Press Release (Dec 13,2013)First Progress Report: The Results of the Investigation and Examining on the Unidentified and Unsolved Matters of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident

On March 29, 2013, we published ‘A summary on the Fukushima Nuclear Accident and the Nuclear Safety Reform Plan,' and we have announced the progress on a regular basis.

On November 1, we published ‘A progress report on Nuclear Safety Reform Plan (FY2013 2nd Quarter)' and set it our target to separately examine and report on the unidentified and unsolved matters of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident.
We made a report on these issues, in response to our examining and the things pointed out in the Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee held on December 2. Today, we would like to announce the report.

We will continuously try to 1) reveal the whole pictures of the accident such as figuring out the behavior of the reactors at the point of the accident etc., based on a systematic on-site survey and a simulation analyses, and 2) make use of the whole pictures, in order to enhance the safety, which is our duty as a nuclear operator, and develop the decommission of reactors. Also, we will work on the nuclear safety reform, and announce our progress on these approaches on a regular basis.
