAHAN: Okay.

CHAIRMAN JACZKO: See if you can do that because I, I have to believe that there is no possibility in a light-water reactor design to reject an entire core. I mean, that’s basically steam explosion; isn’t it?

TRISH HOLAHAN: Yes.
