TOKYO, November 26. /TASS/. Japan reckons on Russia’s assistance in dealing with the aftermath of the Fukushima-1 disaster, Junichi Eguchi, the Director for Nuclear Accident Response Office of the Electricity and Gas Industry Department at the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy said on Thursday. He noted that the Japanese technologies were not sufficient for dealing with the aftermath of the disaster, and the country needed technical cooperation with various countries in this matter.
The earthquake and tsunami that occurred in March 2011 severely damaged four Fukushima-1 units.
"Cooperation between Russia and Japan on nuclear energy is actively developing. After the Fukushima accident cooperation between our two countries to deal with its aftermath intensifies, and now we are considering the use of technologies involving Russian experts for overcoming the aftermath of this disaster," Eguchi said. He added that Japan "adhered to the strategy of the overall safety check in accordance with the new requirements."
In 2014, the Japanese government chose Russian companies as partners in the implementation of the pilot project to clean up radioactive water at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant. The installation is to be built by March 31, 2016. Currently, talks are in progress with the Japanese side on the beginning of work to design a full-scale installation.
