Nairobi - A pre-feasibility study on the viability of a nuclear power plant in Kenya is projected to take two years at a cost of KES. 254 million shillings (Euro 2.3 million).
In a statement to Capital News, Ochillo Ayacko, Executive Chairman of the Nuclear Electricity Development Project said the government plans to spend KES. 141 million on the study to determine the site to build the country’s first nuclear power plant.
Ayacko went on to add that they want to see the size of Kenya's grid and market to determine the potential of the counties that are likely to host a nuclear power plant, and this can only be done from a national study.
