203

Russian nuclear state corporation Rosatom and the Ministry of Mines, Quarries and Energy of Burkina Faso signed a roadmap for establishing cooperation on peaceful use of nuclear energy at the Atomexpo 2024 forum, the press service of the state corporation reported.

“The road map defines concrete steps to build the West African country’s human resources capacity in the field of peaceful nuclear energy, develop nuclear infrastructure and create a positive public opinion regarding nuclear energy in Burkina Faso,” the statement said.

Based on the results of the formation of an international legal framework for cooperation, the parties intend to work on implementing nuclear generation projects and non-energy applications of radiation technologies in agriculture and medicine in Burkina Faso.

In 2023, the Minister of Mines, Quarries and Energy of Burkina Faso, Simon-Pierre Boussim, announced that his country expects to build a nuclear power plant in the country by 2030. Respectively, the Ministry of Mines, Quarries and Energy of Burkina Faso and Rosatom signed a relevant memorandum of understanding.
