purpose - Nuclear reactor 3 of the center in the Belgian Doel has automatically turned itself off on Tuesday night. This is reflected in a notice on the website of outgoing engineer Engie Electrabel.
The reactor fell silent by a steam valve problem in the non-nuclear part of the reactor, says a spokesman for Belga press office. According to the company, the reactor is reopened Wednesday at midnight.
The nuclear reactor with four reactors is located north of Antwerp, near the Dutch border.
