The agency has already released its evaluations on all but the two Chugoku Electric reactors
which were found in March to have 511 inspection failures or devices that needed to be replaced.
Underpinning safety concerns about old nuclear plants, 52 of the 66 locations were concentrated in the five Kansai Electric reactors
that have been in service for more than 30 years -- the Mihama No.
The government decided to allow construction of the nuclear power plant under the new energy development plan on April 6 on the assumption that demand will grow sufficiently to necessitate the amount of power that the Chugoku Electric reactors
will supply, the officials said.
