The power plant was designed to withstand the height of a tsunami, following the tsunami that occurred in 2011 due to the Great East Japan Earthquake.

“Going forward, we will operate the power plant while prioritizing coexistence with the local community and safety. We will seek to contribute to the achievement of a decarbonized society in cooperation with local residents and other stakeholders,” Renova said.
