Japan Nuclear Fuel Limited Low-Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Center

The low-level radioactive waste (1520 drums) that was scheduled to be transported was verified to conform to the waste acceptance criteria in an audit by Japan Nuclear Fuel Limited (JNFL) at the Hamaoka Nuclear Power Station.

However, JNFL subsequently requested that transportation for this fiscal year be postponed for six transport containers (48 drums) that hold ten drums which shared the same waste storage process with drums that suffered from paint peeling, etc., at Chubu Electric Power in the past.
