The Belgian reactor Tihange 2 is Friday morning shut down. That has operator Engie Electrabel notified. Tihange 1 was Wednesday shut down once during the construction works a part of the building damaged was hit.

There is a malfunction in the steam generator in Tihange 2. The generator is located in “the non-nuclear part” of the central. It is not known how long the repair will take.

Tihange 2, since the reactormantel defects was found to exhibit also known as “the scheurtjesreactor’, was this year several times to shut down. Tihange 1 is probably Sunday again started.

Both power plants near the Walloon town of Huy are due to the regular interference under attack in the neighbouring countries the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg.
