FUKUSHIMA, Japan — TEPCO announced today that it has officially decided to decommission all of the four units at Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Station.
As announced on June 14, 2018, TEPCO had been considering this step since last year—in conjunction with the decommissioning of Fukushima Daiichi—in order to make the inhabitants of local communities feel safer. The decision was made following a thorough consideration of various issues affecting both Fukushima Daiichi and Daini, including the securing of the necessary human resources, the safe decommissioning of the two power stations and the impact on our business. We also took into account the wishes of local residents for decommissioning of the entire plant.
Going forward, TEPCO will explain to local communities how it plans to process the decommissioning work of Fukushima Daini in an easily understood way, aiming to proceed with their full understanding. TEPCO will continue to make sincere efforts to safeguard the wellbeing of everyone in the region with regard to both Fukushima Daini and Fukushima Daiichi.
