Ukraine Attacks Nuclear Power Plant AGAIN; Cooling Lines Ruptured!

The armed forces of Ukraine have fired artillery shells again at the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power plant.  The shells hit, and ruptured, Reactor colling lines.  Photos below:

So.....it's a cooling line (isolated from the core, and no ratiation release risk).

And the only consequence is.......Ukraine's largest powerplant can no longer supply UKRAINE with power.

Well.....WHO benefits from that?

Now......being where we are.....let's all studiously ignore that and say 'false flag'.

Quoting KarGiver:
...to damaging a nuclear power plant's cooling system.


The plant has been in cold shutdown for weeks.

Two of the 6 reactors were shutdown in Feb.
A third was shutdown in early summer.
A forth at the start of August. A fifth at the start of Sep.
The last reactor was shutdown on Sep 10.

ONE cooling line was damaged....to a shutdown reactor. There is no immediate danger.


"https://www.tasnimnews.com/en/news/2022/09/11/2772925/last-power-unit-switched-off-at-zaporozhye-nuclear-plant"

"Ukrainian state-owned company Energoatom has also confirmed the so-called ‘cold shutdown’ of the last unit, with the Zaporozhye facility coming to a complete halt."


There's a decent history of the plant's operation since the invasion here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crisis_at_the_Zaporizhzhia_Nuclear_Power_Plant

"On 11 September, after grid connection was repaired by the plant's staff, the external power was used to safely shut down that last reactor, after which all plant's reactors are in cold shut down mode which minimizes the risk of damage as Russia refused to create a demilitarized zone around the plant."

How much longer do we have to wait for the USELESS Putin to DO SOMETHING about this? WTF is the matter with that stoooopid prick?

Seriously, these people are like rabid dogs. And they should be treated the same way. Enough already.

Russia needs to pull out all the stops
and go full throttle against Ukraine.
That Hell hole is out of control and
piss on NATO,, take them out also
if they want some of it.

Redundant cooling I pray.
The US Westinghouse designs are bad enough, I hope that the Russians design better plants than the US does.

IMO, what was coming this way is here and will very very soon land on our shores!!!!

These terms can be confusing. There is a hot and cold side of the cooling lines with the heat exchanger being the divider.

The radioactive water/material is between the reactor and the heat exchanger. The heat is exchanged to clean water at the heat exchanger and it is circulated to the outside for further cooling.

The cooled radioactive water is recirculated back to the reactor for another cycle.

What we're seeing could well be the "clean" coolant water which is normally reintroduced back into the "world" once its cooled to a nominal or normal temperature.

I don’t believe those are the cooling lines for the reactor/reactors. Maybe some other supply line. Look at the condition and exposure of the line. If in fact those are coolant lines there is a major breach happening right now.

Agreed, pipes not in good condition.
No cooling towers at this facility it seems and you can see in the last two images the sprays in the background so they are using a much simpler way of evaporative cooling. Perhaps not as efficient as a cooling tower but much cheaper and not as big of an eye sore.
