U.S. Nuclear Energy Industry Strengthens Safety with Learnings from Fukushima

WASHINGTON , DC,, Feb. 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the five years since the Fukushima Daiichi accident, U.S. nuclear energy facilities have invested more than $4 billion and devoted thousands of person-hours to better ensure safety in the face of extreme events, the Nuclear Energy Institute announced during a briefing today.

"The safety enhancements have been significant," said Maria Korsnick, NEI's chief operating officer. "They are based on well-defined lessons learned from Fukushima. Their development and implementation has been coordinated by chief nuclear officers and technical advisors throughout the industry and they are being implemented at all U.S. nuclear power plants."

Korsnick chaired a committee of industry chief nuclear officers who developed the U.S. response to lessons learned from the Fukushima accident. Her remarks came during a briefing that included presentations from Takafumi Anegawa, chief nuclear officer for Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), and Dr. Dale Klein, former chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and chairman of the TEPCO Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee. TEPCO operated the nuclear power plant damaged by the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami that devastated northeast Japan.
