Westinghouse Electric Company has been selected by Eskom to provide three reloads of fuel for the Koeberg Nuclear Power Plant beginning in late 2011 and ending in 2015. The contract is worth $30 million.
Under terms of the contract executed with Westinghouse Electric Sweden AB, Westinghouse will produce fuel at its fabrication facility in Sweden.
In commenting on the fuel contract, Rita Bowser, regional vice president, Westinghouse Electric South Africa, said: “We are pleased to be able continue to assist the Republic of South Africa in its ongoing and successful effort to generate the safe, clean and reliable electricity necessary to fuel continued economic growth. Furthermore, we believe this agreement further demonstrates our commitment to South Africa, and we look forward to additional mutually beneficial partnerships in the years to come.”
The contract with Eskom is the most recent in a series of accomplishments for Westinghouse Sweden. Earlier this year, the company had received orders to provide fuel for five Swedish reactors beginning in 2011.
“We believe the order reflects Eskom’s high confidence in the quality and reliability of Westinghouse fuel,” he said. “We appreciate the opportunity to work with Eskom on a daily, long-term basis.”
