South Korea’s Nuclear Safety and Security Commission said it approved the restart of the 587-MW Kori 1 reactor after a maintenance outage.
Commissioners said the reactor will be fully operational by June 28, according to Reuters. This now brings to one the number of reactors that remain offline. The 1,000-MW Shin Wolsong 1 reactor is offline due to the expiration of its operating license in 2012.
