At IYNC2022, you will have the opportunity to join technical tours of Japan’s exceptional top
nuclear facilities. Japan’s nuclear industry is as diverse as the country itself. All technical
tours are covered by the registration fee.

7 Technical tours will be offered at out our conference :

  • Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station
  • Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Station
  • Nuclear Safety Research Center Institute of JAEA
  • Oarai Institute of JAEA
  • Tokai Nuclear Power Station
  • Fukushima Various Facility Tour
  • Mitsubishi Nuclear Fuel (PWR type fuel) Tour

Please note that Tour 1-1, 1-2, 2-1 and 2-2 take place on November 24 and November 25.

Tour 1-1: Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station

Koriyama and Facility)
Registration Deadline: Oct. 20th
Transportation: Bus prepared by organizer and included in the conference fee
Lunch: Not included
Capacity: Around 20 people

Tour 1-2: Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station
Date: Nov. 25 th (Fri.) 12:30-16:20 (Not including travel time, about 2 hours between
Koriyama and Facility)
Registration Deadline: Oct. 20th
Transportation: Bus prepared by organizer, included in the conference fee
Lunch: Not included
Capacity: Around 20 person
Visiting Facilities: Same as Tour 1-1.

Tour 2-1: Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Station
Date: Nov. 25 th (Fri.) 9:00-11:45 (Not including travel time, about 2 hours between Koriyama and Facility)
Registration Deadline: Oct. 20th
Transportation: Bus prepared by organizer
Lunch: Not included
Capacity: Around 20 person
Visiting Facilities: Emergency Diesel Generator, Seawall, Gas Turbine Generator
Note: Knowledge transfer from Plant Manager of Fukushima Daini NPS is planned. At the
Fukushima Daini NPS, all four units lost heat removal function, which remove heat from the
reactors to the final heat sinks, due to the tsunami damage. However, while implementing
mitigation measures in accordance with emergency operating procedures, operators restored the heat removal function and achieved cold shutdown of all units. This should bring you valuable and seldom experiences.

Tour 2-2: Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Station
Date: Nov. 25 th (Fri.) 13:00-15:45 (Not including travel time, about 2 hours between
Koriyama and Facility)
Registration Deadline: Oct. 20th
Transportation: Bus prepared by organizer
Lunch: Not included
Capacity: Around 20 person
Visiting Facilities: Same as Tour 2-1.
Note: Same as Tour 2-1.
