Johannesburg - The Johannesburg high court interdicted Eskom on Friday from continuing with a controversial R4bn tender to replace power station Duvha’s damaged boiler.

Eskom awarded the contract to Chinese firm Dongfang in March, even though it quoted R1bn more than its rivals. But in April losing bidders General Electric, along with Murray & Roberts, approached the high court to interdict Eskom from implementing Dongfang’s contract until it has been reviewed and adjudicated again.

The court ruled that Dongfang cannot proceed and the tender has been referred back to Eskom to reconsider.
