Energy expert dismisses Zuma’s nuclear deal comment

https://www.enca.com/news/energy-expert-rubbishes-zumas-nuclear-deal-comment 23 March 2019 – JOHANNESBURG – Former President Jacob Zuma has defended a proposed nuclear energy deal, saying it would’ve solved Eskom’s crisis.

Zuma said the country would have spent trillions over a short period, but it would have been able to make returns.

But energy expert Tobias Bischof-Niemz disagrees with Zuma, saying the process could have taken about ten years, leaving the country in crisis till 2023.

The nuclear project that was in discussion for years stems from the integrated nuclear plan.

“As for that plan, the first reactor would have come online in 2023,” said Bischof-Niemz.

“Even if we had implemented the IRP 2010, the first reactor would come online in four years from now.”
