No plan of building nuclear power plant in Hong Kong

Due to the Fukushima nuclear crisis, Power Assets Holdings Ltd, having a subsidiary company to provide electricity in Hong Kong Island, does not plan to generate electricity by nuclear power for now.

Since the amount of main traditional fuels like coal and natural gas used to generate electricity plummeted in this decade, electronic companies over the world are now trying different renewable energies to solve the problem of insufficient fuels. However, while most of the renewable energies are not applicable in Hong Kong, the Fukushima nuclear crisis has made those company give up the idea of using cheap but powerful nuclear energy. “The nuclear leak in Japan raised the issue of the problems of using nuclear power, the storage of the power, and the processing of nuclear waste material,” said Esme Lau, the Public Affairs Manager of Power Assts Holding Ltd, in a talk to Hong Kong Shue Yan University students. “Although the incident in Japan was only a special case and the use of nuclear power is still safe technically, we don’t consider nuclear power at this stage because of the misgivings among the public.”


The use of traditional fuels also raises the issue of air pollution. As it difficult to use renewable energies in Hong Kong, Power Assets Holdings Ltd keeps using coal, and has started using natural gas to generate electricity. “Although we are still using traditional fuels, there is strict control over the exhaust gas emission during electricity generation,” said Esme. She believes that well emission management can keep the lowest amount of pollutants and cause the least damage to the environment.
