Implementation of the Ghanaian nuclear program

Implementation of the Ghanaian nuclear program

The group chosen by the government for preliminary studies and data collection for the implementation of the Ghanaian nuclear program should quickly activate for the realization of this project. 

Indeed, the country plans to introduce this type of fuel in its energy mix, over the next 10 to 15 years, to ensure affordable energy to promote its industrial development. 

The Ghanaian authorities had already announced in 2013 that it was “high time to consider the nuclear option” with a project to build a 500 MW plant with the support of the Japanese company TEPSCO. The current ambition of the country is to build by 2030, 2 GW of nuclear power plants. 

Indeed, Ghana is one of the ten African states that have announced their intentions to build nuclear power plants. 

By 2025, in addition to South Africa, at least five African countries will have nuclear power plants. 

The African continent is full of essential uranium reserves, and Africa has become a new market for the promoters of this expensive technology. A rush to nuclear energy encouraged by China, Russia, and France.
