Representatives of Russia’s reactor design and development company Gidropress met officials from South Africa’s Department of Energy to present reactor technology that could be used for new build in the country, including the Generation III+ VVER-TOI light water reactor design.
Last month South Africa said it would sign strategic cooperation agreements with nuclear vendors and countries to start the rollout of a nuclear new build programme.
It said details of the agreements will only be shared once they have all been signed.
