From Kuba Danecki on Flickr. If you look closely, you can see that the CC8800 is moving. Dismantling of BT-2 (old pipe) should start very soon.

The dismantling of the old ventilation stack (BT-2) will start tomorrow (29/10/2013). It should lasts several days, if not weeks. Expect more pics/videos in the next few days.

Update from ChNPP. The dismantling of the old pipe has been delayed for safety concerns. No new date has been set.

Any chance that we can order one of these things for Fukushima?

I tried to make a timelapse of yesterday's operations, sadly the ChNPP server hosting the new webcam has some streaming issues, which made me miss the most important moment of the day.

Anyway, if you're interested, I also made timelapses of almot each day since that webcam has been up. But the streaming server also has been having issues since day 1, so none of them are really good. Hopefully they'll solve this soon.

They added another ventilation stack, so once the old one is gone, most people won't even notice. When the NSC will be in place however, it'll be quite a change.

In other news, the second block was removed today.




And here's a timelapse of the last two days (better quality than the last time).

Each block is "temporarily" stored inside the turbine hall of unit 3. The blocks are obviously very radioactive (someone from forum.pripyat.com said the first block's radiation is 3 roentgens per hour, which would be dangerously high), so yes decontamination will follow, but I don't have any more information on that.

Thank you you're a mind of information

Obviously this project is about safely containing and dismantling the destroyed reactor 4 but what the plan for the rest of the power station, are the other reactors just being decommissioned as we would expect on a standard site or is there a separate plan since the building I assume are more radioactive than a normal site?

The decommissioning plan isn't too affected by the background radioactivity, but Ukraine can't really afford to decommission 3 reactors while trying to avoid another disaster at reactor 4. They actually started to build a facility to store spent fuel (ISF-2) in 1999, but design issues led it to be unusable. The current plan is to fix those issues and restart work, but money is tight, and most of it goes toward the NSC at the moment. In the meantime, spent fuel is stored in ISF-1, which is an old and dilapidated storage pool.
