Fukushima prefecture called for the decommissioning of all six reactors at Dai-Ichi and the four reactors at the Fukushima Dai-Ni station, located about 10 kilometers (6 miles) to the south of the other plant.
Tepco hasn’t decided yet whether to decommission the remaining two reactors at Dai-Ichi and the units at Dai-Ni, said Hosoda, declining to comment further.
Tokyo Electric Power Co. (9501) also stated they still plan to build nuclear reactors in northern Japan.
The utility known as Tepco stopped building the 1,385- megawatt No. 1 Higashidori reactor after the March earthquake and tsunami wrecked its Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant, the Yomiuri said, without saying where it obtained the information. The company may also scrap plans to build a second reactor there, the paper said. Tepco issued a statement denying the report.
“There is no truth to the Yomiuri report,” Chie Hosoda, spokeswoman for the utility, said by phone. She declined to comment on the status of plans for Higashidori.
