POWER-GEN & DistribuTECH Africa will be held from 18 to 20 July 2017

The topical issue of nuclear power and its role in Africa will come under discussion in a one day nuclear forum to be held in Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg.

The forum will take place at the Nuclear Theatre on the exhibition floor and is free to attend.

Featuring local and international experts and delegates from Russian energy group Rosatom, a contender for South Africa’s nuclear expansion project, the One Day Nuclear Forum will be a major highlight on the programme at POWER-GEN & DistribuTECH Africa – the continent’s premier power sector platform.

“Countries across Africa, including Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia are reported to be considering nuclear power, while South Africa is on the brink of embarking on a new phase of nuclear development. Amid this renewed focus on the potential for nuclear energy, our nuclear panel discussions and Rosatom’s participation in POWER-GEN & DistribuTECH Africa have raised keen interest in the past. This prompted our launch of the one day forum for in-depth discussions on the opportunities and risks of nuclear energy in Africa,” Nigel Blackaby, PennWell International Power Group Director of Conferences. 

The forum, to be staged at POWER-GEN & DistribuTECH Africa, is designed to raise awareness and understanding of the key issues around nuclear energy. Among the issues to be discussed will be Unpacking South Africa’s Nuclear Strategy and What Africa can learn from world nuclear programmes.

Viktor Polikarpov, Regional Vice President, Sub-Saharan Africa at Rosatom will also present Rosatom’s Solutions for Empowering Africa.

The POWER-GEN & DistribuTECH Africa event will be held from 18 to 20 July 2017.
