TEPCO Plans to Deliver N-Fuel to Central Japan Plant in April

TEPCO Plans to Deliver N-Fuel to Central Japan Plant in April

   Tokyo, March 28 (Jiji Press)--Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc. on Thursday submitted a plan to deliver nuclear fuel to the No. 7 reactor at its idled Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant in central Japan as early as April 15.
   TEPCO is seeking approval of the plan from the Nuclear Regulation Authority. It is still uncertain whether the 1.35-million-kilowatt reactor can be restarted because such a move requires the consent of local governments.
   At the power plant in Niigata Prefecture, the No. 6 and No. 7 reactors in 2017 passed the NRA's regulatory review needed to restart operations.
   But later, a series of problems with its antiterrorism measures came to light, leading the regulatory watchdog to issue a de facto ban on the operations of the power plant.
   After conducting additional inspections from October 2021, the NRA lifted the ban in December last year, confirming an improvement in the situation at the plant.
