The Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Station Unit No.6 (ABWR: 1,356MW) had been shut 
down since the Niigata-Chuetsu-Oki Earthquake occurred on July 16, 2007. On August 25, 
2009, we started a series of functional tests for the entire plant, and are performing 
pre-planned tests. 

The unit began generating power on August 31, and is keeping constant operation at 
rated thermal output. We have performed pre-planned tests, and confirmed operating 
status to be satisfactory by 2:00 p.m. of September 14. 

Based on the results of the tests, we will continue operating at constant rated 
thermal output and will perform the pre-planned tests carefully.

We will disclose test evaluation results accordingly.
