Cape Town to get additional nuclear power station

Eskom intends building an additional conventional nuclear power station at Koeberg at a cost exceeding some 16-billion rands. The proposed power station will be in addition to the pebble bed modular reactor already planned for the site. The Cape Times reports Public Enterprises Minister Alec Erwin as making the announcement in London at a nuclear industry conference. Erwin has been quoted as saying Eskom is fast tracking a feasibility study on the proposed nuclear power station. The Cape Times says sources close to the industry have questioned why Erwin chose to announce South Africa's domestic policy at an international conference. They say his attendance at a conference of this nature probably indicated that South Africa wanted to do some shopping.
