AtomInfo.Ru, PUBLISHED 10.02.2015

The Kyushu Electric Power has notified the nuclear regulatory agency (NRA) of Japan that the paperwork required to re-start the Sendai nuclear power plant will be ready by the end of March.

A company representative Akira Nakamura said that the documentation on the first unit will be completed at the end of February, the second at the end of March.

In October-November 2014 the Governor and legislative assembly of Kagoshima prefecture and municipal council of the city of Satsuma-Sendai located near the plant have expressed its support of the return of the plant into operation.

According to the informed sources, which are quoted in the Japanese press, re-commissioning of the plant may occur in June 2015.

The Sendai NPP consists of two units with PWR reactors with a power of 846 MWe each. This is a three-loop reactor project M (provider - MHI).
