NRA To Give Monju Fast Breeder Reactor Order To Stop Operations

Japan’s NRA is expected to order the operators of the Monju Fast Breeder Reactor to stop operations. The reactor has been plagued with problems including a sodium fire, a coverup scandal and getting the fuel handling machine stuck in the reactor.

Recent reviews of the plant discovered more than 9000 skipped safety inspections and this continued after the admission of the initial 9000 violations. The NRA will likely order Monju to stop operations until significant changes are made to assure proper safety procedures are adhered to.
