Kenya signs nuclear deal with China

ABN – Kenya is gearing up to add nuclear power to its energy mix after signing a landmark deal with China.

The deal is intended to help build a 1000-megawatt nuclear power plant in Kenya by 2025, and 4000 megawatts of nuclear capacity by 2033.

Kenya Nuclear Electricity Board (KNEB) said the memorandum of understanding would enable Kenya to “obtain expertise from China by way of training and skills development, technical support in areas such as site selection for Kenya’s nuclear power plants and feasibility studies”.

The East African country already has nuclear power cooperation agreements with South Korea, where 10 Kenyan students are currently studying nuclear power engineering, and Slovakia.

South Africa is currently the only country in sub-Saharan Africa with active nuclear power plants.
