Japan Closer to Restarting First Reactors Since Fukushima

00:09 Apr 10 2012 Japan

Japan took another step toward restarting its first nuclear reactors since the Fukushima disaster, trying to avert electricity shortages this summer that could set back the country’s economic recovery.

Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda and three of his Cabinet members -- the group of four with the final say on reactor restarts -- held talks last night on switching on two Kansai Electric Power Co. (9503) reactors that have passed so-called stress tests introduced after the Fukushima meltdowns. Noda’s group “basically” approved the company’s safety measures for its reactors, the Nikkei reported today, citing Industry Minister Yukio Edano.
