The shutdown of the Tihange 2 nuclear reactor extended until 17 November. The nuclear reactor Tihange 2, stopped since October 6, will not be operational before November 17, announced Friday its operator, Engie Electrabel. When shut down, the group reported that the reactor would be out of service for about two weeks. On 6 October, Engie Electrabel detected a problem at a pump, where the temperature was too high, located in the nuclear part of the plant. The company therefore decided to put the reactor into question at a standstill as a precautionary measure. A maintenance intervention is required on this cooling circuit pump which had a higher temperature than the standard. An intervention is also needed on the non-nuclear part, said a spokeswoman Friday.
