The Ōma Nuclear Power Plant (大間原子力発電所 Ōma genshiryoku hatsudensho?) is a future nuclear plant in Ōma, Aomori currently undergoing preliminary ground work that will be operated by the Electric Power Development Company. The reactor will be unique in that it will be capable of using a 100% MOX fuel core, as requested by the 1995 decision by the Japanese Atomic Energy Commission.

In 2008, Electric Power announced a 2.5-year delay to allow for additional work to make the plant resistant to a strong earthquake, making the operation start date in November 2014.[1][2]
