Marcos Jr eyeing deal with Korean firm to revive Bataan nuclear plant

-

As part of his drive for “green” energy sources, Presidential Aspirant Bongbong Marcos is looking into reviving the dormant Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP), a project launched by his father.

“Let’s look at it again. Mayroon tayong BNPP. Mayroon ‘yang tinatawag na mga sister plants kasi Westinghouse ang gumawa dito sa Pilipinas,” the politiko said in a statement.

Marcos said there’s an available partner for the venture:

“Mayroon silang ginawa sa Korea na ganun din na pareho. Halos pareho ‘yung design lahat naman ‘yan custom made pero yung mga basic technologies na gagamitin sa BNPP ginawa nila sa Korea ay napakaganda,” Marcos added.

The Kori nuclear facilities in Busan are operated by Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power, a part of KEPCO. Westinghouse was the manufacturer of the reactors.

“We haven’t heard any problems from the nuclear power plants in Korea so I think we can look at it. Let’s follow the science, let’s not make it political,” the politiko added.

According to energy experts, the Bataan facility is no longer serviceable after being dormant for decades and having its parts neglected.
