TEPCO asked subsidiary to underestimate tsunami threat at Fukushima nuclear plant - worker | 01 March 2018 | Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) asked a subsidiary in 2008 to underestimate the scale of tsunami that could hit the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant before tsunami devastated the facility in March 2011, a subsidiary employee told a court. The worker at Tokyo Electric Power Services Co. (TEPSCO) appeared as a witness at the hearing of three former TEPCO executives under indictment on charges of professional negligence resulting in death and injury at the Tokyo District Court on Feb. 28. The man played a key role in TEPSCO's estimate of the scale of possible tsunami, which could hit the premises of the plant, between 2007 and 2008.
