“Many advances have been made in recent days, on a significant number of crucial points, which is a delight for both parties. A delay is nevertheless necessary to reach an agreement that fully satisfies both parties,” reads a press release.

The government and Engie have been trying to agree for several months on extending the life of the Doel 4 and Tihange 3 reactors for the next ten years. The extension of the two power stations concerns the winters of 2026/2027 and beyond. “Many measures and numerous investments have already been put in place to guarantee security of supply by then. “, recalls the press release.
