The Eskom (South African electric utility ) board has approved the investigation of up to 20 000 MW of nuclear capacity over the next 20 years, as part of its plans to roll out 40 000 MW of capacity over the same period. The initial phase of the investigation will concentrate on one nuclear power station of about 40 000 MW, with provision being made for future expansion.

The proposed nuclear power station will be of the pressurised water reactor (PWR) type. Cooling water for the nuclear power station will be used directly from the sea. Although detailed design still needs to be completed, it is estimated that the entire development will require some 31 ha, including all auxiliary infrastructure.


The proposed nuclear power station will include a nuclear reactor, a turbine complex, spent fuel and nuclear storage facilities, waste handling facilities, an intake and outfall basin, and infrastructure for various auxiliary services.

Eskom is considering five possible sites for the nuclear plant, namely Brazil, near Kleinzee, and Schulpfontein near Hondeklipbaai on the Northern Cape west coast; Duynefontein (Koeberg) and Batamsklip, near Pearly Beach, east of Gansbaai, on the Western Cape coast; and Thyspunt, near Oyster Bay, west of Cape St Francis, on the Eastern Cape coast.

Value The project’s capital cost is between  € 70 millions and € 80 millions.
If the proposed project is authorised, it is estimated that the construction of the nuclear power station could start in 2010, with the commissioning of the first unit in 2016.

Key contractors and suppliers Arcus Gibb (environmental-impact assessment (EIA) and environmental-management plan for the proposed nuclear power plant). Latest development Eskom has announced its decision not to proceed with the proposed investment in the Nuclear 1 project, owing to the magnitude of the investment. The Eskom board has, as a result, terminated the commercial procurement process to select the preferred bidder for the construction of the Nuclear 1 project.

The two bidders, the EPR consortium led by Areva of France and the N-Powerment consortium led by Westinghouse of the US, have been informed of this decision of the Eskom board.

However, the South African government has stressed that the country remains committed to its nuclear power programme despite the dicision.

The evaluation report is expected nowadays to be prepared by the Turkish Electricity Transmission Corporation (TEIAS) and forwarded to the World Bank for the tender of the international Day-Ahead Market Trading System and Reconciliation System Procurement and Implementation Project, which is covered by the National Transmission System Project II and is the highest amount of investment item of the loan package of USD 66 million procured from the World Bank.
TEIAS, which has targeted to sign the tender contract before 2008 ends according to the work schedule prepared for the tender whose bids were received on July 16, 2008, will nowadays prepare the evaluation report. The report to be prepared for the project, whose evaluation works have been intensified as of the second half of December, will firstly submitted to the World Bank for approval. TEIAS will also resort to the approval of the Executive Board for finalization of the report and conclusion of the tender.
Areva+Havelsan had submitted the lowest bid of € 2.4 million for the tender on the basis of bid opening session prices read out by the Commission, and that the second lowest bidder was Spanish Atos Orgin SA with its bid of € 2.9 million. In the same news story of us, we reported that Siemens and ABB among the leading companies of the sector had participated in the tender, and that Indra System SA had also submitted bids for the tender.
Although the Tender Commission targets to finalize the tender in October, the activities lagged behind the work schedule prepared for the project since the evaluation works took longer than expected, and a delay was experienced in the contract envisaged to be signed in 2008. Areva+Havelsan, which submitted the lowest bid according to the prices read out by the Commission, has still a chance
Sources close to the subject reported that Areva+Havelsan, which had submitted the lowest bid of € 2,378,400 on the basis of bid opening session prices read out by the Commission, had still a chance. Stating that Areva worked on MMS also in other countries, the same sources pointed out that the tender result would be clarified through the Commission Report to be prepared.
