TABLE-Updated Japan nuclear power plant operations, outages

 Dec 12 (Reuters) - The following table shows the latest operational status
of Japan's nuclear power plants.
 Tohoku Electric Power Co said on Wednesday it aimed to restart its Onagawa
No.3 nuclear unit by the end of this year, after changing parts.
 The unit has been shut since Nov. 10, when a technical problem prompted the
utility to conduct an emergency manual shutdown.
 About 29,412 megawatts of nuclear power generation capacity, or 59.5 percent
of Japan's total, are in operation, according to Reuters calculations.
 Nine Japanese utilities and a wholesaler have 55 nuclear power generators
for commercial use, with a total generating capacity of 49,470 megawatts.
 Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency requires utilities to shut each
unit for inspections every 13 months.
 In the table below, capacities are shown in megawatts. "P" represents a
planned regular inspection shutdown and "U" an unplanned shutdown.
