South Korean Nuclear reactor resumes operation after six days' suspension.
The South Korean News Agency (YONHAP) quoted the Korean Hydro-Nuclear Power Agency as saying that the reactor No. 6 located in Yong Kwang city some 33- kilometers southwest of Seoul resumed operation again after the Nuclear Power Safety Panel allowed the resumption of the reactor's operation.
Yong Kwang city has five nuclear reactors with production capacity of 1000 megawatts each. The sixth nuclear reactor was constructed on 24 December 2002.
A spokesman on behalf of the Nuclear Plant operation department said that the fault was rectified, spare parts were replaced and operation testing was performed for the reactor.
