The Russian nuclear company has however admitted it's still interested in the country's nuclear power plan.
CAPE TOWN - Russian nuclear company Rosatom has denied reports that it's officially made a bid for South Africa’s nuclear power plan, but admits it’s still interested.
At the end of last year Eskom issued a request for information for the building of a project aimed at providing 9.6 gigawatts of nuclear energy by 2030.
Eskom on Tuesday denied reports that the Russian nuclear company already submitted a bid for the planned nuclear project.
A senior Rosatom executive then echoed Eskom's statements.
The executive states that they are looking forward to the bidding phase of the project, which still has to be launched.
Rosatom and other interested bidders will have until the end of April to reply to Eskom's request for information.
