The Public Service Accountability Monitor (PSAM) says a key assessment document for the proposed pebble bed nuclear reactor was fatally flawed.
PSAM says that a decision on whether to go ahead with a Pebble Bed Modular Reactor (PBMR) demonstration project involve choices on the use of substantial public resources.
It says that the socio-economic impact assessment (SEIA) carried out on the project did not give the public the information it needed to participate meaningfully in these decisions. It further says that the SEIA was based on a proposal for a 400 megawatt demonstration unit.
