One of Belgium’s seven nuclear reactors will remain closed until the end of the year, according to its operators.

It could cause power shortages when demand is high next winter and may lead to a price hike.

Reactor 4 at Doel nuclear power plant came to an automatic standstill two weeks ago after oil leaked from a turbine. Sabotage has not been ruled out.
