Messages from Chief Decommisioning Officer
For us at TEPCO, the decommissioning of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in a safe and proper manner is one of the fundamental goals we must accomplish in order to restore the environment and revitalize the local industries in Fukushima as swiftly as possible.
The Fukushima Daiichi Decontamination and Decommissioning Engineering Company, which has been established as of April 1, 2014, will focus on decommissioning operations and countermeasures for contaminated water, employing not only TEPCO's own skills, experience, and human resources but also the wisdom of various research institutes and companies both in Japan and overseas. In addition, through information disclosure from the plant and the application of research and development after decommissioning, we will utilize the lessons learned from the accident in order to advance the safety of nuclear power throughout the world.
TEPCO employees and cooperative workers have been working in a challenging environment on a project accompanied by dangers and difficulties. Securing safety and improving working conditions for every person engaged in operations, over the coming 30 to 40 years, or for as long as the project lasts, is also a vital part of our mission.
