Subject: RE: BS: Japan Nuclear plant disaster, 2011
Glitch forces shutdown of the Oi nuclear power reactor in Fukui Prefecture, adding to power shortage woes. The problem was with the cooling system.
Two more reactors run by Kepco in the Kansai region are scheduled to be halted Thursday and Friday for regular inspections and maintenance.
This will mean eight of 13 commercial reactors in Fukui Prefecture run by Kepco will be offline.
