Any introduction of nuclear energy for electricity generation will involve a commitment of at least a century from the “government” and all stakeholders, says the Malaysia Nuclear Power Corporation (MNPC).

Director Datuk Dr Dominic Lau Hoe Chai said this included the commitment to maintain a sustainable national infrastructure, right from planning, selection of suitable sites, construction, commissioning and operation of the nuclear power plants to decommissioning, as well as, waste disposal and management.

“This requires a sound basis of national decision making founded on objective studies and assessment of national capabilities and state preparedness, supported by public awareness, understanding and acceptance,” he told a seminar on “Public Understanding of Nuclear Energy” here today.
