Being new to this site I was happily surprised by the TMI link at the bottom. Thank you for all of this info. Cool stuff.
A great read, thank you. However I do believe its quite unfair to compare the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant to the new deal that they have arrived with the government of Turkey. The plans indicate a Generation III nuclear plant, whereas the Fukushima plan was a Generation II.
What, exactly, does this mean? Well for starters the new generation of reactors have longer operating life. They also have a simpler design which makes them easier to operate and are therefore less vulnerable to operational upsets. The efficiency of these reactors have also increased over the years.
Other than that it was a great read, thanks again.
