Japan to Build 350-Meter Wooden Skyscraper | Spoon & Tamago
Japanese builder and developer Sumitomo Forestry has teamed up with architecture firm Nikken Sekkei to construct a 350-meter (1148 ft) wooden skyscraper in Tokyo’s Marunouchi district right around Tokyo Station. Although still in conceptual stages, the company is aiming to complete “W350” by 2041, a date that would mark the 350th anniversary of the company. If completed, it would be the world’s tallest wooden structure and would even beat out Japan Abeno Harukas (300 meters) in Osaka, which currently holds the record of tallest building in Japan.

Using a hybrid 9:1 ratio of wood to steel, Sumitomo Forestry aims to replace concrete, which is one of the world’s largest carbon footprint contributors. The skyscraper would be a 70-floor mixed-use building that would include a hotel, office space, commercial space and residences. Wrap-around balconies at different intervals would be planted with lush wildlife. And greenery would extend throughout the entire complex, creating a vertical forest where humans and wildlife can flourish. As David Attenborough optimistically said in the final installment of Planet Earth II, “we are the designers of this environment. How, and whether we decide to invite the wildlife back, is up to us.”

Pilgrim's power reduced to 80 percent
Tropical storm Jose has been churning up the waters of Cape Cod Bay and creating operational problems for Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in the process.

Pilgrim operators reduced the reactor’s power to 80 percent of its maximum at 7 p.m. Wednesday due to rising ocean water temperatures. The temperature of the seawater used to cool the reactor cannot exceed 75 degrees under standards set by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

“We took action when it reached 71 degrees to ensure we did not challenge the limit,” said Patrick O’Brien, spokesman for Entergy, Pilgrim’s owner and operator.

Pilgrim draws up to 500 million gallons daily from Cape Cod Bay. The water cools the reactor and the turbine, passing through a network of thousands of tubes.

The seawater being discharged by the nuclear reactor is considerably hotter than the water drawn in — as much as 30 degrees hotter. The locations of the water intake structure and discharge structure at Pilgrim are separated by a jetty to help prevent the warm discharge water from migrating to the intake area and boosting the water temperature there.

“Previously, during storm monitoring, operations identified the potential for ocean conditions that would require preemptive actions and a power reduction as salt service water temperatures rose,” O’Brien said in his email. “Once predetermined criteria were met, operators commenced power reduction.”

Nuclear plants are about one-third efficient, explained David Lochbaum, director of the Nuclear Safety Program for the Union of Concerned Scientists.

“Of the three units of energy produced by the reactor core, one third goes out onto the transmission lines as electricity, and two thirds gets rejected to the nearby body of water,” Lochbaum said. “Reducing the reactor power level reduces the amount of heat energy carried away by the discharge flow, thus also reducing the amount of warm water sneaking around the jetty to re-enter the plant.”

The reactor will remain at reduced power until ocean temperatures allow for its return to full power operation, O’Brien said.
