TABLE-Japan nuclear reactor operations: Kansai Electric restarts Ohi No.3 reactor

    TOKYO, July 16 (Reuters) - Japan's Kansai Electric Power Co Inc
restarted the No. 3 reactor at its Ohi nuclear power plant in western Japan
earlier this month after completing maintenance and replacing some of the metal
piping, which was found to be damaged, a spokesperson said on Friday.
    The utility began booting up the 1,180-megawatt (MW) reactor on July 3 after
replacing some of the metal piping inside the reactor containment vessel and
completing regular maintenance and refuelling, the spokesperson said. The
reactor had been shut since July 20, 2020.
    With the restart, Japan has nine operating nuclear reactors with a total
capacity of 9,066 MW. Many reactors are still going through a re-licensing
process under the latest safety standards imposed after the disaster.  
    Nine regional power utilities and a wholesaler, Japan Atomic Power Co
(Japco), now have 33 reactors available for commercial use, with a combined
generating capacity of 33,083 MW. The companies had 54 reactors operating before
the Fukushima disaster.
    The table below shows the status of Japan's nuclear power plants. The
regional utilities are Hokkaido Electric Power, Tohoku Electric Power
, Tokyo Electric Power, Chubu Electric Power, Hokuriku
Electric Power, Kansai Electric Power, Chugoku Electric Power
, Shikoku Electric Power, and Kyushu Electric Power,
referred in the table by their regional name.
