Fukui Gov Issei Nishikawa said Tuesday he believes adequate safety measures are in place at the Oi nuclear power plant.
Nishikawa made the comments after a three-hour visit to the plant in Fukui Prefecture. The central government is planning to restart the plant's No. 3 and No. 4 reactors after it gets Nishikawa's approval, which is expected to come later this week.
Nishikawa told reporters he believes plant operator Kansai Electric Power Co has beefed up safety standards to enable the plant to safely withstand an earthquake as powerful as the one that struck the Tohoku last year, NTV reported.© Japan Today
