Westinghouse Electric Company has filed an application to the High Court of South Africa in Johannesburg, charging Eskom with contempt of court because of the utility’s failure to supply documentation the court said should be delivered to Westinghouse within five calendar days of 5 September 2014.

Westinghouse said the application follows several unsuccessful attempts by its legal representatives to obtain important files related to Eskom’s decision to award the tender for the replacement of six steam generators at the Koeberg nuclear power station to Areva.
