After the 2007 earthquake suspicions arose that another fault line may be closer to the plant than originally thought, possibly running straight through the site.
In the 2004 Chūetsu earthquake on November 4, 2004, devices around the base of the plant only measured 4 on the Japanese seismological intensity scale while other nearby places measured 6.
Numbering starts at Unit 1 with the south-most unit through Unit 4, then there is a large green space in between Unit 4 and 7, then it continues with Units 6 and 5, the newest of the reactors.
The Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant, a nuclear plant with seven units, the largest single nuclear power station in the world, was completely shut down for 21 months following an earthquake in 2007.
including land in the towns of Kashiwazaki and Kariwa in Niigata Prefecture, Japan on the coast of the Sea of Japan, from where it gets cooling water.
The plant is owned and operated by Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO).
Unit 7 was restarted after seismic upgrades on May 9, 2009, followed later by units 1, 5, and 6. After the March 11, 2011 earthquake, all restarted units were shut down and safety improvements are being carried out.
As of October 2017 There are seven units, which are all lined up along the coast line.
In May a burst tube had delayed trial runs at the plant, and earlier in July smoke had been found coming from plant machinery.
It was the largest nuclear generating station in the world by net electrical power rating.
It was approximately 19 km (12 mi) from the epicenter of the second strongest earthquake to ever occur at a nuclear plant, the M 6.6 July 2007 Chūetsu offshore earthquake.
The last two units were the first Advanced Boiling Water Reactors (ABWRs) ever built.
Such a large plant size has several economic advantages, one of these being the limited impact of refueling outages of individual units on the plant's total net power production.
