Johannesburg - In further developments in the ongoing dispute of a R5bn contract awarded by Eskom to Areva, Westinghouse has now opposed their applications to the Constitutional Court for leave to appeal a Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) judgement on 9 December 2015.

The SCA judgement had set aside the contract, declared it “unlawful”, and ordered that it be remitted back to Eskom for reconsideration.

The contract award, said to be the biggest that has ever been disputed in a court of law in South Africa, includes the replacement of six steam generators at Eskom’s Koeberg nuclear power station in the Western Cape. Eskom and Areva say that the steam generators are approaching their end-of-life, and that it is critical that they be replaced during the normal reactor refueling and maintenance outages in 2018 (known as the X23 outages).
