28 February 2011

On February 18, Unit 5 of the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Station (NPS), owned and operated by the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), was returned to commercial service, nearly three and a half years after the station was struck by the Niigata Chuetsu Offshore Earthquake on July 16, 2007, according to the Japanese Atomic Information Forum. A periodic inspection had been underway at Unit 5 when the earthquake occurred.

A final evaluation of a functional test for the entire plant was completed on 20 January 2011. A general integration inspection was carried out on 16-18 February.
