Japan company says to close two large ageing nuclear reactorsA Japanese company said Friday it would decommission two ageing nuclear reactors due to difficulty in ensuring safety, as the public remains wary about atomic energy after the 2011 Fukushima disaster. Kansai Electric Power’s reactors No.1 and No.2 of the Oi plant in central Japan will be decommissioned, the largest reactors to be closed down aside from those at Tokyo Electric’s Fukushima Daiichi plant, the company said in a statement.
