Maxime

Speaking at the Russia-Africa forum in Sochi, Russian President Vladimir Putin said his government was offering African countries an opportunity to use nuclear technology. Rwanda was the latest to jump on board raising the expansion of the energy source to 18 countries.

Rosatom, the Russian state atomic company is building a $29 billion nuclear plant for Egypt. The same company is helping Uganda, the Republic of Congo and Rwanda establish their nuclear facilities. South Africa is the only country in the continent with a nuclear power plant.

"Rosatom is prepared to help our African partners in creating a nuclear industry,” said President Putin in Sochi. He said the company would be helping with “the construction of research centers based on multifunctional reactors."

In Rwanda, Rosatom will construct the Center of Nuclear Science and Technologies. In Nigeria, a planned Rosatom nuclear reactor may provide the West African nation with electricity.
