Morocco’s AMSSNuR and Rwanda’s RURA signed a new collaborative nuclear energy deal on Monday.
Rabat – The Moroccan Agency for Nuclear and Radiological Safety and Security (AMSSNuR) has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority (RURA), reported ESI Africa on May 13.
In a joint press statement, General Director of AMSSNuR, Khammar Mrabit, and General Director of RURA, Patrick Nyirishema, illustrated that the new agreement aims at furthering bilateral collaboration between the two companies in areas related to nuclear energy use and radiological safety.
Khammar Mrabit said, in the joint press statement, that “nuclear safety industry encompasses more opportunities for strengthening the signed cooperation.”
“There is growing use of ionizing radiation in medical practices in the two countries, and here we can share a lot of experience and exchange information so as to improve the safety of the patients, the safety of the environment and the entire society in general,” added Mrabit.
Patrick Nyirishema noted that “there is a lot to learn” from the experience of AMSSNuR in the areas of capacity-building, nationally and institutionally.
Nyirishema also added that “we can also work with other regulators across Africa and strengthen this field of radiation protection and nuclear security within Africa and have a bigger voice on the global level.”
