Three electric utilities are planning shipments of mixed oxide plutonium-uranium fuel from France sometime between January and March that would arrive by sea between April and June, according to sources.

The shipments for Kyushu Electric Power Co., Shikoku Electric Power Co. and Chubu Electric Power Co. would enable Japan to commence its first MOX fuel power generation as early as in the next fiscal year, which starts April 1, the sources said.
