Lithuania decision on nuclear construction project denies Hitachi first overseas nuclear deal

Hitachi and other Japanese manufacturers are hoping to boost their nuclear power plant business overseas because the Fukushima crisis effectively wiped out demand for new reactors in Japan.

Hitachi issued a statement saying that “the result of the referendum was very regrettable.”

“It is very disappointing because it was the project at the most advanced stage among those being promoted by Japanese businesses,” a senior Hitachi official said Monday.

    Experts from Japan’s new Nuclear Regulation Authority will inspect the Ohi nuclear power station on November 2nd, to determine if an underground fault on-site is active.
    If the fault is not active now, seems short sited. In the past 10,000 years how many sites were not active for years and then become active. We have seen this many times for volcanoes blowing after many years at rest. How can we believe the Nuclear Regulators and pro nuke after all the information that is and will be held from the public. How can we trust them after they mislead and modify info given to the public. They seem to say or do what they want and to hell with public safety. Most sites are found to be unsafe but they go ahead anyway.
