Four Eskom companies to be prosecuted for alleged tender collusion

The Competition Commission has referred four companies for prosecution following allegations of tender collusion involving an Eskom tender worth R4.5 billion.

EWN reporter Gia Nicolaides revealed the company's names as SGB Cape, Tedoc Industries, Mtsweni Corrosion Control and Superfecta Trading 159 CC.

She says that the commission found evidence of collusion on the part of three joint ventures, which SGB Cape formed with each of the companies and used to tender collusively.

They are also accused of manipulating prices quoted by the company itself as well as the respective joint ventures.

They were doing work in terms of the supply, the installation and dismantling of scaffolding of the thermal insulation for all of Eskom's 15 coal-fired power stations across the country.
