Tokyo Electric Power Holdings Inc. will launch a new site survey for its nuclear plant construction in northeastern Japan, suspended after the 2011 Fukushima disaster, with the company’s president expressing readiness Friday to push the project forward. TEPCO said it will conduct a full-fledged geological survey to devise stronger safety measures and see whether future facility expansion is possible on the site of the Higashidori nuclear power plant in Aomori Prefecture.
