  1. Bataan Nuclear Power Plant First in Southeast Asia

    Bataan Nuclear Power Plant is a nuclear power plant, completed but never fueled, on Bataan Peninsula, 100 kilometres west of Manila in the Philippines. It is located on a 3.57 square kilometre government reservation at Napot Point in Morong, Bataan.

    Construction on the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant began in 1976. Following the 1979 Three Mile Island accident in the United States, construction on the BNPP was stopped, and a subsequent safety inquiry into the plant revealed over 4,000 defects.Among the issues raised was that it was built near major earthquake fault lines and close to the then dormant Mount Pinatubo.
    By 1984, when the BNPP was nearly complete, its cost had reached $US2.3 billion.Equipped with a Westinghouse light water reactor, it was designed to produce 621 megawatts of electricity.

    Ferdinand Marcos' last words to Cory Aquino was hoping she would open the Bataan Power Plant
