TOKYO, April 6 (Reuters) - Pan Pacific Copper, Japan's biggest copper smelter, said it plans to produce 278,000 tonnes of refined copper in April-September, up 4.7 percent from the same period a year ago.

The strong gain will come off a low base a year ago, when many smelters in Japan were forced to suspend or reduce output due to damage from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
