Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe Jerry Ashmore is misinformed. The Japanese use the concrete pump to pump water into the spent fuel ponds.

Initially, the pump from Savannah River Site, and another 70-meter Putzmeister now at a construction site in California, will be used to pump water -- and later will be used to move concrete.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
