» Monju skipped inspections of 2300 devices

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency, the operator of the Monju prototype fast-breeder nuclear reactor said on June 21st that it had skipped inspections of another 2,300 pieces of equipment during a safety inspection carried out by the Nuclear Regulation Authority between June 3 and Friday.

JAEA was already found to have failed to conduct inspections at appropriate intervals on nearly 10,000 devices. As a result, the order was issued to prohibit the Monju reactor from restarting until steps are taken to prevent a recurrence. Series of failures show the latest sign of its lax safety management of JAEA.
