'Japan quake to affect SA on nuclear'

Cape Town - Concerns about radioactivity from the site of an earthquake-stricken reactor in Japan could affect decisions on future nuclear plants in South Africa, the energy minister said on Tuesday.

"It has a bearing in the way in which we make decisions, in the way in which we make policies but also in the way we construct nuclear power plants," Dipuo Peters told an African power conference.

South Africa currently operates Africa's sole nuclear plant near Cape Town, but plans to make nuclear supply 14% of its energy mix by 2030 to help it move away from dirtier electricity based on coal.
