Russian company to build mini-hydro plant in SA

Rosatom recently exhibited and presented its latest nuclear and renewable technologies. The conference attracted more than 3000 attendees from the local and international power sector. Delivering a presentation during the event’s nuclear forum, the company’s regional vice-president for sub-Saharan Africa, Viktor Polikarpov, highlighted the company’s solutions for the African continent. He noted that the continent drastically needed to increase its installed capacity and should strive towards achieving a balanced and environmentally friendly energy mix. A growing number of African nations had recently shown great interest in developing nuclear, not only to close their current generation gaps but also to secure the immense amount of power needed to make future economic and social ambitions a reality. The company is also involved in mini-hydro solutions and plans to sign its first contract for a 2 MW mini-hydro power plant in South Africa.
