STOP HINKLEY : Hi Theo
I read this today in a book by J A Wheeler. He was a physicist and friend and collaborator with Einstein, Niels Bohr, etc.etc. He was also one of the first to advise on the building of nuclear power stations in the US. He writes about how the decisions on the safe distance of power stations from human habitation was arrived at. He is thinking of the worst case scenario of complete meltdown followed by dispersion of radiation by wind and writes that we are… 'safe from any death-dealing exposure to radiation if only the power plant is separated from the city by 8 kilometres when the power level is 250 megawatts or 16 kilometres when the power level is 1000 megawatts, or more generally the safe distance is proportional to the square root of the power level. This square root principle was used in serving the distance of the General Electric reactor and has been used in one way or another ever since.'
I understand that Hinkley C is a three thousand two hundred and sixty megawatt (3260MW) plant and would thus require a separation distance just over 57 kilometres (by my calculation of the square root of 3260). Obviously if the other two reactors are factored in this would increase this distance proportionally.
I guess the conclusion is obvious. Hello Tsunami, goodbye Somerset.
See you soon
