» TEPCO expects to restart a nuclear plant in Nigata next July

TEPCO expects its idled nuclear plant in Niigata Prefecture to restart in July next year.

Under the existing restructuring plan compiled last year, TEPCO projected restarting several reactors in April or later this year to improve its tough business conditions.

TEPCO applied for state safety inspections of the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant’s Nos. 6 and 7 reactors in late September, seeking to resume their operations in April next year. But the checkup process by nuclear regulators is not yet in full swing amid concerns over poor capability of managing the Fukushima plant.
