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 Decommissioning and Remote Systems topical meeting (D&RS 2014) serves as a forum for the discussion of the regulatory, scientific, and technical aspects of decontamination, decommissioning, and reutilization, along with the remote technologies being developed and demonstrated to improve worker safety and efficiency. The 2014 topical program included commercial, government, and international project updates as well as project management, regulatory, and technology developments in the areas of decommissioning, nuclear material handling, waste management, site closure, and legacy management.
