Jan 27 (Reuters) - Chugoku Electric Power Co shut the 820-megawatt
No.2 reactor at its Shimane nuclear plant as scheduled on Friday for planned
maintenance.	
    After the shutdown, only three reactors are online in Japan with a capacity of 3,138
MW, leaving just 6.4 percent of the nation's total nuclear power capacity in use.	
    Public fears about nuclear safety sparked by the Fukushima radiation crisis have
prompted the nation's nuclear watchdog to require utilities to conduct stress tests as a
precondition for restarting reactors stopped for routine maintenance.	
    But it is unclear when the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency or the government
will approve the stress test reports or when approval will be given by local authorities
for reactor restarts. 	
    Japan, the world's third-biggest nuclear power user, has 54 reactors for commercial
use, with a total generating capacity of 48,960 MW.	
    In the table below, capacities are shown in megawatts. "P" represents a planned
regular inspection shutdown and "U" an unplanned shutdown.
