Japan reveals the details of the stress tests

Japan reveals the details of the "stress tests" faced by nuclear reactors stopped before they can resume their operations, said yesterday a senior official as the government seeks to ensure public safety after the disaster of Fukushima. Gohsi Hosono, the minister appointed by the Government to monitor Japan's response to the crisis in the nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Fuji TV said in an interview that Tokyo also announced a plan to supply electricity for the next "one or two years, "to allay fears among companies about energy shortages." The results of the new evidence of resistance and the decision on the restart can not be treated separately.

"He argued that the evidence, seeking to assess whether Japanese nuclear plants can withstand the kind of massive earthquake and tsunami that caused the crisis in Fukushima, have different criteria from those proposed by the European Union, adding: "They are Japanese-style tests." In a sudden policy shift, Prime Minister Naoto Kan said last week that Japan would conduct trials of resistance to nuclear power plants similar to those that had made the European Union after the fusion of the nuclei of three of the six reactors Fukushima Daiichi plant.
