"I don't understand why, given the presence of lots of steam (that you don't want) during such an event there isn't a system in place to use it to pump feedwater at high pressure."|
Because that would require power.
I think they do not have a direct line of power to this site.
Normally, the back up power for pumps and systems like you described would come from multiple generators made to take over in such an event.
I think it's obvious that the generators have been rendered useless. Otherwise, they wouldn't be trying to pump seawater into the thing.
