Reactor at Ikata nuclear power plant resumes operations

NHK and most commercial networks reported in their noon news programs that Shikoku Electric Power restarted operations this morning at Reactor No. 3 at its Ikata Nuclear Power Plant in Ehime Prefecture, making it the fifth unit to be reactivated under the tougher regulations set following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident. The reactor is expected to begin generating and transmitting electricity on Aug. 15 and resume commercial operation in early September for the first time since it was halted in April 2011 for a regular inspection.
