TABLE-Japan nuclear plant ops (Tokai Daini under repair until Aug)

Oct 12 (Reuters) - Japan Atomic Power said on Wednesday that repairing its
quake-hit Tokai Daini nuclear reactor will take until August next year, about nine
months longer than originally planned, as the facility's turbines need extra work.	
    The 1,100-megawatt reactor in Tokaimura, 110 km northeast of Tokyo, has come under
the spotlight this week as the town's mayor has called on the government to
decommission it. The 33-year old reactor has an allowed life of 40 years.
 	
    Currently, only 10 reactors in Japan with a capacity of 8,684 MW are 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, has 54 reactors for
commercial use, with a total generating capacity of 48,960 MW.	
    In the table below, capacities are shown in megawatts. "P" represents a planned
regular inspection shutdown and "U" an unplanned shutdown.
