The nuclear power stations in Belgium

Belgium has 7 nuclear power plants: 4 in Doel and 3 in Tihange. The 5 operational Belgian nuclear power plants together produce about a third of the country's total electricity consumption, without CO₂ emissions. Nuclear energy is important for Belgium, for guaranteeing the electricity supply 7 days a week and 24 hours a day, for achieving the climate objectives, for the competitiveness of electricity prices and for local employment.

Electrabel is responsible for the safe and professional operation of the 3 nuclear power plants in Doel and 2 in Tihange, and the safe decommissioning of Doel 3 and Tihange 2.
