Malaysia’s nuclear power plants dream far from definite


Shucks, I had a gamma ray chamber all set up, and Dr. Horrible was going to preside the opening.

Dateline 2018-02-08, Malaysian Reserve:

Malaysia is unlikely to put into motion any concrete plans to build the country’s first two nuclear power plants before 2030.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said the government is not expected to commit to the 2030 target due to the complexity of the issue and the need for a detailed study before such implementations.

“We also do not want to panic the public. At the same time, the government wants to learn more (about the technology) before embarking on it,” she told The Malaysian Reserve in a recent interview.

Malaysia had initially planned to commission the country’s first and second nuclear plants in 2021 and 2022 respectively, as outlined under the Economic Transformation Programme.
