TEPCO was again foiled by rats. A warning alarm went off in the electrical switching gear at the plant. Workers investigating the cause discovered a rat had urinated on the alarm wiring.
TEPCO has had multiple power outages caused by rats electrocuting themselves as they crawled into the replacement electrical switching equipment. Workers previously filled spaces in the electrical boxes where rodents could crawl in. A small entry space was found in this box. There was no loss of power due to this event.
