Eskom has given notice that it intends applying for leave to appeal a Gauteng High Court judgment setting aside a decision by the utility to exclude Babcock Ntuthuko Engineering from boiler maintenance contracts at 15 coal power stations, as well as an order that Eskom should conclude a fresh tender process within six months. The contracts, which were awarded in October 2021 to Actom and Steinmuller Africa, are said to be valued at R16.3-billion.
