Workers have begun loading nuclear fuel into a reactor at the Takahama power plant in Fukui Prefecture in central Japan.

Kansai Electric Power Company began loading on Saturday the 157 nuclear fuel units needed to restart the No. 3 reactor. The company says it will work around the clock through Tuesday to finish the work.

The fuel includes 24 units of MOX fuel, a mixture of plutonium and uranium.

In March, the Osaka High Court scrapped an injunction issued by a lower court that suspended operations of the No. 3 and No. 4 reactors at the Takahama plant.

Kansai Electric completed loading nuclear fuel into the No. 4 reactor earlier this month. It is preparing to restart the reactor on Wednesday.

The company plans to restart the No. 3 reactor in early June.
