The second Chernobyl: the story continues
A few weeks ago I wrote an articke on the complete flippancy of Ukrainian power plant "authorities" in the operational safety of their units:
To keep their illegal income, they began to supply low-quality non-certified equipment (cables) for the nuclear power units in repair. This fact was discovered at Zaporizhzhya NPP.
I then suggested that the same thing happens on other nuclear power plants. And now the press service of the SBU confirmed my fears.
The SBU said that they blocked the use of contraband equipment at the South Ukrainian NPP, which could have caused a technogenic catastrophe.
This was reported by the press service of the department.
The SBU operatives established that "the officials of the enterprise created conditions for an anthropogenic emergency situation at the South Ukrainian NPP."
"The investigation documented that officials deliberately purchased counterfeit electrical equipment for the systems that are crucial for safe operation of the nuclear power plant," points out the press service.
During the investigation, operatives discovered the fact of supply and installation of a power supply cable, the use of which is not provided for by current norms, rules and standards for nuclear and radiation safety.
"The State Inspectorate for Nuclear Regulation of Ukraine, the State Enterprise NNEGC Energoatom and the management of the South Ukrainian Nuclear Power Plant take immediate measures to deinstall and replace counterfeit equipment," the SBU added.
Law enforcers establish all the circumstances of the crime in order to bring all the guilty persons to criminal liability.
Note. I am sure that the same picture will be seen on the remaining two nuclear power plants in Ukraine. Officials of Energoatom completely lost fear and conscience and are now ready to risk the nuclear safety of the whole continent for a pullback. On the other hand, what do you expect from them. They're here not for long, and in case of something... there will be no one to ask questions. But for Europe, this is not the first bell ringing. In their place, I would draw conclusions.
