The supply of MOX fuel for Kansaï is in line with the agreements signed with Japanese electricians from 1975 for the treatment of nearly 3,000 tons of spent fuel at the La Hague site. The Takahama nuclear power plant is located on the southwest coast of Japan, 350 km from Tokyo. It is equipped with 4 reactors. Last July, a MOX convoy left France from the port of Cherbourg to Japan to supply the plant.
