  5. 1. Fukui Prefecture’s Nuclear Power Fifty-years History as the Nuclear Power Station Siting Prefecture Generating Highest Amount Electricity in Japan 5

  6. Historical overview of Nuclear Energy in Fukui Initial phase (1967 - ) Residents has 'exceeded expectations' for regional development with the use of Nuclear energy and the prefecture and local municipalities campaign to host the Nuclear Power Plants. Operational phase (1970 - ) The interplay of hope and fear (The first nuclear-generated power from Mihama Unit No.1 was sent to the site of the EXPO '70 exhibition in Osaka or the other hand, a rash of events at nuclear power plants including radioactive releases threatened people.) 9NPPs (1975 - ) New plant construction plan at the existing site and new sites has moved forwarded. Meanwhile, Public fear and distrust increased due to TMI accidents and other domestic and overseas nuclear events. 15 NPPs (1985 - ) “Oil crisis” led to a renewed interest in nuclear and a decision was made to construct new plants at the existing site and a research reactor “Monju”. - Decommission(A prototype nuclear reactor “Fugen” has shut down permanently in 2003.) New phase The Fukushima nuclear accident has major impact on some issues about restarting the nuclear power plant after regular inspections, operational duration of aging plant over 40 years and replacement of plant.

  9. 2. “Three Nuclear Principles” in Fukui Prefecture Basic Principle on Implementing Nuclear Policy 9

  10. Fukui’s Nuclear Policy •  In Japan, the national government has all kinds of authority and responsibility for controlling the safety of nuclear power stations. •  Fukui Prefecture has been implementing nuclear policy based on “Three Nuclear Principles” aiming at ensuring the safety, health, and welfare of its residents. • Three Nuclear Principles • 1) Ensuring safety • 2) Receiving local residents’ understanding & consent • 3) Bringing permanent welfare to the prefecture 10

  11. “First Principle" Ensuring Safety To protect the safety and health of its residents, Fukui Prefecture takes “safety measures,” such as signing a safety agreement, monitoring the neighboring environment, and enhancing atomic disaster prevention.  Signing a safety agreement  Monitoring the neighboring environment  Enhancing atomic disaster prevention 11

  12. What is a Safety Agreement?  Compliance with relevant rules and regulations Compliance with relevant regulations and implementation of the safety agreement for securing safety  Prior permission of plans Any major change to a plan, such as new power plants, modifications, use of new fuels, and storage of nuclear fuel materials, must be approved by municipalities. Notification during normal operation Maintenance and operating status, regular inspection, fuel transportation, nuclear waste, and exposure level status Notification in the event of an accident Emergency occurrence, unplanned reactor shutdown, power plant failure On-site inspection On-site inspections will be conducted at the power plants if the safety ofthe surrounding environment and employees needs to be ensured. Request for proper measures Request for proper measures such as restrictions on reactor facilities including reactor shutdown On-site inspection of Monju concerning sodium leakage Dec. 8, 1999 12

  13. Response to accidents and breakdowns by the Fukui prefectural government Occurrence of accidents and breakdowns 1) Recognize the phenomenon 2) Confirm the safety of the surroundings 3) Grasp past examples Receive the first report Radiation leakage to a general drainage channel at Tsuruga Reactor No.1 in April 1981 Abnormal phenomena, based on the safety agreement 10 cases in 2011 Determine announcement to the outside Determine the announcement time 1) Report to persons of a higher rank 2) Coordinate with related organizations 3) Confirm the safety of the surroundings 4) Write an announcement and draw figures announced 5) Grasp all the facts INES standards Level 0: 1 case Others: Outside the evaluation Express so that prefectural citizens (the press) can understand correctly The prefectural government gave explanation to the prefectural government reporter club (The business gave explanation to the local reporter club) 13 13

  14. Sodium Leak from Monju in December 1995  The accident occurred on the day the national government informed the prefectural assembly of the discontinuance of ATR development. All the members of the division worked overtime. After receiving the first report, two staff members were sent to the atomic site. The leading members of PNC were thunderstruckby the news of a fire caused by the sodium leakage!  There was no company-wide talk about how to disclose information and to recover its credibility. Lessons from problems (hidden information) in Mihama and Tsuruga were not reflected in the accident! On-site survey (by the Fukui and Tsuruga governments) Why did ten years pass until the start of modification? Providing the outside with no correct information significantly changed the nature of the accident.  The national and prefectural people got suspicious of the operator! 14

  15. A Pipe was Broken in the Secondary System of the Mihama Reactor No. 3 in August 2004 The accident occurred right after heavy rain in Fukui and when attention was paid to therisk management system of the prefecture. After receiving the first report, the prefectural governor made a request (governor’s initiative) for sending doctors and for mobilizing a disaster prevention helicopter. To inspect the pipes of the secondary system, the governor asked the operator to stop the plant step by step. The governor asked the national government and operator to reinforce measures against aging. Requirements for safety assurance were added to the safety agreement, such as a “request for stopping the operation of a power plant” and “ensuring the safety of persons working for power plants.” The governor strengthened the operation monitoring system of the prefecture. Request to Nakagawa, the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry on the day following the accident Fukui Nuclear Safety Committee (from 2004) 15 Broken part of the pipe
