Submission + - Taiwan to shutter near-completed nuclear plant (india.com)

mdsolar writes: Taiwan's government said Thursday it would seal off a nuclear power plant due to open next year but repeatedly attacked as unsafe by the public, pending a referendum on its future.

Deputy economic affairs minister Woody Duh said maintenance fees could reach Tw$4 billion ($133 million) to shutter the power station for three years — the estimated time required to organise and hold the referendum.

In April, the government said it would halt construction after an estimated 28,500 protesters blockaded a main street in Taipei demanding the plant be scrapped. Police used water cannon to dislodge hundreds who refused to leave the scene, in clashes that left 40 people injured.
