Why are Tihange 2 and Doel 3 even more dangerous than “normal” nuclear power plants?

In one of the most important components of a nuclear power plant, the reactor pressure vessel RVP, there are thousands of cracks up to 18 cm in diameter. The nuclear fission takes place in the reactor pressure vessel. The RPV must not burst under any circumstances, because then a core melt can no longer be prevented. However, the cracks can become larger under difficult operating conditions, for example an emergency shutdown, and the RPV can explode. Independent experts have conducted a detailed investigation.
