Belgium to extend life of two nuclear reactors by 10 years

World A- A A+

Belgium has reached an agreement with French utility Engie to extend the life of two nuclear reactors by 10 years, the prime minister said on Monday, overturning a plan to exit nuclear power in 2025 as the war in Ukraine has changed energy strategy, Reuters informs. 

The Doel 4 and Tihange 3 reactors - the newest of Belgium's seven reactors - were due to close for good in 2025 but will now restart in November 2026 after necessary work and will continue operating for 10 years.

"The extension of these two nuclear reactors is crucial to guarantee our energy security," Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo told a news conference after meeting cabinet members.
