Struggling Utility Begs Trump For $3 Billion To Keep A Nuclear Power Plant Open

People look at the cooling towers of Doel's nuclear plant in northern Belgium August 20, 2014. Two Belgian nuclear reactors owned by GDF-Suez unit Electrabel may remain offline until spring and may need to be halted permanently, Belgian state broadcaster VRT reported on Tuesday. The Belgian nuclear regulator ordered production to be stopped at the 1,008 megawatt Tihange 2 reactor and the 1,006 megawatt Doel 3 reactor in 2012 after finding indications of cracks in their core tanks. Electrabel was not immediately available for comment. REUTERS/Francois Lenoir
