OT: Going Offline Again....and Hamaoka Plant Layout

Still moving. It's a protracted process... (Sigh). Have to test the DSL modem at the new place, but I'm sure Murphy will be there waiting.

For your entertainment while I'm gone, here's the plant layout and geological map for Hamaoka Nuclear Power Plant. Anything wrong with it? Green boxes are reactor buildings, blue boxes are turbine buildings. Both images are from http://onodekita.sblo.jp/article/45215822.html (in Japanese):



For comparison, here's Fukushima I's layout:

Let me guess, no tsunami wall at Hamaoka?

BTW, how about the radioactive bonyu? In Tokyo, no less....

isnt there supposed to be only 4 plants there?? i read in another article... or does 1 and 2 count as one??? did the tsunami hit here badly....?? reactor 5 looks a bit vulnerable....did the rock suffer liquification (its supposed to be a kind of sandstone i believe) wasnt there radioactive tea picked near here?....arghh ...did i miss anything??/ ....more questions than opinions....

There are 5 reactors at Hamaoka, 1,2 being decomissioned, 6th being planned.

One answer to "What's wrong with Hamaoka Nuke Plant?": Look at the location of the turbine buildings (blue boxes on the map). In Fukushima and any other nuke plant, turbine buildings are on the ocean side, partly no doubt to protect the reactor building if tsunami hits. Not so in Hamaoka. The reactor buildings will be hit first.
