RTBF: Belgium Suspends Nuclear Power Plant’s Reactor Due to Nuclear Power Denial
BRUSSELS, September 24 – RIA Novosti. Belgium began shutting down one of the operating reactors at the Widow nuclear power plant in the Antwerp region on Friday evening as part of its program to completely phase out nuclear power. knowledgeable Belgian TV channel RTBF.
We are talking about the reactor of the third power unit of the widow nuclear power plant, which has been operating for 40 years and can provide up to ten percent of the electricity consumption in Belgium.
At the end of last year, the Belgian ruling coalition decided to shut down all operating nuclear reactors by 2025. At the same time, the crisis in Ukraine and the sharp rise in energy prices forced the government to reconsider its decision and keep the two reactors until 2035.
However, some politicians insist on expanding the operation of other reactors in the face of the energy crisis in the EU and the sharp rise in electricity prices.
