TABLE-Japan nuclear ops (1 reactor left online with Tepco checks)

March 26 (Reuters) - Tokyo Electric Power Co, the operator of the Fukushima
plant, shut down its last running reactor, the No. 6 unit at the Kashiwazaki Kariwa
plant, at 1:46 a.m. on Monday (1646 GMT on Sunday) for planned maintenance, leaving only
one of Japan's 54 reactors online.	
    The one remaining reactor, Hokkaido Electric's Tomari No.3, is scheduled to
go off line on May 5 for maintenance.
     The capacity of the last remaining reactor is 912 megawatts, meaning just 1.9
percent of the nation's total nuclear power capacity remains in use, raising concerns
about a power crunch if none of the reactors taken off-line after the Fukushima crisis
is restarted. 	
    Public fears about nuclear safety sparked by the Fukushima radiation crisis have
prompted the nation's nuclear watchdog to require utilities to conduct stress tests as a
precondition for restarting reactors before the central and local governments make a
final decision.	
    Safety worries have kept reactors that underwent regular maintenance from going back
on stream after the Fukushima disaster, triggered by a huge tsunami last March. The
government is keen to get some running again, but must first persuade wary locals that
the plants are safe.	
    Despite a noisy protest by anti-nuclear activists, Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission
on Friday endorsed computer-simulated stress tests on Kansai Electric Power's 
No.3 and No.4 reactors in the town of Ohi in Fukui prefecture.  The Commission's move
clears the way for the premier and three other ministers to meet on the restarts, but
there was no sign of when they might do so. 	
    Japan, which before the March disaster was the world's third-biggest user of nuclear
power, has 54 reactors for commercial use, with a total generating capacity of 48,960
MW. Tokyo Electric plans to scrap the first four reactors of the crippled
Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant.	
    In the table below, capacities are shown in megawatts. "P" represents a planned
regular inspection shutdown and "U" an unplanned shutdown.
