Koeberg nuclear power station became operational 35 years ago

The nuclear power station at Koeberg, the only commercial nuclear power station in Africa, became operational on 14 March 1984. On 21 August 1984, the French contractor turned Koeberg-1 over to South Africa's Electricity Supply Commission (Eskom) and the plant was issued its commercial operating license. Koeberg is situated at Duynefontein, 27km north of Cape Town on the Atlantic coast.

The power station provides electricity to the Western Cape and supplies 6,5% of South Africa's total electricity needs. It has operated safely for more than seventeen years and is expected to operate for another twenty to thirty years.

Below are images of the Koeberg nuclear power station available for licensing.
