SA to build new nuclear power plants

 

Johannesburg - Power utility Eskom on Monday said it has returned Unit 2 of its Koeberg power station to service after more than a month of repairs.

The unit was shut down late in October for repairs to the generator on the non-nuclear part of the station.

"The execution of the repairs to the generator required the unit to be completely shut down. The nuclear reactor was kept in a safe shutdown condition while the repairs were being undertaken," Eskom said in a statement.

Unit 1 at Koeberg continued to operate at full power while Unit 2 was undergoing repairs, which meant there was no interruption of electricity supply as a result.

However, Eskom warned that power supply remains tight during the summer months as it performs maintenance on the coal-fired stations.

"Consequently the balance between demand and supply of electricity is under constraint during these months," Eskom said, requesting all energy users to be prudent and not to waste electricity.
