N-reactor builders fret about loss of business : National : DAILY YOMIURI ONLINE (The Daily Yomiuri)

U.S. and European nuclear reactor builders increasingly are concerned about the situation at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant because a prolonged crisis could force countries worldwide to change their policies on nuclear power and eventually deal a heavy blow to their business.

Apparently stemming from this concern, visiting French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Areva SA, a French major nuclear reactor maker, on Thursday announced support for Japan's response to the series of accidents at the nuclear power plant following the massive quake and tsunami.

During talks with Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Banri Kaieda in Tokyo, Anne Lauvergeon, chief executive officer of Areva, said she recognized that the problems at the Tokyo Electric Power Co. nuclear plant are not only Japan's but her company's as well. She said Areva would provide maximum support to Japan.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
