Taipei, June 12 (CNA) The No. 2 reactor at the second nuclear power plant in New Taipei’s Wanli District is scheduled to resume operations at 11:00 p.m. Tuesday after being taken offline earlier in the evening, state-run utility Taiwan Power Co. (Taipower) said on the same day.

Taipower spokesman Hsu Tsao-hua (徐造華) said one of the reactor’s connectors was found to be at an excessively high temperature and the reactor was taken offline at around 8:00 p.m. for maintenance.

The decision was taken to check the connectors as a precaution and not because of any problems with the reactor itself, Hsu said.    [FULL  STORY]
