“The quest to provide more power for sustained economic development led Ghana to opt for nuclear power in 2007. The country has since worked to complete the first of the IAEA’s three-milestone criteria for the establishment of a nuclear power programme. Construction of the plant is expected to start from 2023-2029, and generate about 1200 megawatts of power to the national grid and also to supply the West Africa Power pool. Being capital intensive, the government is seeking financial assistance from Russia, China or Korea to build the power plant which is estimated at US $10billion and projected to be operational by 2029. The successful completion and operation of the plant in Ghana would make the country the second in sub-Saharan Africa after South Africa to have a nuclear power plant.This Conference therefore presents the perfect opportunity for the country to clinch ideas from leaders in nuclear power construction and operational management while receiving insights into different financing models for Ghana’s first-ever nuclear power plant.”
