VIDEO: NRA orders utilities to check nuclear plant cables
Nuclear & Energy Jan. 6, 2016 – Updated 07:37 UTC-5
Japan’s nuclear regulators have urged Tokyo Electric Power Company to take the necessary steps to properly lay electrical cables for the main safety equipment in the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant.
The reactors at the plant in Niigata Prefecture on the Japan Sea coast are currently offline after the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident.
Last year, at least 1,700 safety-related cables were found to have been jointly laid with other cables under the floor of the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant’s central control room and in other areas.
New government requirements introduced after the nuclear accident require safety-related cables to be installed separately for fire management.
On Wednesday, the Nuclear Regulation Authority said the way the electrical cables are installed could cause the plant’s safety functions to go down.
The authority concluded that this violates the new requirements and instructed TEPCO to take necessary measures.
It also ordered the utility to inspect whether proper installation procedures have been followed for the other main safety equipment.
Similar problems have been identified at 5 other nuclear plants across the country.
The authority called on all nuclear plant operators to conduct probes and report by the end of March.
