Kansai Electric Power Company Takahama Nuclear Power Plant Units 1 (back) and Unit 2 = Takahama Town, Fukui Prefecture

Kansai Electric Power Company’s Takahama Nuclear Power Plant Units 1 and 2 (Takahama Town, Fukui Prefecture), which have been in operation for more than 40 years, will be installed on the 9th without completing the “specific serious accident response facility” (special heavy facility) for terrorism measures. The deadline has been reached. Kanden has not indicated the outlook, saying that the facility will be completed under scrutiny. In the future, work will begin to move the nuclear fuel contained in the Unit 1 reactor to the fuel pool.

Special heavy-duty facilities are required to be installed under the new regulatory standards in order to prevent serious accidents even if they are attacked by terrorist attacks using aircraft. It is required to install an emergency control room and power supply equipment at a distance of 100 meters or more from the reactor building.
