TABLE-Japan nuclear reactor operations: Kansai Electric restarts Takahama No. 4 reactor

    TOKYO, April 13 (Reuters) - Japan's Kansai Electric Power Co
Inc has restarted the No. 4 reactor at its Takahama
nuclear power plant in western Japan after completing mandatory
upgrades to protect the facility against terrorist attacks and
fixing system glitches, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.
    The utility began booting up the 870-megawatt (MW) reactor
on Monday after dealing with upgrades, damage in the heat
transfer tubes and regular maintenance and refuelling, the
spokeswoman said. The reactor had been shut since October 7. 
    Kansai Electric had also restarted the No.3 reactor at the
Takahama plant on March 7, she said. The 870-MW reactor had been
shut since Jan. 6, 2020.
    Meanwhile, Kyushu Electric Power Inc has restarted
the 1,180-MW No.4 reactor at its Genkai nuclear power plant in
southern Japan on March 17 after having been shut for regular
maintenance since Dec. 9, a company spokesman said.
    With the restarts, Japan now has seven operating nuclear
reactors with a total capacity of 7,060 MW. Many reactors are
still going through a re-licensing process under the latest
safety standards imposed after the 2011 Fukushima disaster.  
    Nine regional power utilities and a wholesaler, Japan Atomic
Power Co (Japco), now have 33 reactors available for commercial
use, with a combined generating capacity of 33,083 MW. The
companies had 54 reactors operating before the Fukushima
disaster.
    The table below shows the status of Japan's nuclear power
plants. The regional utilities are Hokkaido Electric Power
, Tohoku Electric Power, Tokyo Electric Power
, Chubu Electric Power, Hokuriku Electric Power
, Kansai Electric Power, Chugoku Electric Power
, Shikoku Electric Power, Kyushu Electric Power
, referred in the table by their regional name.
