Power generator to be set up at high ground at Hamaoka atomic plant.
Chubu Electric Power Co. said Tuesday it will set an emergency diesel generator at high ground on its Hamaoka nuclear power plant premises in Omaezaki, Shizuoka Prefecture, in case of power loss due to tsunami.
The announcement was made in the wake of an ongoing nuclear crisis at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant where emergency power sources, needed to cool down nuclear fuel, were crippled by tsunami.
The Nagoya-based utility also said it will have a training session to use a newly introduced emergency generator vehicle at the Hamaoka plant's No. 3 reactor, which has been under five-month regular checkups since November. Resumption of the reactor will be delayed as the training will take at least one week, it added.
