Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Pretoria - Unit 2 of Koeberg Power Station has set a new record, having reached 485 days of continuous operation since its last outage.

“The new record was set yesterday morning at 05:02am and further proves how reliable Africa’s only nuclear power station is. The record surpasses the previous record for Unit 2 of 484 days of continuous operation, which was achieved in March 2014,” said Eskom.

In August 2016, Unit 1 achieved 455 days of continuous operation, surpassing its previous record of 454 days, which was achieved in 2001.

Interim Group Chief Executive Matshela Koko said the power utility takes pride in the continuous operation of the Koeberg units, which are regularly maintained. – SAnews.gov.za
