3 Technical support for operation and maintenance of nuclear power plant
Taking the lessons learned from the accident at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant, we are ramping up efforts to promote research into nuclear disaster prevention and mitigation, such as on predictive methods of event progression and mitigation measures during a severe accident. In addition, we are performing researches on plant safety assessment to help improve safety in the operation and maintenance of nuclear power plants.
