      Fate of UK’s nuclear plants in doubt over ageing infrastructure This article is more than 1 year old After 12% drop in generation, experts say existing nuclear plants are likely to close early. Junichi Matsumoto, acting head of TEPCO's Nuclear Power & Plant Siting Division, acknowledged the seriousness of the Fukushima accident at a [12 April] press conference stating, "although the details of the [Chernobyl and Fukushima] accidents are different, from the standpoint of how much radiation has been released, [Fukushima] is equal to or. Therefore, the nuclear power plant has to be decommissioned. This is estimated to create an opportunity for the growth of the nuclear decommissioning services market during the forecast period. After the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident, the Government of Germany enforced measures to shut down its nuclear power plants by /5(25).
