» Nuclear Watchdog to analyze unanswered questions of nuclear accidents

The Nuclear Regulation Authority had an inaugural meeting to analyze causes of Fukushima No.1 accident on May 1st 2013.

The Japanese government, the Diet and other parties set up their own individual investigation to study about causes of the nuclear accident.Although each research group released their respective reports by July 2012, many aspects of the disaster remain unclear.The NRA plans to focus its inquiry on those issues that the panels failed to agree upon.During the May 1 meeting, the NRA presented a list of unresolved issues from the reports. Studies were started immediately on two of them: If the “isolation condensers,” or key cooling equipment for the No. 1 reactor, were damaged, and what caused the hydrogen explosion in the No. 4 reactor building.
