Seabrook 2009-2

The Seabrook plant, New Hampshire has not had any serious atomic accidents that I know of yet (2015).

Over viewEdit

It is a statistical overview list of the world's major atomic power station, test reactors, filled atomic flask transportation, storage facilities, fuel rod manufacturing and recycling depot accidents.

Former nations have the current nation relevant to the incident in brackets beside them, ie: Czechoslovakia (Slovakia).

Interwiki links go to the pages of those who indices occurred during the Cold War.

The article's scopeEdit

It covers the world's over INES rating 4 atomic power station, test reactors, filled atomic flask transportation, storage facilities, fuel rod manufacturing and recycling depot accidents.

  • It dose not cover-
  1. Lost, abused and damaged medical devices,industrial isotope scanners, industrial radio-sterilising devices or isotope capsules.
  2. Accidents in uranium mines and particle accelerators.
  3. Scavaging radioactive junk without due regard, knowledge or moral intent.
  4. Eeither broken arrow nuke accidents and lost nukes.
