In this paper we investigate the possible penetration of combined-cycle plants in the Belgian electricity generation system after the Belgian Government has not considered as appropriate the construction of a next nuclear plant at the present time. First the characteristic features of the Belgian production capabilities are given. The share of gas turbines, turbojets and already existing combined-cycle plants and their operation modes are emphasized. Then, alternative options to nuclear energy are presented, i.e. repowering of existing plants and construction of new combined-cycle plants. The potentialities of gas turbines and CC plants as well as their future in Belgium are investigated.

Finally we discuss the equipment plan for the Belgian generation system proposed by the management committee of the electrical plant operators.

From the results of our research about repowering, gas turbines and new CC plants, we derive recommendations for the future production means in Belgium.
