Two more Japanese reactors approved for restart


Japan has greenlit the opening of two reactors for the Takahama project, which is owned by Kansai Electric Power Company (TSE:9503). That brings the number of approved reactors to four, just after a general election win showed steady support for the pro-nuclear ruling Liberal Democratic Party.

The new reactors will join the Sendai reactors, which were approved in early November after a local vote by the city of Satsumasendai supported their restart. The Sendai reactors aren't expected to open until early 2015.

Cantor Fitzgerald forecasts that 32 reactors will ultimately be restarted, with nine in 2015, 10 in 2016, 12 in 2017 and one in 2018.

We are well on our way to a recovery in the uranium price, it is up over 25% already, and I expect that to improve in the next year.
