Like most of Japan's nuclear power generators, the Tsuruga nuclear power plant in Fukui prefecture has been shut down
in the wake of the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactor in 2011. It looks like Tsuruga will never get the new lease on life
some were hoping to see for it, though, as recent geological research suggests that the seismic fault the plant sits atop is an active one.
That likely means that the two reactors on the site, rather than being restarted, will instead have to be scrapped.
