  Overseas Network, November 22nd According to news from Japan’s NHK television station on the 22nd, Iran’s nuclear power plant No. 3 unit was previously out of service due to frequent failures. After formulating relevant countermeasures and obtaining local understanding, Japan’s Shikoku Electric Power Company announced the restart of the nuclear power plant in December.

The No. 3 unit of the Iranian nuclear power plant opened for regular inspections in December 2019. After that, there were frequent failures. It was also found that standby personnel violated security regulations and went out without authorization. Shikoku Electric Power Co., Ltd. formulated relevant measures and explained the situation to the governments of Ehime Prefecture and Ikata Town where the nuclear power plants are located, and implemented the restart of nuclear power plants with safety as a priority.

Shikoku Electric Power Company and the Ehime Prefectural Office held a press conference on the 22nd, announcing that the nuclear reactor will be started on December 2, power supply will be started on December 6, and the nuclear power plant will be put into operation again on January 4, 2022. If the plan goes smoothly, Unit 3 of the Iranian Nuclear Power Plant will restart after a lapse of one year and 11 months. Relevant personnel of Shikoku Electric Power Company said: “All of us will try our best to restore the trust of local people to us and operate nuclear power plants safely.”

The Iranian nuclear power plant is the only nuclear power plant in Shikoku Electric Power and Shikoku region. The Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011 made the Japanese people generally opposed to nuclear energy. In the end, Japan shut down all domestic nuclear reactors and the Iranian nuclear power plants were shut down. In August 2016, Japan restarted Unit 3 of the Iranian nuclear power plant. Since December 2019, Unit 3 of the Iranian Nuclear Power Plant has been shut down due to regular inspections. In January 2020, the Hiroshima Supreme Court banned the operation of the nuclear power plant because the relevant facilities were not completed and did not comply with the newly issued nuclear power plant regulations.
