The company operator of the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" earned in the first quarter of $ 4,3 billion
The operator of the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" TEPCO (Japan) announced its recovery from the crisis for the first time since 2011. From January to March 2014, the company earned $ 4,3 billion, largely thanks to government support, said the head of TEPCO Naomi Hirose.
For comparison, during the first quarter of 2013, the operator’s losses amounted to $ 6,69 billion. The total amount of state aid and proceeds from the sale of assets reached $ 184 trillion. TEPCO revenue from sales also increased, an increase of 11% was associated with an increase in electricity tariffs introduced to compensate for low consumption in the warm winter.
However, with the rising cost of hydrocarbon fuels, the winding up of nuclear power in the country will cause considerable difficulties, the company’s president said. 11 April, the Japanese government canceled a program to reduce the use of nuclear power plants and identified this segment as the main sector in the electric power industry.
