"Where Tepco is today: Progress and challenges"

Language:The speech and Q & A will be in English

Just over six years have passed since the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant suffered a triple reactor meltdown.

While workers have made progress in removing fuel rods and reducing radiation levels in many parts of the site, its operator, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco), faces the difficult task of dealing with huge quantities of contaminated water, as well as locating and removing melted fuel from the damaged reactors.

The decommissioning effort is expected to take 40 years and cost around 8 trillion yen (70 billion US dollars), according to a recent estimate by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

Dale Klein, chair of Tepco's Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee will visit the club to share his views on developments at the plant and Tepco's attempts to restart the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear plant.

Klein, the former head of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, will also explain recent robot explorations to gauge the location and condition of melted fuel, how Tepco intends to solve its contaminated water problem, and the utility's attempts to strengthen its overall safety culture.

Please reserve in advance, 3211-3161 or on the website (still & TV cameras inclusive). Reservations and cancellations are not complete without confirmation.
