Senegal’s Wade Scraps Nuclear Power Plans After Japan Quake

April 1 (Bloomberg) -- Senegal canceled plans to build what would have been the first African nuclear power plant outside of South Africa, President Abdoulaye Wade told a cabinet meeting yesterday.

The West African nation had ordered nuclear equipment from a Russian company, Wade said in an e-mailed statement, without identifying the company.

In the aftermath of a March 11 earthquake in Japan, which has placed the Pacific nation’s nuclear reactors at risk, Wade canceled that order, according to the statement.
