Renesas holds back on bringing its quake-torn Naka plant to resumption

Japanese automotive chipmaker Renesas Electronics Corp has said it will take three days longer than expected to bring its key Naka semiconductor plant back to normal operations after a powerful quake hit northeast Japan last week.

Renesas had expected “to reach close to full pre-earthquake production capacity on March 26.”

Renesas had estimated that the plant, which is running at 50% of capacity, would be back to normal by Wednesday.

Two other chip factories that shut down after the quake on March 16 have restored output, it added.
