Kyushu Electric Power Co. said Sunday it found a 1-cm hole in a pipe believed to have caused a small steam leak at one of the reactors at the recently restarted Genkai nuclear power plant in Saga Prefecture.

The leak at Genkai’s No. 3 reactor occurred in part of the steam production system and did not involve any radiation leaks. The reactor remains online and the utility is inspecting it.
