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.

Africa Nuclear Business Platform 2019 was held in Nairobi, Kenya from 15-17 October. We had 200 participants from 28 different countries representing 113 companies. 73% of the participants were senior executive VPS, directors or higher. The conference discussed a wide range of topics such as financing, technology evaluation, site characterization, infrastructure, human resources, SMRs. The event brought together all the main technology providers EDF, Rosatom, CNNC (CZEC), Westinghouse as well as international organizations such as the IAEA, IFNEC and AFCONE. We had senior representatives from 11 African countries (Kenya, Ghana, Sudan, Côte d’Ivoire, South Africa, Uganda, Nigeria, Niger, Zambia, Tanzania, and Rwanda).

AFNBP 2020 will have 250-300 participants with all the key stakeholders across the nuclear supply chain present: emerging NPP stakeholders,government, regulators, NSSS vendors, construction companies, law firms, and financial firms. Concurrently there will be an exhibition featuring companies showcasing the latest technology, solutions and products. The main focus of the event is on new build in Africa.
