ACCESS THE AFRICAN NUCLEAR MARKET
Sub-saharan Africa is hungry for energy, and nuclear power could be part of the answer for an increasing number of countries. A third of the almost 30 countries currently considering nuclear power are in Africa. Kenya, Ghana, Niger, Nigeria and Sudan have already engaged with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to assess their readiness to embark on a nuclear programme.
