GE signs contract for Medupi

19 May 2010 - General Electric South Africa signed a $63 million contract to help build a coal-fired plant. GE will install and maintain fuses and other equipment for the six-unit, 4800 MW Medupi coal plant that state-owned Eskom is building in northern South Africa.

The World Bank approved a $3.75 billion loan to help the country build Medupi last month.

Medupi is the first coal-fired power plant of its kind to be built in South Africa in 20 years.
