Kenya’s Nuclear Electricity Project Committee says the country’s first nuclear power plant will be completed by 2022. The country decided this year to construct the plant to increase generating capacity and clean energy development. The project will need an investment of 290 million US dollars.

The Kenyan government says it has fully analysed Japan’s nuclear disaster in March 2011, and made corresponding preparations for the planned power plant. Scientists have been sent to study in China, the US and other countries with advanced nuclear technologies. Kenya mainly relies on hydropower for its energy supply, but has been suffering from electricity shortages.
