Tepco may scrap Fukushima plant
TOKYO: Japan’s Tepco said it may scrap an operable nuclear power plant near its ruined Fukushima Dai-Ichi station amid sustained regional opposition to its use following the 2011 disaster. The utility said yesterday that it’s looking to permanently shut the four units at Fukushima Dai-Ni at the request of governor
Masao Uchibori during a meeting with the Tepco’s president. Dai-Ni survived the damage it sustained from the 2011 tsunami that wrecked the Dai-Ichi plant and has been offline in a “cold shutdown”.
