From Government of Indonesia

Regulation Soon on Nuclear Power

The government will soon issue a regulation on the licensing of nuclear reactors, paving the way for the construction of a nuclear power plant by 2010, an official said.

"The State Secretariat has verbally informed us of the regulation and will soon issue it," head of the Nuclear Energy Control Board (Bapeten) Sukarman Aminjoyo said on Friday (5/1/07).

The regulation will give the green light for the construction of a nuclear power plant at Mount Muria in Central Java in 2010, he said.

The power plant, with an initial capacity of 1,000 MW, is expected to start operating in 2017.
