Nuclear power is considered as one of the best option for future energy development in Malaysia. Since Malaysia has no experience in nuclear energy generation, commissioning the first nuclear power plant needs tremendous effort in various aspects. Site selection is one of the important steps in nuclear power plant commissioning process. The candidate selection process uses the IAEA and AELB document as reference, supported by site selection procedure by various countries. The parameters used are geology, seismology, meteorology, population distribution (demography), safety zones, and emergency support criteria in the candidate area. MapInfo Professional and HotSpot software were used to simulate the selection process for candidate areas for the nuclear power plant. This paper concluded that Mukim Tenggaroh in Mersing district in Johor is the most suitable candidate area for 1 km2 nuclear power plant facilities.
