TEPCO may decommission the Fukushima Daini nuclear units

The facility includes four nuclear reactors, with a combined capacity of 4,268 MW.

The Japanese nuclear company TEPCO is mulling over the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant, located 11 km south of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in the Fukushima prefecture of Japan.

Even if this proposition is strongly supported by Fukushima residents, no official decision has been taken so far and the plant’s status remains uncertain.

The Fukushima Daini facility includes four nuclear reactors, with a combined capacity of 4,268 MW (4,400 MW gross). Although located in the neighbourhood of the Fukushima Daiichi plant, they were not damaged by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. They have been maintained in cold shutdown since then.
