Hitachi, GE Submit Plan to Dismantle Fukushima Nuclear Plant

Hitachi Ltd. and General Electric Co. submitted a plan to dismantle the crippled Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant they helped build as Japanese engineers battle to contain the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl.

The proposal, which also involves Exelon Corp. and Bechtel Corp., was submitted April 8, said Yuichi Izumisawa, a Tokyo-based spokesman at Hitachi, Japan’s second-largest maker of nuclear reactors. He declined to specify details of the plan.
