Measures against Potential Natural Disasters

In order to prevent the simultaneous loss of functionality of important safety components due to natural phenomena, we have taken protective measures by assuming significantly more severe natural disasters than conventional assumptions.

Protection against External Fire

We are creating a 18m wide firebreak by cutting down trees in the periphery of the site to prevent the equipment from being damaged by a forest fire near the power station.

Protection against Flying Objects from Tornados

We have installed tornado protection for the seawater pumps in case steel objects fly toward the pumps in a tornado with wind speeds of 100m/sec.
