Cape Town – Rosatom said it has not yet submitted its bid for South Africa’s 9.6 GW nuclear procurement project.

This followed a report by news agency Reuters on Tuesday, which stated: "Russian state nuclear agency Rosatom has submitted a bid for a nuclear power project in South Africa, TASS news agency cited the company's general director Alexei Likhachev as saying on Tuesday."

While Fin24 could not find the original story on the TASS website, Rosatom told Fin24 on Tuesday night that Likhachev was only referring to Rosatom’s decision to respond, which will come in due course.
