S’pore can go nuclear safely

In Energy on 01/02/2020 at 6:13 am

Every now and then, when the anti-PAP paper warriors are so short of ideas to KPKB about, they raise the possibility of S’pore building a nuclear power station.

Many yrs ago I wrote

In 2008, I attended a seminar where a very senior Shell analyst dismissed the possibility of nuclear energy as an option for S’pore. He said that if a nuclear plant was sited on the NE side of S’pore, the safety or protection zone would stretch somewhere to the SW side of S’pore, in Jurong.

Nuclear power: will property prices implode?

Well things have changed

Mini nuclear reactors could be generating power in the UK by the end of the decade.

Manufacturer Rolls-Royce has told the BBC’s Today programme that it plans to install and operate factory-built power stations by 2029.

Mini nuclear stations can be mass manufactured and delivered in chunks on the back of a lorry, which makes costs more predictable.

So whenever a cybernut or one of Terry’s M’sian Indian goons KPKB about S’pore going nuclear, they don’t know anything small modular reactors (SMRs)

They are about 1.5 acres in size – sitting in a 10-acre space …

SMRs are so small that theoretically every [UK] town could have its own reactor

Imagine Ang Moh Kio, Tampines, Jurong, woodlands and Marine Parade each having their own SMR.

You heard this first here: in next yr’s National Day Rally Speech, PM will talk of SMRs.

My track record in predicting PM’s tots:

PM’s speech: Not juz a change of format

Ever wondered why PM wants to build polders?

  1. in around 2004, m’sian govt had wanted to build at least 1 nuclear power plant in southern johor, but then it didn’t have the funds to build it.
