» Hokuriku Electric Power submitted documents for nuclear plant safety check-up

Hokuriku Electric Power Co. submitted documents to nuclear regulators required for safety reviews of a reactor at its nuclear power plant in Shika, Ishikawa Prefecture.

Among Japan’s 10 entities which own nuclear power plants, Hokuriku Electric is the last to file such documents on the No. 2 reactor at the plant, the 20th reactor at 13 plants across the country subject to safety reviews under new safety standards introduced following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear crisis.

It aims to complete seismic strengthening work for the reactor building by the end of next March but it is undecided over when it plans to restart the reactor.
