  1. Kenya Plans its First Nuclear Power Plant

    By Editors of Power Engineering The Kenyan government plans to develop the first nuclear power plant in the country at a cost of $5 billion. The proposed 1,000-MW plant, due to enter service in 2027, is expected to help both the reliability and affordability of Kenya’s power grid, Bloomberg reported. Kenya currently generates 2,299 MW of electricity, mainly from geothermal wells and hydroelectric dams, and the country hopes to triple that capacity by 2020. Construction of the nuclear plant would begin by 2021. Government officials have finished a grid analysis and is now undertaking a feasibility study. Once the country has settled on a specific technology for the site, it will open the project to bids. Funding could come from both public-private partnerships and government-to-government agreements. The Kenyan and South Korean governments signed agreements promising to collaborate on designing, constructing and operating nuclear reactors earlier this year. Kenya hopes to build an additional 4,000-MW nuclear facility by 2033.
