TABLE-Japan nuclear reactor operations

(Updates status of Ikata No.3 reactor)
    Aug 12 (Reuters) - Japanese utility Shikoku Electric Power Co said
it restarted the 890-megawatt No.3 reactor at its Ikata nuclear plant at 9 a.m.
(0000 GMT) on Friday, as planned.
    The company plans to start power generation on Monday. The Ikata No.3 unit
was the fifth reactor at a third nuclear plant to resume operations after
stringent safety requirements were imposed in 2013 following the Fukushima
disaster.
    Japan's efforts to restart nuclear plants have been slow after all of the
country's units were eventually idled in the wake of the disaster in March 2011,
due to beefed up safety measures.
    That led to a period of nearly two years between September 2013 and August
2015 when Japan had no nuclear power generation, the longest since it started
using atomic energy in the early 1970s.
    Reactors in Japan are required to be shut after 13 months of commercial
operations for planned maintenance. 
    Kansai Electric restarted the Takahama No.3 and No.4 reactors earlier this
year but they have since been shut down on a court order. 
    Currently, only three reactors are online with a combined capacity of 2.67
gigawatts, or 6.4 percent of Japan's total nuclear capacity, Reuters
calculations show.
    Japan's nine major power monopolies and a wholesaler, Japan Atomic Power Co,
have 42 nuclear reactors for commercial use, with a total generating capacity of
41,482 megawatts.
    The following table shows the latest status of Japan's nuclear power plants,
according to a Reuters survey.
