"The government’s nuclear watchdog approved safety measures at a reactor in Shimane Prefecture on Sept. 15, adding momentum to Chugoku Electric Power Co.’s plan to restart the plant in fiscal 2022 at the earliest.
The Nuclear Regulation Authority certified that the No. 2 reactor at the Shimane nuclear plant in the prefectural capital of Matsue meets the stricter safety regulations that went into force after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster.
The No. 2 reactor, with a capacity of 0.82 gigawatt, is the 17th reactor across the country cleared by the NRA.
The plant is the only one in Japan located in a prefectural capital."
