Nuclear power "only option for SA"

Global energy experts and environmental scientists recently said that in order to mitigate against climate change and make environmental preservation a priority globally, there must be a move to eliminate the burning of fossil fuels. The full range of electricity-generation sources − including nuclear power − must be deployed to replace coal and realistically meet the base-load power needs of an increasingly energy hungry world.

They said that nuclear power for a country like South Africa will and must play a critical role in the country’s economic and social development. The building and development of nuclear power plants in South Africa will not only secure South Africa’s energy future but generate thousands of jobs, develop a high specialised technical skill set and stimulate further interest in the sciences, generating a legacy of employment, skills development and science focused education.

Shane Pereira, Business Development Manager at Lesedi Nuclear Services; and Viktor Polikarpov, Regional Vice-President for Rosataom – Sub-Saharan Africa, elaborated for Cape Business News.
