Outrage over French N-bid

Article from: Herald-Sun
A FRENCH bid to build an atomic reactor in Australia has sparked outrage,
with memories of its nuclear testing in the Pacific still fresh.
Labor and green groups have condemned the plan by France's state-owned Areva company to export its nuclear technology Down Under.
In a detailed submission to the Howard Government's nuclear taskforce,
Areva said nuclear energy was viable in Australia and would ease the drought by powering desalination plants.
The company confirmed it was "very interested" in breaking into a future nuclear industry in Australia, and recommended large reactors over smaller ones.
Mr Albanese said Labor was still waiting for an answer from the Prime Minister on where he would build a reactor.
Greenpeace Australia-Pacific chief executive Steve Shallhorn said it was clear that nuclear "vultures" were circling in the hope of huge profits.
"I think it's outrageous, given France's history in the South Pacific, that they have the cheek to come and offer to build a reactor in Australia.
"It would be a mistake for Australia to invest in nuclear technology, but it would be an even bigger mistake to invest in French nuclear technology," he said.
Mr Shallhorn warned that Areva's latest reactor in Finland
was beset by problems.
The first of the so-called "third generation" reactors, it was running late and over budget, wiping $300 million off Areva's bottom line, he said.
Industry and Resources Minister Ian Macfarlane said it was premature to speculate which companies might build a nuclear plant in Australia.
"We first need to determine whether there is an economic and environmental case for nuclear energy in this country," he said.
