» Abe urges TEPCO to scrap No. 5 and 6 reactors

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that he urged TEPCO to scrap No.5 and 6 reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.Abe made the request during his visit on Sept 19th to the Fukushima plant.

Of the plant’s six reactors, the utility is moving ahead to decommission the Nos. 1 to 4 units that suffered meltdowns or hydrogen explosions in the early days of the crisis, but it has not made clear what it will do with the remaining Nos. 5 and 6 reactors that managed to achieve a stable condition called a cold shutdown.
