No decision yet on building nuke power plants in M’sia


Build, already.

Dateline 2016-11-04, Daily Express:

The government has yet to make any decision on the construction of nuclear power plants in Malaysia, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri.

Although the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) targeted the nuclear power plant to be operational by 2021, she said the date would be postponed as the government needed to take into account latest developments and prevailing sentiments at home and abroad, especially regarding the impact of March 2011 tsunami on the Japanese nuclear power programme.

“Initial information obtained from the feasibility study shows that the timeline required for the implementation and completion of the nuclear power plant is at least 11 years from the date the government made the decision,” she said when replying to Datuk Noor Ehsanuddin Mohd Harun Narrashid (BN-Kota Tinggi) at the Dewan Rakyat sitting Thursday.
