Japan’s nuclear regulator says the Kashiwazaki Kariwa nuclear plant may be sited over active faults. If the faults are found to be under the reactor buildings the plant could be barred from restarting any impacted units. If faults are found to be active within the plant grounds they could require extensive retrofit to attempt to prevent damage at the plant.
TEPCO and the Japanese government have been putting considerable effort into restarting this nuclear plant with 7 reactors in the hopes it would generate enough money to help pay for TEPCO’s disaster at Fukushima. TEPCO has also been throwing considerable money into the restart efforts at Kashiwazaki.
