 Lesedi Nuclear Services evolved from Intens Engineering, found soon after the construction and commissioning of South Africa’s Koeberg Nuclear Power Station by AREVA (global leader in design and construction of nuclear power plants) in the mid 1980’s. Lesedi provides engineering, recurrent maintenance services and technical resources for the South African Nuclear Power Industry. Since 2006, Lesedi has diversified to be a major Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) organisation, having completed numerous successful projects in both nuclear and non-nuclear environments, primarily at Eskom’s Koeberg Nuclear Power Plant in the Western Cape, and currently at the Medupi Coal Power Station in Limpopo.

Lesedi Nuclear Services provides integrated engineering solutions for all phases of a project, from initial design data and feasibility studies, through conceptual and detailed design, to planning, construction, start-up and commissioning, handover and operational support. Our product and services philosophy is developed and overseen by Lesedi’s project director, Horst Lakemeier, who is adamant that Lesedi remains ahead of nuclear market requirements for service, safety and delivery.

Lesedi has a track record in engineering and energy infrastructure projects that extend over 15 years. It is a Level Four B-BBEE contributor. Their procurement and training strategies are aligned to meet stringent contractual requirements in adherence with both the National Development Plan and Supplier Development and Localisation (SD&L) objectives. Three percent of the company’s expenditure, a proportion of total payroll, is allocated for staff skills development, because people remain Lesedi’s key asset.
