TOKYO, April 20 (Reuters) - Japanese utility Kansai Electric Power Co said it would restart the 600-megawatt oil-fired No.3 unit at its Kainan power plant around 7 p.m. (1000 GMT) on Friday following a water leak from a boiler.

The unit, which uses crude and fuel oil as feedstock, has been shut since April 15 after the problem, and is expected to resume normal operations on Saturday morning, a company spokesman said. (Reporting by Osamu Tsukimori; Editing by Chris Gallagher)
