South Africa’s National Nuclear Regulator (NNR) confirmed on Tuesday that it had received, on March 10, two Nuclear Installation Site Licence (NISL) applications from Eskom for Thyspunt, in the Eastern Cape, and Duynefontein, in the Western Cape. The NNR said that both NISL applications had been received in line with Sections 20(1) and 21(1) of the NNR Act and mentioned Eskom’s intention to “construct and operate multiple nuclear installations (power reactors) and associated auxillary nuclear installations of a plant type and technology not yet identified”.
