China General Nuclear (CGN) subsidiary Swakop Uranium revealed that “milling and processing operations” at its enormous Husab uranium mine in Namibia “continued to be hampered by the inconsistent supply of water,” underlying its call for a second water desalination plant to compete with Orano Mining's Erango plant. If sustained, Husab's production woes could mean that China has to find new sources of uranium to meet its growing nuclear fleet requirements.
