Koeberg - Koeberg power station contributed R29bn to the gross domestic product of the Western Cape and R23bn to the rest of the South African economy between 2013 and 2016, according to Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown.

Brown was the keynote speaker on Thursday at the presentation in Koeberg of a KPMG study on the impact of Koeberg on the economy.

“The KPMG assessment,” Brown said, “is not intended to persuade anyone to alter their philosophical views on nuclear power; it is meant to inform. For me, what's important now is not proving whether nuclear is preferable to coal, or renewables to gas.”
