FUKUI, Japan (Kyodo) -- Kansai Electric Power Co. said Monday that a reactor at its Takahama plant in western Japan shut down automatically after a problem with an generator triggered an alarm.
The No. 4 reactor at the plant, which was brought back online last Friday, was deactivated after the automatic alarm system prompted control rods to be inserted. There is no problem with the reactor's cooling system, the company said.
The latest incident follows a coolant water leak on Feb. 20 in a building attached to the reactor, caused by insufficient tightening of a bolt in a pipe valve.
