Pursuing the World's Highest Level of Safety with Commitment and Dedication as "Team Shika."

Toshinao Furuya, Superintendent of Shika Nuclear Power Station Hokuriku Electric Power Company We put the highest priority on safety in operating Shika Nuclear Power Station, and take all safety measures with a firm determination to prevent any accidents like the one that occurred at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station from happening again.
 At present, we are steadily proceeding with the installation of an underground light-oil storage tank and on construction work to provide safety measures for the alternative power-supply facilities and other equipment.
 As for the incident in September of 2016, when rainwater entered the reactor building, we sincerely apologize for the trouble and anxiety that the situation caused. We strive to take proper measures to prevent an incident like that from happening again.
 With even greater commitment and dedication, we pursue the world's highest level of safety, and implement safety measures in integrated cooperation with the employees of our company and partner companies working at Shika Nuclear Power Station, as the close-knit "Team Shika," in order to earn the trust of, and provide peace of mind to, the people in our local communities.
