Licence sought to ship nuclear materials into PE

nuclearNELSON Mandela Bay may be welcoming ships carrying nuclear material into its ports before the end of the year. NTP Logistics, a company that specialises in the transportation of nuclear materials, has applied for a licence from the National Nuclear Regulator (NNR) to transport such materials to Port Elizabeth via ship, or to use the Bay’s ports as a stop- over point on longer routes.

An advertisement in The Herald on April 10 announced the application, and invited the public to ask any questions or raise concerns about the venture within 30 days.

NNR transportation specialist Paul Hinrichsen said this was standard procedure for any company applying for a licence to transport nuclear material. – Riaan Marais

    Port Elizabethans, do everything you can to protest. Research has shown how shocking and terrifying such a move can be.
