Japan: Decommissions 2 More Reactors

Views: 259
Kansai Electric Power Co.,
. . . is set to decommission the first large-scale reactors,
. . . outside of Fukushima Prefecture,
. . . since the 2011 nuclear disaster,
. . .a move that could affect the government’s Basic Energy Plan.

The utility apparently decided,
. . . that it would not be worth the effort, and money,
. . . to upgrade and continue operating,
. . . the aging No. 1 and No. 2 reactors,
. . . at the Oi nuclear plant in Oi, Fukui Prefecture.

Each reactor has the capacity to generate 1.175 gigawatts.
