» NRA will give approval for reactivation of Sendai plant

The Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) will give a stamp of safety approval as early as July 9 to two idled reactors at the Sendai Nuclear Power Plant in Kagoshima Prefecture, paving the way for Kyushu Electric Power Co. to restart the reactors this autumn.

Sources say the NRA will present a report on its safety review of the No. 1 and 2 reactors of the power plant in Satsumasendai, Kagoshima Prefecture, as early as July 9. The two reactors are likely to resume operations after public opinions are solicited and procedures for local consent are completed.
