Russia to build A-plants in S Africa

Russia’s Atomstroyexport contractors are to build 8 nuclear electricity units in South Africa. Each will be built around a pressurized water reactor and have a generating capacity of 1.2 gigawatts.

Formal agreements about this are to be signed by the Russian and the South African nuclear energy chiefs, Sergey Kiriyenko and Benedict Martins, at a meeting on the fringes of the next ATOMEX Africa forum to be held in Johannesburg next Monday.
