Leaders in execution of turnkey engineering in South Africa
Home-grown Lesedi Nuclear Services is a leading EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) company with extensive experience in the execution of turnkey engineering projects, in both nuclear and conventional environments. It has operational footprints throughout the South African power industry.
Having completed numerous projects, primarily at Eskom’s Koeberg Nuclear Power Plant, construction of the 14X150MW Open Cycle Gas Turbine Power Plant in the Western Cape, and executing EPC contracts for the balance of plant systems for Eskom’s Medupi and Kusile Coal Power Plants – still under construction – Lesedi is well-placed to play a leading role in offering competitive EPC proposals to the country’s power infrastructure industry.
Lesedi is now a Level Three B-BBEE (Empowering supplier) company and has registered *8EP, 9ME, 7SF certification levels with the Construction Industry Development Board. The company’s main shareholder is global nuclear company, AREVA, with the remaining shares split between Group Five, the J&J Group and local Lesedi management. Since 2001, Lesedi Nuclear Services has provided a wide range of services to Koeberg Nuclear Power Station. Our major involvement has been in the supply of technical personnel for plant upgrades (150 modifications), engineering, project management, procurement and maintenance.
Lesedi has a number of key partnerships, one being our partnership with Exosun. Exosun is a worldwide leading supplier of advanced, cost-effective solar tracking solutions for ground-mounted photovoltaic (PV) plants.
Since the partnership of Exosun and Lesedi took place in March 2017, Lesedi has been focusing on optimising its local supply chain with a target of cost reduction and an increase in local content in order to benefit its clients and prospects. In parallel to the progress made on local manufacturing, Lesedi is also focusing on optimising logistics with local transporters and installation with our certified installers. Due to some uncertainty in the REIPPP in South Africa, Lesedi is getting more involved in private projects, and also assessing a number of opportunities in SADC.
