BATAAN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT OCULAR INSPECTION. Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi (3rd from right) leads an ocular inspection of the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant which was completed in 1984 at a cost of US$2 billion, but never produced a single watt of electricity as it was mothballed. The DOE is now exploring the possibility of reviving the BNPP to augment the country’s power supply. With Sec. Cusi are (L-R) Program Director from Argonne National Laboratory of Illinois, USA Dr. Daniel Fraser, NPC Vice-President for Administrative and Finance Lorna Dy, Energy Undersecretary Donato D. Marcos, IAEA Deputy Director General
