Eskom CEO André de Ruyter admitted to Parliament on Tuesday that a steam generator replacement programme at Koeberg was "poorly managed", which led to disciplinary action being taken against employees.

Three of Eskom's Koeberg project managers were suspended over problems with the replacement programme. An alleged lack financial discipline by the managers resulted in a situation where no provision was made for Eskom to urgently pay R650 million, as per a May Constitutional Court ruling, to Framatome - a French company appointed to manufacture and install six new steam generators at the nuclear power station. 

Eskom officials and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) on Tuesday made presentations on issues arising at Koeberg before Parliament's portfolio committees of mineral resources and energy and public enterprises.
