March 11, 2011 14:46:24 and consequences

The Tohoku triple disaster- impact on Tokyo:

For period of several weeks there were frequent and strong after quakes, and great uncertainty over the nuclear fallout situation. Companies were faced with the decision whether to relocate away from Tokyo for business continuity reasons and care for employees, or to remain in Tokyo to continue business and customer service – we here at Eurotechnology stayed in Tokyo for our customers, and signed a contract with a Swiss customer (market entry into Japan for mobile phone base station high precision components) a few days after March 11. Based on deep expert physics knowledge we analyzed the radiation load in Tokyo, and we heard that many companies used our analysis as input for their relocation decision making. Some of our newsletters and analysis is summarized here:

Understanding the causes for the Fukushima nuclear disaster:

The Fukushima nuclear disaster was caused by a large number of contributing factors, starting with the preparations for the piece of land where the Fukushima Dai Ichi nuclear plant was built. Some of these factors are listed here:

US Integrated Government and NRC efforts in Japan during the nuclear Fukushima accident

A few days after March 11, 2011, US President Barak Obama sent a team of over 100 US nuclear experts for 11 months to Japan to work with Japan’s Prime Minister, Ministers and TEPCO leaders and on location at Fukushima Dai Ichi to assist with managing the nuclear disaster. Leader of this US integrated team was Dr Chuck Casto. Read summaries of Dr Chuck Casto’s talks on his conclusions here:

Restarting or not the world’s largest nuclear power station complex – Kashiwazaki Kariwa in Niigata (Japan)
