tihange - Again delay the restart of the Belgian reactor Tihange 1. The repair of a building in the non-nuclear part of the plant longer than planned, can be read Thursday on the website of Engie operator Electrabel.

The reactor was shut down in September after the damage to the building are auxiliary pumps. Tihange 1 was after major service about a month in operation. The duration of the repairs is obviously difficult to plan because the restart was previously scheduled for November, late December and mid-February. It is now February 28th.

Netherlands and other neighboring countries worry about the security of the two Belgian nuclear power plants, which have a total of seven reactors. Tihange is located about 50 kilometers southwest of Maastricht.
