Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) has set a target to ensure the safe shutdown of nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan by January 2012.

Japan’s economy, trade and industry minister Yukio Edano announced that it would be possible to safely shut down the three damaged nuclear reactors at the quake-hit plant.

TEPCO plans to bring the tsunami-battered nuclear reactors to a temperature of around 100°C by January, under a nine-month road map stabilisation plan.

The UN’s atomic agency said the plant’s nuclear reactors were stable and the shutdown could be achieved ahead of schedule.
