Other Fukushima Nuclear Plant to be Scrapped
Tokyo Electric Power Company has officially announced that it will scrap the Fukushima Daini nuclear plant. The plant is one of two in the prefecture. The other is the Daiichi plant that was crippled in the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
The plant is located about 12 kilometers south of Fukushima Daiichi. The plan marks a major turning point for the utility.
TEPCO President Tomoaki Kobayakawa visited Fukushima Governor Masao Uchibori on June 14th.
The governor says it's the residents' strong wish to have all nuclear reactors in the prefecture scrapped.
Kobayakawa says his company intends to start making specific plans to that end, and is planning to decommission all reactors at the Fukushima Daini plant.
