Hundreds Engineers Called to Action To Restore Fukushima Daiichi and Daini Power Plants
Toshiba is making utmost efforts to help maintain the integrity of the nuclear power plants and to restore the power supply in affected regions at the earliest possible date, working in close collaboration with other companies and entities.
Immediately after the earthquake, Toshiba formed a task force which now comprises some 700 engineers at the company’s Tokyo headquarters, at its Isogo Nuclear Engineering Center in Yokohama and at other facilities, in order to address the incidents at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plants. This team is now gathering and analyzing information 24/7 and developing solutions.
Following requests from the Japanese government and the Tokyo Electric Power Co, Ltd. (TEPCO), the operator of the Fukushima power plants, Toshiba has already dispatched more than 100 engineers to Fukushima Daiichi and the nearby Fukushima Daini power plants. These personnel are now providing vital support and resources. Toshiba will reinforce these resources as required.
