Koeberg's safety record up to November 2005

Koeberg ranks amongst the safest of the world's top-ranking pressurised water reactor (PWR's) of its vintage and up to November 2005 was considered the most reliable Eskom power station (click here for details of the troubles from November 2005). In March 2001, Koeberg was awarded NOSCAR status for the 5th time by the National Occupational Safety Association (NOSA). The station is also vital for grid stability in the Cape. The two reactor units at Koeberg supply 1 800mW, or half of the Western Cape's peak demand.
