Electrabel adjusted the end dates of the ongoing overhauls of Doel 1 – 2. Doel 1 and 2 are currently in a planned overhaul. This long overhaul was planned in order to extend the exploitation of the units for ten more years. As a result of an inspection program on a spare pipe of the back-up cooling water system of Doel 1, the necessary measures have been taken and have been extended preventively to Doel 2. Taken into account these elements, the overhaul period has been prolonged and the unavailability will be extended to December 10 for Doel 1 and December 31 for Doel 2. Only two of Belgium’s 7 reactors are currently operational.
