Two years ago, the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Station in Niigata Prefecture was exposed to serious deficiencies in anti-terrorism measures. I was given an explanation of what I was doing.
The Nuclear Regulation Authority pointed out issues such as inadequate improvements in equipment to detect intrusions from the outside.
Two years ago, the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant was exposed to a series of serious deficiencies in terms of counter-terrorism measures. I am doing an inspection.
On the 3rd, an inspection team from the Nuclear Regulation Authority visited TEPCO and interviewed President Kobayakawa and others.
President Kobayakawa reported on the progress of remedial measures aimed at preventing recurrence, while the inspection team pointed out that there was a lack of equipment to detect intrusion from the outside and a mechanism to voluntarily improve the problem. I pointed out that it was enough.
The Nuclear Regulation Authority expects to make a decision around spring this year based on additional inspections regarding the lifting of administrative dispositions, but Chairman Shinsuke Yamanaka said at a press conference on the 1st, "Additional inspections will be finalized. I'm in, but it's a pretty tough situation."
After the interview, President Kobayakawa said, "I received guidance again and it was helpful. I want to make improvements as soon as possible."
