Tepco Submits Plan for Keeping Fukushima Plant Stable

Tokyo Electric Power Co. submitted a blueprint to regulators laying out steps to keep the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant stable for three years, a condition for declaring the immediate crisis is over.

The plan was filed late yesterday to Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, the company knowns as Tepco said in a statement. The Facility Management Plan outlines how Tepco will maintain stable cooling of the reactors and spent-fuel pools of the Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant, which has six units, four of which were damaged in the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
