Hitachi president says to review nuclear target -Kyodo

TOKYO, April 6 (Reuters) – Hitachi Ltd will review
its target to secure 38 nuclear power generation projects over
the next two decades, in light of Japan’s protracted nuclear
crisis, Kyodo news agency quoted the electronics firm’s
president Hiroaki Nakanishi as saying on Wednesday.

Hitachi has been cooperating with General Electric to
win more such deals, Kyodo said.

The March 11 earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan
damaged Tokyo Electric Power Co’s Fukushima Daiichi
nuclear plant 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo and engineers
are struggling to prevent further radiation leaks.

The crisis has sparked concerns about the safe use of
nuclear power in earthquake-prone Japane, the world’s
third-largest economy.

Hitachi is the supplier of the stricken plant’s No.4
reactor, which was undergoing scheduled maintenance and not in
operation when the earthquake and tsunami hit.
