San Onofre Whistleblower Cites “Potentially Catastrophic” Design Flaw

Inside source tells local news channel that cracked generator pipes at nuclear power plant could cause a full or partial meltdown

A former safety engineer with the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station is blowing the whistle on a “potentially catastrophic problem” at the currently offline Southern California Edison plan.

“There is something grossly wrong,” he told the news station.

Since Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) undertook a redesign of the generators in 2010 and 2011, the tubes that carry scalding water and steam from the generator have been crashing into one another creating cracks and “unprecedented tube failure.”

Of 19,400 tubes, a Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) report found more than 17 percent were damaged.

For the first time, a source from inside the San Onofre nuclear power plant has come forward to warn that restarting the power plant is too dangerous.

“There is something grossly wrong,” said the inside source, a safety engineer who worked at San Onofre and has 25 years in the nuclear field. [...]

He wants to remain anonymous because he told Team 10 he fears for his safety.

    Seems to be intentional. You know, how did Rahm Emanuel state it: “You can’t let a good crisis go to waste”.

    BS. Theyre not showing the alleged cracked pipes. Bad MHI design? Try bad US welders & engineers.
