One of the systems that pumps seawater into the condenser of the Fugen advanced thermal reactor in Tsuruga, Fukui Prefecture, stopped working around 10:50 a.m. Wednesday, prefectural officials said.

The officials said the reactor, operated by Japan Nuclear Cycle Development Institute, is still operating, although at reduced output, because the other pumping system is running smoothly.
