With the formulation of the near-term target for nuclear power generation, Nigeria will achieve a nuclear power network capacity of at least 1,000 MW from 2020 to 2022, and at least 4,000 MW by 2030.
It is reported that the Federal Government of Nigeria has activated the Nuclear Energy Program (NPP) and approved its implementation plan, and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has assisted the federal government in finalizing the plan implementation strategy.
Prof. M.NAgu, Commissioner for Nuclear Power Plant Development of the Nigerian Atomic Energy Commission (NAEC) said that assuming nuclear power will achieve its commercial operation, the deployment of nuclear power plants in Nigeria and its strategic implementation plan suggest that power generation in Nigeria's nuclear power plants will continue for 10 to 12 years.
He pointed out that the long-term development of national nuclear power will create favorable conditions for the vast financial investment community, and the implementation of various projects of the nuclear program includes preliminary meetings and activities.
Approval of the permit is a key factor in ensuring the successful and sustainable implementation of the project.
