Chennai: The second 1,000 MW nuclear power unit at Kudankulam is expected to restart power generation on October 7, the Power System Operation Corporation Ltd (Posoco) said.

The mega nuclear power plant was shut down on August 4, due to hydrogen concentration in the stator.

The unit was earlier expected to restart generation on September 4.
