TABLE-Japan nuclear reactor operations: Kyushu Electric shuts Genkai No. 4 reactor

    TOKYO, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Japan's Kyushu Electric Power
 has shut the No. 4 reactor at its Genkai nuclear plant
in southwestern Japan for scheduled maintenance, a spokesman
said on Monday.
    The utility shut the 1,180-megawatt (MW) reactor on Saturday
to carry out regular maintenance and refuelling, and it expects
to restart the reactor in early March, the spokesman said by
phone.
    The latest shutdown leaves only two operating nuclear
reactors with a total capacity of 2,070 MW in Japan. Many
reactors are still going through a re-licensing process under
new safety standards imposed after the 2011 Fukushima disaster.
    Kyushu Electric plans to restart the No. 2 reactor at its
Sendai nuclear plant later this month following upgrades to
protect the facility against terrorist attacks, the spokesman
said.
    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, Kyushu Electric Power
, referred in the table by their regional name.
