The Japan Times reported that Kyushu Electric Power’s (TYO:9508) Unit 2 Sendai reactor began operating at full capacity on November 1, two weeks after the initial restart, with its thermal output now reaching the maximum level.
As quoted in the market news:

No major problems occurred in the process, the company said.
Kyushu Electric plans to bring the reactor into commercial operation as early as mid-November after it clears examinations by the Nuclear Regulation Authority.
The utility restarted the No. 2 reactor of the Sendai plant, located in Satsumasendai, Kagoshima Prefecture on Oct. 15 by removing control rods. Power generation and transmission at the plant started on Oct. 21. The No. 2 reactor was the second reactor in Japan to be brought back online under the country’s stricter safety standards introduced after the March 2011 accident at Tokyo Electric power Co.’s stricken Fukushima No. 1 plant.
