The NPP Fukushima again jumped dramatically the level of radiation

In the basement of the 2nd Japanese nuclear reactor emergency, "Fukushima-1" reiterated the high radiation. The level of accumulated water in the basement is more than 6 meters.
"As a result of measurements inside the building before the unit was established that the level of radiation in water flooding the basement up to 430 millisieverts per hour", — reported today by representatives of the operator station of Tokyo Electric Power. Experts believe that such a sharp increase in the radiation zone of the 2nd reactor, fixed for the first time after the March disaster, may be associated with leakage of radioactive materials from the damaged lower chamber to maintain the pressure. But this should not privsti to failure today technical work with the liquidators.
On Monday, the operator NPP "Fukushima-1" has completed an operation to open the double doors of the building of the 2nd reactor to reduce the humidity from 99 percent to 70 percent. This has created the conditions for entry to the premises and the use of specialist robots there had previously been difficult due to the heat and thick steam. In the near future the power company is going to start preparing for the injection of nitrogen into the reactor to cool it down and prevent another hydrogen explosion. Before opening the door of Unit 2 operating company last week completed a series of decontamination of air, which also significantly reduced the radiation background, ITAR-TASS reported.
