SEOUL, Sept. 3 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's nuclear safety agency on Monday approved the restart of a nuclear power plant that was shut down three months ago for scheduled maintenance.

The Nuclear Safety and Security Commission made the decision after completing the planned maintenance of the Hanul 3 reactor in Uljin, 330 kilometers southeast of Seoul. The 1,000-megawatt reactor went offline on June 11 for scheduled maintenance.

The reactor is set to start operating at full capacity later this week.

Currently, South Korea operates 24 nuclear reactors that generate 27 percent of its total power.
