Niger Plans West African Nuclear Power Plant, President Says

July 18 (Bloomberg) -- Niger, the world’s sixth-largest uranium producer, plans to build a nuclear plant in cooperation with other countries in West Africa, President Mahamadou Issoufou said.

Demand for electricity in Niger alone is not enough to make the plant financially viable, he told journalists in the capital, Niamey, yesterday. He didn’t give any details on when or where the plant would be built, how big it would be or how much it may cost.
