Eskom and the Eastern Cape Provincial Government will be on boarding the Nuclear Power Plants Build (Thyspunt) and Science Enhancement Initiatives.

The purpose of the event is to showcase the role Eskom plans to play in the Nuclear plant and to also clarify some of the misconceptions around the Nuclear station.

Speaking On Morning Live Eskom's GE Abram Masango says the initiative is important  particularly for the Eastern Cape.

“It will improve the Math and Science for the pupils. We have seen a big improvement. It is critical for the future projects. We want to build here in the future. If we have a lot of pupils doing Maths and Science they can be Nuclear Scientists, they can be Electrical engineers, Mechanical Engineers or Civil Engineers which is a key in terms of the engineering discipline to execute most of the projects we want to execute.”
