Westinghouse to support AP1000 nuclear reactors in S. Africa

Westinghouse Electric Co. signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with South African engineering, procurement and construction company Sebata Group of Companies for the potential construction of Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear power plants in South Africa.

The MOU marks the start of Westinghouse’s collaboration with the Sebata Group to develop an engineering-led organization involved in many aspects of the nuclear power industry, including skills development and training, and safety, health, environment, risk and quality.

Westinghouse recently signed an agreement with South African Nuclear Energy corp. (Necsa) to investigate and cooperate in the development of local fabrication capabilities for fuel assembly components. The company has supported the Koeberg Nuclear Power Station since the 1990s.
