The Atomic Energy Council (AEC) has given the nod to the country’s second nuclear power plant in New Taipei’s Wanli District to restart its No. 2 reactor, state-run utility Taiwan Power Co. (Taipower) said on Tuesday. Taipower received official written approval from the AEC earlier Tuesday to restart the reactor, the power company said, adding that the reactor is undergoing final safety checks and is expected to be running at full capacity within about one week. The reactor, which went offline in May 2016 following a glitch in its electrical system during major maintenance work, resumed operations on March 27 of this year, but automatically shut down the next day after it developed another glitch.
