We drive the highest standards of safety and security in the global transport of nuclear and radioactive materials.
We collaborate with industry experts to produce up to date resources that are free to download.
Each day thousands of shipments of radioactive materials are transported around the world.
Koeberg Nuclear Power Station is owned and operated by Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd. The station is a two unit PWR and located 30km north of Cape Town, South Africa.
The station has, as part of its duties, the responsibility to transport and receive radioactive material, including radioactive waste, as well as new unirradiated nuclear fuel. In future, the station will also be transporting large items to the waste repository, such as decommissioned steam generators, reactor heads and irradiated nuclear fuel.
Eskom transforms inputs from the natural environment – coal, nuclear, fuel, diesel, water, and wind – into more than 90% of the energy supplied to a wide range of customers in South Africa and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region. To balance electricity supply and demand in real time, the System Operator (soon to be the Independent Transmission and System Market Operator, ITSMO, as the Transmission business continues to legally separate) must maintain the frequency of the power system at 50Hz.
