South African industry associations have welcomed the Request for Information (RFI) for the 2,500MW nuclear new build programme recently published by the Department of Mineral Resource and Energy (DMRE). The Southern African Radiation Protection Association (SARPA) is among the organisations that have confirmed their support for the development, which is in line with the Decision 8 of the approved Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) 2019. In order to achieve a successful process of the RFI, SARPA urges participants in the RFI exercise to supply the DMRE with accurate and truthful information. This information is important to decision making in as far as the next step to consider for the nuclear build.
