June 29 (Reuters) - Japan is planning a wave of new coal-fired power plants as it struggles to revive its nuclear industry which is still mostly shut down in the wake of the Fukushima disaster in 2011. Nuclear power contributed nearly a third of total electricity generated before the catastrophe. Companies are looking to build 41 new coal-fired power plants with total capacity of 18,431 megawatts expected to come online in the next decade. Japan had a total 90 coal-fired units at the end of March 2016, with total capacity of 41,270 MW, according to industry data. Below is a list of coal-fed power plants that utilities, steelmakers and other companies are planning or considering to build, along with their scheduled start of operations. Capacity figures are in megawatts.
