MNPC striving to table bill to safeguard nuclear power


Dateline 2017-01-24, Malaysiakini:

The Malaysia Nuclear Power Corporation (MNPC) hopes the bill to safeguard the country’s nuclear power will be tabled in Parliament next year at the latest.

The bill, which will replace the Atomic Energy Licensing Act 1984 (Act 304), will pave the way for the country to have its own nuclear power generator as early as 2030.

MNPC chief executive officer Mohd Zamzam Jaafar said even though the government had decided against having a nuclear power generator before 2030, its development programme was still progressing to ensure that the country would have clean energy sources by then.
