Takahama reactor to be shut down following court order
FUKUI, Japan, March 10, Kyodo
Kansai Electric Power Co. stopped power generation and transmission on Thursday at a reactor of its Takahama nuclear power plant, paving the way for the unit to be shut down later in the day.
The No. 3 unit is scheduled to come to a halt around 8 p.m., a day after a court ordered the utility to shut down the reactor.
The other reactor at Takahama subject to the court order, the No. 4 unit, is already offline.
