Areva to replace steam generators at S. Africa nuclear power plant

Areva will replace six steam generators at the 1,800-MW Koeberg nuclear power plant in South Africa.

The generators would be installed in 2018, according to Reuters. The project is part of a plan to install up to 9,600 MW of new nuclear in the country by 2030 to keep up with growing demand. The Koeberg plant generates 5 percent of South Africa’s power, with the rest mostly generated from coal.
