This is the emergency data system that was supposed to feed reactor data to SPEEDI. Back in 2010 TEPCO decided to not bother connecting the emergency data system to its emergency battery needed to run the system in a power outage.
TEPCO’s excuse…. the cable was too short.
TEPCO decided it wasn’t an urgent job at the time and then never bothered to address the issue.
This is on the heels of yesterday’s revelation that TEPCO severed an incoming power line 4 months before the March quake but never bothered to repair it.
This power line could have potentially provided electricity to the plant after the quake and tsunami had TEPCO bothered to repair it.
NISA stated that the emergency battery for the data system heightened the crisis. The data that could have been obtained in the window of time between the quake and tsunami could have
provided critical information for the government to act on…or not bother to pass on in a timely manner as all the other SPEEDI data was handled.
