We hereby announce that as of today, Genkai Nuclear Power Station Unit No.4 (Pressurized Water Reactor, 1,180MW output) is expected to start up on June 16, and restart generating electricity on June 20.
Note that date of restart of generating electricity could change due to turbine balance adjustment etc.
After restarting generating electricity, we will conduct the adjustment operation as increasing output gradually. Accordingly, the plant is expected to undergo the integrated performance test and return to the commercial operation in mid-July.
We will continue to make sincerely an all-out effort to deal with the Nuclear Regulation Authority's inspections, and carry out remaining process carefully.
