“We should be able to switch on the nuclear power plant by 2030,” he emphasized.

Commenting on the progress made so far, Ing. Theo Nii Okai was confident his outfit would be granted the needed support to help in achieving the set objective.

“The initial cost of nuclear is very high just like hydro; but because the plants can last for a very long time, it means over that period, you will be able to recover and therefore sell the electricity very cheap because over the lifespan of the plant, you would have recouped your investment,” he noted.
