TABLE-Japan nuclear reactor operations: Kyushu restarts Genkai No.3

    TOKYO, March 23 (Reuters) - Japan's Kyushu Electric Power Co
 said it restarted the No.3 reactor at the Genkai
nuclear plant on Friday.
    The restart had been delayed by about two months as the
company took time to check whether there was any impact to
safety from the use of parts made by Kobe Steel Ltd,
which has admitted to widespread fabrication of data on
products.
    Kyushu Electric has also been aiming to restart the Genkai
No.4 reactor in May.
    The Genkai No.3 unit had been shut since December 2010,
marking the longest shutdown period among the seven reactors
that have resumed power generation after passing new beefed-up
safety standards imposed following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear
disaster.
    Many of Japan's reactors are still going through a
relicensing process following the 2011 Fukushima disaster, the
world's worst since Chernobyl in 1986, which highlighted
regulatory and operational failings at nuclear utilities. 
    The restart process has been protracted as all of the
country's reactors were eventually idled. Between September 2013
and August 2015 Japan had no nuclear plants in operation.
    Japan's nine regional power utilities and a wholesaler,
Japan Atomic Power Co, have 40 nuclear reactors for commercial
use, with a total generating capacity of 39.132 gigawatts. 
    After the restart of the Genkai No.3 unit, five reactors are
online, with a combined capacity of 4.99 gigawatts, or 12.8
percent of the country's total nuclear capacity, according to
Reuters calculations.
    The following table shows the status of Japan's nuclear
power plants.
