Belgium has a total installed capacity of 19,242 megawatt (MW) with nuclear capacity of 5,926 MW as of 2010. The country has seven operable nuclear power reactors which are of Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) type. The first nuclear power reactor in the country was operated in 1974. The nuclear generation was about 46 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) for 2010. The nuclear power contribution is about 51.7% of the countrys total electricity generation. One nuclear power reactor has been shut down and is under decommissioning phase. Electrabel S.A. is the key player in the Belgian nuclear power industry. Belgium is mostly dependent on imported energy and the country had indigenous sources of coal but they have been exhausted. Nuclear energy plays an important role in the Belgian electricity generation mix.
