Oh, sorry. They are not profitable when you require power to remain centralised within a single corporation.

Shit for brains ANC yobo's ..only an idiot, or bunch of idiots would build a nuclear plant in such a sensitive area. Follow the money I say, someone from the bidders has demanded and got that location to keep costs down... someone is going to have a big pay day out of this...wait and see!

There are some seriously ugly parts of our coast that have long since been trashed. Why not site the plant at one of these instead of trashing a brand new piece of scenic coastline?

The ANC government is bent on maximising cash while they rape our coastline and rob it of its natural beauty - look at what it intends to do with dune mining of non strategic metals on the Wild Coast.

Why are they building it on the coast when they can put it at places such as Beaufort West, where there is nothing but stones, and the water can be cooled and utilised for growing something! That area, Beaufort West needs employment AND water!!!!

When on earth will someone provide a little adult supervision for Eskom?
