Indonesia plans to build its first major nuclear power plant by 2015 and has been offered assistance by four foreign companies, its energy minister said Saturday. Indonesian Energy Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro said bidding for construction of the 1,000-megawatt plant would open in 2007. The power plant will be constructed on Mutia Peninsula in East Java, he said on the sidelines of a developing nations conference. He said companies from South Korea, Japan and France have offered to provide technology, but didn't specify the nationality of the fourth company.
