Eskom to hold tender for building six nuclear reactors in South Africa

This week, Eskom, a South African electricity public utility, is going to a tender for construction of six nuclear reactors, IOL reports citing the company’s director general.


As it was reported earlier, Russian State Energy Corporation of Rosatom, as well as companies from China, France, the USA and South Korea, planned to take part in the construction of a new nuclear power generation facilities.

Building six nuclear reactors is promoted by the South African government and intended to increase the country’s nuclear capacity, in order to decrease its dependence on coal-fired plants. For that purpose, the government asked Eskom to procure an additional 9,600 megawatts of capacity.

At present, the Republic of South Africa has the continent's only nuclear power station.
