Government plans to open nuclear power plant in Bataan


Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi said that they are planning to restore the country's only nuclear power plant in Bataan. To address and guarantee the long haul supply of clean and cheap power.

The nuclear power plant was never used since it was built 4 decades ago with an expense of more than $2 billion.

According to GMA report, the project will require $1 billion investment in reviving the he mothballed 620-megawatt nuclear plant in Bataan province.

Cusi said one of the choices for the Philippines to meet its developing force needs, with yearly power request anticipated that would ascend by an average 5 percent until 2030.

"We have to weigh all our options, with emphasis not just on meeting capacity requirements, but sustainability and environmental obligations as well," Cusi said.

Cusi is not submitting any timetable for the concentrate, but rather he anticipates that the move will reignite dissents against the venture, particularly by earthy people and the Catholic Church contending restarting the plant is risky and costly. 

"We need to move away from fossil fuels like coal but nuclear energy is not safe and will also harm the people and environment," said Zaira Patricia Baniaga of the Philippine Movement for Climate Justice said.

The nation is joining more than two dozen different nations hoping to add nuclear power to their energy mix, including neighbors Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand.
