Nuclear cruiser denied entry to Cape Town

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

The National Nuclear Regulator (NNR) has denied the Russian nuclear cruiser Pyotr Veliky entry into Cape Town next week for not meeting certain requirements.

The regulatory body had received an application from the South African Navy on December 5 for a Nuclear Vessel Licence for the nuclear-powered vessel to visit Cape Town harbour from January 9 to 15.

However, there appeared to be some confusion as the advert appearing in local newspapers last week had the dates as January 12 to 17.
