Work starts to restart Ohi No.4 reactor
The operator of the Ohi nuclear plant in Fukui Prefecture has begun work to restart the No. 4 reactor, following similar operations at the No. 3 reactor last Saturday.
Kansai Electric Power Company began the 2-week job of cleaning pipes connected to the turbine at the No. 4 reactor on Thursday.
The company then plans to spend about 10 more days checking pipes connected to the reactor, and testing control rods.
The No. 3 reactor is scheduled to restart on July 1st, and the No. 4 reactor, on the 17th.
Full operation is expected to start at the No. 3 reactor on July 8th, and the No. 4, on July 24th.
