South Africa - a new energy strategy
It is worth noting that the first consideration (about the locations of the SMR) may be very important for the conditions of South Africa.
The plan recognizes the existence of significant capacity constraints on power transmission in several regions of the country. Thus, in the period from 2013 to 2022, only about 4,000 km of transmission lines were built, while more than 14,000 km of transmission lines must be built by 2032.
Small modular reactors, however, will not be able to cover the needs of South Africa for new capacities if this country decides to finally start nuclear construction.
The new version of the IRP plan proposes five scenarios for the development of South African energy until 2050.
New nuclear facilities appear only in one of them,

Uganda chooses sites
Uganda is preparing to launch a program for the development of nuclear energy. The first nuclear kilowatt- hours in this African country should be produced in 2031, if, of course, everything goes according to plan.
An important part of the work that must be done at the early stages is the identification of candidate sites.
We mapped the whole country to see which site could house a nuclear power plant, and stopped at eight sites in the Buyende, Nakasongola, Kiruhura, Kasanda and Lamwo districts,said Robert Kilewa, a specialist in the atomic energy department of the Ugandan ministry of energy and mineral development.
Kileva took part in a seminar last week, the purpose of which was to raise awareness of the national media...

Nigeria announced a bid
Nigeria opened a bid for the construction of a nuclear power plant with a total power of 4 GWe. This was reported by several Nigerian media at once.
The total installed power of power plants in Nigeria is now 12.522 GW. These are mainly plants operating on fossil fuels and hydroelectric power plants. Thus, the nuclear power plant construction project, if successfully implemented, can increase the Nigerian fleet by about a third.
The public announcement of the bid was made by Director General of the Nigerian Nuclear Regulatory Agency (NNRA) Yau Idris. He did not provide any details.
The Nigerian power industry dates back to 1886, when the first 60 kW power plant was built in Lagos. Interest in...

Ghana will decide on the site before the end of the year
The Ghana Atomic Energy Commission (Nuclear Power Ghana, NPG) will complete by the end of 2022 the selection of a preferred site for the construction of the country's first nuclear power plant.
NPG head Prof. Benjamin J.B Nyarko explained in mid- February comments to the local press that four candidate sites are currently being explored.
In turn, the executive director of NPG Dr. Stephen Yamoah told reporters that the commission analyzes historical data for all four sites.
Upon completion of the work, NPG will prepare a report called Site Approval Report and submit it to the regulatory body for review and approval.
We received a lot of historical data from more than...

Niger: uranium hot spot
AREVA will return the foreign workers to the uranium deposits in Niger, which have been evacuated after the September seizure of seven hostages. The kidnappers demand the abolition of the ban on wearing Muslim headscarves in France, the release of their imprisoned comrades, and ransom payments to 7 million euros.
The epic of the hostages is far from complete, but the uranium business could not stand still. Niger - main uranium storeroom for French nuclear industry, and mines in the north of this country should not be left unattended.
The French press reported that AREVA will return to the Arlit and other northern cities Niger some staff. It will happen in the coming weeks. The company promises to make every effort to ensure the safety of its people and prevent a recurrence of the events of September.
On the night of September 16, unidentified gunmen kidnapped in Arlit five employees SATOM, one employee AREVA and his wife. Subsequently, it was clarified that the five kidnapped workers SATOM - three French, one citizen of Madagascar, and one citizen of Togo.
