Three Japanese reactors have approval to operate for their full licence periods of 40 years after decisions by the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA). One of the units – Sendai 2 – is already in operation, the other two – Takahama 3 and 4 – are soon to restart.
Takahama 3 and 4 are likely to be the next units to restart, in December and early 2016 respectively. They are also now expected to operate until 2025.
