Tihange (in progress) Age, breakdowns and terrorist threat increase international concerns about the safety of the Belgian nuclear power plants. Since the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011 these plants are under a magnifying glass; shutdown or not? What would a shutdown of the plant mean for the region? What is the impact of the plant on the residents of the village? How does it feel to have a nuclear power plant in your backyard? Are there sufficient precautions and do residents know how to act in case of an emergency?
I’m working on a long-term project in the Belgian village Tihange.
