Singapore Nuclear Editorials

Time for Singapore to say 'Yes' to nuclear
We can indeed do this, if our NPPs are on floating platforms. Former minister mentor Lee Kuan Yew stated in 2008, when contemplating the prospect of NPPs to serve Singapore's energy needs:"I was thinking at one time about a floating platform. Put a nuclear station there and, if it blows, then we move it a few kilometres away from us."
Not the image you want in the public's mind.

Singapore looking into two energy sources for sustainability: DPM Teo
SINGAPORE is looking into two areas of energy sources for developments in sustainability, and it remains committed to the Paris Agreement, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean said at Temasek Holdings' Ecosperity conference on Monday. In a question posted by Chan Heng Chee - who moderated a discussion with Mr Teo - about the possibility of a fossil fuel-free Singapore, Mr Teo said that the government is pushing in the areas of solar energy and nuclear power. On nuclear power, Mr Teo said that the current generation of nuclear power plants is not suitable for Singapore at this stage but is a possibility in generations to come.
Singapore's green push focuses on 4 fronts
Singapore's push for sustainable development fires on four fronts covering the economy, living environment, its people and international collaboration, said Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean. As part of the push to reduce Singapore's environmental footprint, the Government is also looking at ways to tap renewable energy sources, particularly solar and nuclear power. As for nuclear power, he said the present generation of power plants is not suitable for Singapore. "We may have to wait out two generations of nuclear power plants," he added. The Ecosperity conference was organised by investment firm Temasek Holdings and brought together policymakers, business people and thought leaders to discuss sustainable growth.

Does anybody have a good feel for thorium systems and/or floating power barges being placed in Indonesia/Malaysia with regard to Singapore's opinions? Could Singapore effectively outsource nuclear power to Malaysia?
