Nissan: Wrecked Japan Plant Will Resume Output in June

Wednesday, 30 Mar 2011 10:20 AM

Nissan Motor Co. said Wednesday that an engine plant wrecked by the March 11 tsunami won't return to operations until June and it will take "some time" before auto production runs at full capacity.

Nissan spokesman Mitsuru Yonekawa said the Iwaki factory, one of Nissan's two engine plants in Japan, still has no running water. The factory makes 376,000 engines annually.

Nissan shut down its entire auto production in Japan from March 14-16. Nissan said all its auto plants are now running at limited capacity due to parts shortages.

Yonekawa said it would take "some time" for Nissan to resume auto production at full capacity.

The company said the tsunami, which decimated much of industrial northeastern Japan, would result in a production loss of 55,000 cars by the end of March.
