This is the first time since the rule of “40 years in principle, 20 years at the longest” was established after the accident at TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. It will be officially decided soon and the process will be announced.

However, the construction of the anti-terrorism facility required for the nuclear power plant has been delayed, and if it cannot be completed, it will be stopped again by October 25, the deadline for installation. In this case, the operating period is only about 4 months.
