Japan goes nuclear again, but with only two reactors - so far
The Japanese nuclear industry came to a halt in May 2012 when the last of its 54 reactors was taken off line. The shutdown of all the country’s plants started in the wake of the disaster at Fukushima in March 2011. Two months later, on July 1, 2012, one of those reactors, at Oi, has gone back on line, but while others may follow, there appears little appetite for a return to the large ‘nuclear village’ of old.
POWER shortages are an anathema to households and businesses in Japan. It is a country that concentrates all its efforts on efficient, stable and safe day-to-day operation, rather than on coping with exceptions.
