The article discusses construction projects planned at the site of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear powerplant in Japan eight months after the March 11, 2011 tsunami and ensuing nuclear disaster. The Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) announced that it would achieve cold shutdown of the plant's four reactors by late December 2011. Also explored are the recorded radiation levels at the site, the public opinion of nuclear power in Japan following the meltdown, and potential power shortages in Japan.
