Fukui Gov. Issei Nishikawa will soon give his consent for the restart of two nuclear reactors in the prefecture on the Sea of Japan coast, sources said Sunday, as the central government seeks to bring more reactors back online after the 2011 start of the Fukushima nuclear crisis.

The governor will visit the site of reactors 3 and 4 at Kansai Electric Power Co.’s Takahama plant on Monday to check safety measures before expressing his consent, they said. The governor’s consent is necessary to restart the reactors.
