Kansai Electric responds to NRA's decision
A senior official at the operator of the Ohi plant said he felt humbled by the Nuclear Regulation Authority's decision to allow the 2 reactors to stay online.
Shigeki Otsuka from the Kansai Electric Power Company said the company would not merely meet the demands of the authority, but would go further by aiming for a world-class level of safety.
The authority had earlier criticized the utility for proposing safety measures in a piecemeal fashion, as if trying to find the minimum line to be cleared to meet new safety standards that take effect in July.
Otsuka says his company had no such intention. But he added that it would take the criticism seriously in an effort to do even better.
