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.

The Special Committee on Source Terms was appointed in June of 1982 by ANS President L. Manning Muntzing, following an ad hoc meeting of interested ANS members during the June ANS Meeting in Los Angeles. The mandate given to and subsequently elaborated by the Committee was to review and evaluate the state of knowledge of how to predict a source term deriving from a severe core damage accident, and to summarize the results prepared by several investigating organizations. The state of knowledge and summary were to be compared to WASH-1400, the Reactor Safety Study, which was published in 1975. This document contains the Committee’s reports on these subjects.
