Koeberg Nuclear Power Station on high alert after oil leak

The Koeberg Nuclear Power Station remains on high alert for a possible threat on its water basin following an oil spill at Bloubergstrand, Cape Town after the Seli One's hull disintegrated over the weekend. This lead to a spill of crude oil into the ocean.

Marine and Disaster Management authorities now fear that more oil will leak from the ship after the vessel's stern broke off. Authorities are busy with mop-up operations and will monitor the area for further spilling.
