Belgian nuclear regulator tells govt not to extend oldest reactors

BAmerica Hernandez and Charlotte Campenhout, BRUSSELS, March 6 (Reuters) – Belgium’s nuclear regulator has advised the government against a life extension of the country’s three oldest reactors, despite the risk of a gap in electricity supply over the next two winters.

Instead, it proposed adjusting the life extension plans of two newer reactors so that safety upgrades are staggered, keeping the power on during the coming crunch period.

The proposal was in a written opinion submitted to the government by the regulator and seen by Reuters on Monday. The document has not been made public yet but the regulator, FANC, confirmed its authenticity to Reuters……………………………….  https://www.reuters.com/business/energy/belgian-nuclear-regulator-tells-govt-not-extend-oldest-reactors-2023-03-06/
