On December 24, Electrabel had said the unit would return to service January 7, seven weeks ahead of schedule.

A further advance in the reactor's return eases supply concerns after delays to Doel 1 and Doel 2 (2 x 433 MW) were announced December 19. Doel 2's return was pushed back four weeks to January 28, while that of Doel 1 was deferred six weeks to March 15.

Once Tihange 3 is back, Belgian nuclear availability will rise to 4 GW. Belgium has seven reactors for a total 5.943 GW.

The reactor has been offline since late March for concrete degradation repairs and maintenance.
