» Nuclear plant in Kyusyu is first candidate to restart among 48 Japan’s commercial reactors

Nuclear Regulation Authority decided on March 13th to prioritize the safety review of two reactors at Kyushu Electric Power Co.’s Sendai plant in southwestern Japan, making them potentially the closest to being allowed to restart among Japan’s 48 offline commercial reactors.

A total of 17 reactors at 10 nuclear power plants are currently undergoing inspections to determine whether they satisfy a set of new safety requirements introduced after 2011 nuclear disaster.

But the Nuclear Regulation Authority has decided to narrow down the number of reactors on which it will place priority so that it can efficiently finish its first safety checkup process based on the new regulations.
