TEPCO to scrap Fukushima Nos. 5, 6 reactors - The Japan News

Tokyo Electric Power Co. President Naomi Hirose revealed in an interview with The Yomiuri Shimbun on Saturday the company’s plans to decommission the Nos. 5 and 6 reactors at its Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

In the interview, Hirose said the two reactors will never again be used for power generation.

The permanent shutdown of the Nos. 5 and 6 reactors was a demand made to the company by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to speed up the decommissioning work of the plant’s crippled Nos. 1-4 reactors.
As a result, all six reactors at the plant will be decommissioned.
