Napocor (National Power Corp.) will sign a memorandum of understanding with the Korea-based Korea Electric power Corp. (KepCo) to conduct feasibility study on the rehabilitation of the Bataan Nuclear power Plant (BNPP).

Estrella Alabastro, Science and Technology secretary, said that while this study is being done, the government is focused on educating people about nuclear power and creating a pool of competitive nuclear scientists.

In addition, she said that the government has funded the development of human resources in nuclear engineering to create crops of nuclear scientists and technical experts that will study various aspects in nuclear power plant operations such as sitting, safety and security, transport of nuclear fuel, health and environment impact, social acceptability and disposal.

DE (Department of Energy) had sought the help of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, Austria in assessing BNPP.

IAEA said that the government has to assess what the new licensing requirements should be, how to modernize the two decade old technology to current standards and how to confirm that all aspects of the plant will function properly and safely.
