Japan's Ohi nuclear reactor shuts down after fault
Japan court orders reactor closed
Japan's Ohi nuclear power station is being shut down, after a technical fault.
Pressure in a safety tank fell for no apparent reason, and although it is now back to normal, the plant's operators said they would "give the top priority to safety and find out the cause".
There was no release of radioactive material.
The closure will compound power difficulties in the wake of March's earthquake and tsunami.
There has been growing public disquiet over the continuing crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, which was damaged by the disaster.
Fukushima continues to leak radioactive material.
Pressure in a tank containing boric acid, which is used to slow down nuclear fission in emergencies, dropped on Friday at Ohi's No 1 reactor.
The reactor, 350 km (220 miles) west of Tokyo, has a capacity of 1.18m kW.
With the closure at Ohi, only 18 of Japan's 54 reactors remain operational.
Japanese expert urges would-be users of nuclear power to adopt alternative energy sources instead
As per common sense alternative energy companies shares like LDK, STP should reflect adoptation of the Green energy sources but money still does not flow in LDK at this stage.
