Reuters is reporting that the two operating reactors at the Oi nuclear plant in Japan will have to shut down in September 2013 for required maintenance. Japanese law requires maintenance shutdown every 13 months. Currently these are the only two operating reactors in Japan. The new nuclear safety laws are still being determined and may require extensive upgrades before the plant could restart. The issue of the active fault under the reactors at Oi is also still up in the air. Part of the review staff think it is active, others are not sure. This issue could also force the shut down of the plant or at least some units at the plant.
