“We have two plants currently operating, we are building a third one and we are planning to build four more plants,” he said, but did not specify a timeline for the building of new plants.
The four nuclear plants will be built after a security revision of the two plants currently in operation have been completed, Lobao said.
Lobao said the security conditions at all the Brazilian plants had been checked following the nuclear incident earlier this year in Japan and all studies had concluded that there was no risk of a similar accident happening in Brazil.
