When Kenya chooses to move forward with plans to build nuclear power facilities to help meet the nation’s expanding energy demands, an upgrade to the present national grid would be necessary.
The present network is insufficient to support a nuclear power station, according to a Strategic Environmental and Social Assessment (SESA) for the Kenya Nuclear Power Plan.
Nuclear power facilities are anticipated to get dependable, off-site power from the electrical grid.
The present national grid will be upgraded with new transmission lines, connecting equipment, and spinning reserves.
Kenya’s desire to build a nuclear power station is motivated by the anticipated rise in energy consumption as the nation strives to become a middle-income economy by 2030.
