Electric Power Outage in Tokyo

March 28, 2011

Dear Friends Around the World

We mourn for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami that hit our country on March 11, and pray for those who are still struggling in the aftermath of that cataclysm.

Since March 14, 2011 the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) is implementing a rolling blackout plan in some areas of Japan following the energy shortage caused by the halting of the Fukushima-I and Fukushima-II Nuclear Power Plants, and a number of thermal power stations on Japan's north-eastern coast.

Planned power cuts (usually three hours long) may occur once or twice a day - or may be cancelled according to the situation. Many scheduled power cuts did not actually take place.

The power outage may affect the area where Production I.G is located. This means that during a power cut, if any, this site will be down temporarily, telephone lines will not work and e-mails may not be received. As of today, no power cuts occured in our area.

Currently, TEPCO has announced that the rolling blackouts are planned until the end of April, and may restart around July.

Thank you very much in advance for your kind understanding and support.

Production I.G
