Eskom says it’s pleased the High Court of South Africa, Gauteng Local Division, Johannesburg this morning, 5 September 2014, confirmed as an Order of Court that a Westinghouse Application to interdict Eskom from concluding its contract with the winning bidder, has now been withdrawn by Westinghouse.
There is no Court Order providing Westinghouse the right to an urgent review. We have no interdict and the application for review is gone,” says Matshela Koko, Eskom’s Acting Group Executive for Technology and Commercial.
The Court Order is limited to granting Westinghouse access to documentation leading up to and forming the basis of Eskom’s decision in the procurement of the Steam Generators. Eskom will comply with this.
“Nothing stops us from forging ahead,” adds Koko. “This means that the interdict application is now firmly behind us and we can indeed focus on the implementation of the Steam Generator Replacement Project.”
