Belgium mulls life extension for more reactors
The Belgian government is exploring the idea of extending the operational life of its three oldest reactors by two years, a variety of news outlets are reporting.
Those reactors—Units 1 and 2 at the Doel facility and Unit 1 at Tihange, sporting a combined capacity of 1,852 MWe—were slated to be permanently shuttered in 2025 in keeping with the country’s nuclear phase-out policy.

This session focuses on the enablement of operational artificial intelligence at scale within the landscape of a broader utility digital transformation which focuses on advanced analytics, digital platform and mobile application development, and robotic process automation. As AI has evolved over the last couple of decades, the industry strategy has shifted from scattered and ambiguous capabilities to solutions that have (1) focused business value and use case, (2) design and control processes for AI-friendly data, (3) harnessing the utility enterprise resources to classify/tag images and data, (4) democratization of AI model low-code/no-code development, and (5) plug and play end-point device capabilities to leverage AI in the field. Discussions in this session will include the linkage of ML modeling to quantify risk and integrate into work management and decision-making processes, tactical AI algorithm development for object detection and condition assessments, and leveraging new forms of data (e.g. photogrammetry, LiDAR, etc.) across an exponentially increasing spectrum of structured, unstructured and streaming information.
