Pakistan Plans More Nuclear Plants

The Chairman of the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) stated that the country plans more nuclear power plants to help end Pakistan’s dependence on oil, gas and other sources of energy that produce 1.8 million tons of CO2 per year.

PAEC Chairman Pervez Butt said in the face of global warming caused by greenhouse gases coming from conventional power production modes, nuclear was the future energy. It can be witnessed in the shape of its resurgence world wide where it has a vital role to play because of its inherent virtues in the areas of safety, cost competitiveness, reliability, abundance of availability and its environment-friendly nature, the PAEC chief maintained.

Currently Pakistan has two operational nuclear reactors producing 425 MWe, with a single 300 MWe reactor planned, according to data from the World Nuclear Association.
