Russia's state-owned atomic energy agency Rosatom has said it remains an "interested vendor" as South Africa restarts its scaled-down nuclear power procurement programme.

Sub-Saharan Africa remains a "priority" area for it, said Rosatom, adding it was "actively working" with several African countries "to assist them in reaching their nuclear ambitions".

The group is constructing the 4 800 MW El Dabaa Nuclear Power Plant in Egypt, at an estimated cost of $25 billion. When finished, it will be Africa's second operational nuclear power plant after Koeberg near Cape Town.
