Deal or Case news
NautaDutilh assisted longstanding clients ENGIE SA and Electrabel SA, alongside Slaughter and May, in reorganising their nuclear activities and in negotiating with the Belgian State to extend the operation of two nuclear power plants by ten years.

The aim is to restart the nuclear plants by November 2025 as a strategic measure to reduce Belgium's energy dependency and to secure electricity supply.

This agreement remains subject to approval by the European Commission – with consultation currently under way – and to the substantive vote on the legislative amendments.

This transition phase is critical to maintaining a stable and reliable energy supply and provides the necessary time and resources for a seamless energy transition. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the teams of ENGIE, Slaughter and May and NautaDutilh, whose dedication and expertise over the past year has made this complex project possible.
Dirk Van Gerven and Maxime Vanderstraeten
