Belgian nuclear reactor shut down three days after restarting

Electrabel's Doel 1 reactor in northern Belgium was restarted on December 30, 2015 and then shut down again on January 2, 2016An ageing Belgian nuclear reactor shut down on Saturday afternoon, just three days after it was restarted, but there was no safety risk, the power utility that operates it said. The Doel 1 reactor in northern Belgium was restarted on December 30, after originally being shut down in February in line with a law that called for the country’s gradual exit from nuclear power. Belgium agreed last month to extend the life of Doel 1 and Doel 2, both of which are 40 years old, until 2025 under a deal that ended years of battles that threatened the country with power blackouts.
