March 20 (Bloomberg) -- Belgium’s capacity to generate nuclear power will be halved by the end of this month as the Tihange-1 reactor is shut down, L’Echo reported.

Tihange-1 will be closed from March 30 through May 21 for maintenance, and the shut-down won’t affect customers, the Brussels-based newspaper reported today, citing a spokesperson for Electrabel SA, the Belgian subsidiary of GDF Suez SA.

The Tihange-2 and Doel-3 reactors were shut down previously, meaning that generation capacity will be halved for a month or two, L’Echo reported.
