Cape Town - Eskom on Saturday defended its award of the contract for the replacement of six steam generators at Koeberg power station, saying Westinghouse’s complaints that the strategic considerations were introduced in the middle of the tender, to favour Areva, were unfounded.

"(Our) position that the strategic considerations were part and parcel of the tender evaluation criteria has never changed.

"This position is coupled with the contention that while Westinghouse’s price offering was cheaper, it was never, at any stage, an outright winner of the steam generator replacement tender," said Matshela Koko, Eskom’s Group Executive for Generation.
