Nuclear: Finally a parliamentary debate on the safety of fuel pools

Greenpeace Belgium 5th June 2018 , Nuclear: Finally a parliamentary debate on the safety of fuel pools.
Greenpeace is pleased that the Subcommittee on Nuclear Safety has decided
to discuss the report “The safety of nuclear reactors and fuel storage
pools in France and Belgium and the related reinforcement measures” [1],
commissioned by the environmental protection association to 7 independent
international experts and sent last October to the competent authorities.

Only children close their eyes to remove a danger,” said Eloi Glorieux,
nuclear expert at Greenpeace and one of the three speakers of the
Subcommittee of the day. “That our MPs behave as adults and debate nuclear
security today, we can only rejoice.

It is now necessary for Engie-Electrabel to do the same and to take the appropriate measures to
better protect the power stations against external attacks. ” In October,
for security reasons, Greenpeace sent the full report only to the
Director-General of the Crisis Center, the director of the FANC and the
Minister of the Interior and Security, Mr. Jambon. In order to fuel the
public debate, the association had called for a parliamentary debate on the
content of the report. It will have taken months before it can be done,
after the members of the Subcommittee were able, under strict conditions,
to consult the report.
