Kyodo Electric restarts third coal-fired unit in Japan

Kyodo Electric Power restarted its 350MW gas and oil-fired Unit 4 at its thermal power plant in eastern Japan.


This brings three of four units resuming full operations. Units No 1 and 3 have already been restarted, while the 350MW unit No 2 has been suspended.

Kyodo Electric Power supplies half of its power generated to Tokyo Electric Power. The unit was shut after a massive earthquake of 9.0 magnitude hit Japan on 11 March 2011.
