Japan nuclear plant operations (Japan Atomic to shut unit)

 (Adds Japan Atomic to shut Tsuruga plant No.2 reactor)	
 TOKYO, May 6 (Reuters) - The table below shows the latest operational status of Japan's
nuclear power plants according to each utility's website.	
 Kyushu Electric Power Co said on Friday it would shut its 890 megawatt Sendai No.1
reactor on May 10 for planned maintenance. It expects the reactor to be closed for about two
months before it restarts.	
 Electricity wholesaler Japan Atomic Power Co said on Friday it would shut the 1,160-megawatt
No.2 reactor at its Tsuruga nuclear plant on Saturday for an unplanned inspection.	
 The company had said on Monday it would consider shutting the reactor due to a technical
problem, adding that there had been no radiation leak from the facility. [ID:nL3E7G214]	
 After the shutdowns of the units, 20,923 megawatts of nuclear power generation capacity, or
42.7 percent of Japan's total, will be in operation, Reuters calculations show.	
 Japan's nine utilities and a wholesaler have 54 nuclear power generators for commercial use,
with a total generating capacity of 48,960 megawatts.	
 In the table below, capacities are shown in megawatts. "P" represents a planned regular
inspection shutdown and "U" an unplanned shutdown.
