Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (Tepco) has begun loading nuclear fuel into the reactor at unit 7 the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant in Niigata Prefecture after the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA)granted approval. However, the timing of the restart remains uncertain. It is expected to take about two weeks of round-the-clock work to complete the loading of 872 fuel assemblies into the reactor vessel. Tepco will confirm the safety by testing the function of control rods and emergency core cooling systems, among other things, for about a month after the loading.

Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) said on 7 April that it will accept a penalty imposed by the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) over inadequate anti-terrorism measures at its Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant in Niigata Prefecture.
