Taipei, Jan. 12 (CNA) The No. 2 reactor at Taiwan’s third nuclear power OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAplant in Pingtung County resumed power generation Tuesday and is expected to reach full capacity within the next two days, Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) said that day.

The reactor was shut down in November last year for an annual overhaul, during which a stud on the top cover of the reactor was found to be stuck.

After the problem was resolved, the Atomic Energy Council on Jan. 10 gave its permission for Taipower to restart the reactor.

The reactor began to supply electricity at 9:08 a.m., Taipower said.
