We have previously touched on Namibia's nuclear pursuit here.It appears the plans are very real indeed. Our uranium rich neighbour is pressing on with its plans to develop its rich uranium resources and intends to pursue uranium enrichment locally. It also plans to build its own nuclear electricity plant. Nuclear energy experts from Finland’s Nuclear and Radiation Authority are currently helping the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) to draft Namibia’s first ever nuclear policy, which is to be completed mid-2011, together with relevant laws. The plan is to generate electricity from the nuclear reactor by 2018. More details via IPS News.
