Site selection of nuclear power plant (NPP) is one of the most basic safety requirements in the process of building a nuclear power plant facility. This study implemented the process of NPP site selection in Peninsular Malaysia based on the consideration of seven safety criteria recommended by the Malaysian Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB). The criteria involved are geology and seismology, hydrology, population, meteorology, safety zone, facility, and environmental impact. Analyses used in this study are Digital Mapping, Feature Overlay Analysis and Decision Making Analysis. The process of site selection is divided into two stages - survey stage and selection stage. In the survey stage, four potential sites were identified using Digital Mapping and Feature Overlay Analysis of mandatory criteria in ArcGIS 9.3 software. In the selection stage, the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate sites were discussed based on the site safety criteria by AELB. The comparison of strengths and weaknesses is translated into triangular fuzzy numbers. Pair comparison matrices were built from the triangular fuzzy numbers to calculate the site’s ranking using Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process. The result of this study suggests candidate site 3 (CT3) in Mukim Jugra area in Kuala Langat district, Selangor State, as suitable NPP site for the construction of NPP in Peninsular Malaysia. The site criteria in CT3 have complied seven safety criteria based on the document ‘Guideline for Site Selection for Nuclear Power Plant’ published by AELB.
