Concerns at Belgium's nuclear power plant

Text size Aa Aa

In Belgium a nuclear reactor at the Tihange power plant has been closed down following signs that cracks have developed in the structure.

The news comes months after similar defects were detected in a reactor at the country’s other nuclear power plant at Doel.

Both structures were manufactured in the 1970s by Dutch company RDM which has since gone bankrupt.
