NCNUKE – NC NUKE.COM – 16/03/2011 [LINK]

An excellent work by ncnuke giving a lot of information about GE and TEPCO working together for putting an end to this crisis.

Ten truck-mounted gas turbines are on the way from GE.

 

 

[EXTRACTS]

Responding to a request today from TEPCO to deliver 10 GE truck-mounted gas turbineswhich can provide temporary power […]. Three of those 10 are ready in Florida and are awaiting air transport.

 


Under any normal circumstances diesel generators are perfectly capable and the most cost efficient.  This leaves a very low inventory of these highly expensive specialty mobile gas turbines.  Even this limited supply of mobile gas turbines is seldom in use.  GE Hitachi appears to be willing to move mountains to get this vital technology to the disaster sight.
