Belgian nuclear reactor set to restart on July 1 after repairs

BRUSSELS, June 11 (Reuters) - A Belgian nuclear reactor, which has been offline since August, has been approved to restart, Belgium’s nuclear regulator FANC said on Tuesday.

Repairs to concrete degradation and am additional roof structure were made to the bunker of Tihange 2, which houses emergency systems, after deterioration was noticed in August during planned maintenance and the reactor was shut down.

The reactor, operated by Electrabel, part of France’s Engie, will restart on July 1, according to Engie’s planning. (Reporting by Daphne Psaledakis, editing by Robin Emmott)
