TABLE-Japan nuclear plant ops (Genkai No.4 shut after problem)

6 Min Read

Oct 4 (Reuters) - Kyushu Electric Power Co said on Tuesday the
1,180-megawatt No.4 reactor at its Genkai nuclear plant shut down automatically at
1:40 p.m. (0440 GMT) following a problem with the unit's cooling system.	
    The utility, in southern Japan, has been checking the cause of the trouble, a
company spokesman said, adding that it did not know immediately whether the shutdown
would have an impact on stable power supplies to its customers.   	
    After the shutdown, only 10 reactors in Japan with a capacity of 8,684 MW are
currently generating electricity, leaving just 17.7 percent of the nation's total
nuclear power capacity in use. Public fears about nuclear safety after the Fukushima
nuclear crisis have prevented local governments from giving utilities the go-ahead to
restart reactors taken down for routine maintenance.	
    Japan, the world's third-biggest nuclear power user, currently has 54 reactors 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.
