Since March of this year, a periodic inspection has been underway at the Sendai-1 (PWR, 890 MW), owned and operated by the Kyushu Electric Power Co.. On May 20, the company began a similar inspection of its Sendai-2 (PWR, 890 MW), the period for which was moved up because of the approaching deadline for the installation of facilities—termed specific safety facilities—to respond to specific severe accidents, including terrorist attacks, and which are mandated under the new regulatory standards for Japan’s nuclear power plants (NPPs).
