Better prepare dinner early as Eskom warns of possible blackouts

Eskom has warned that due to a shortage of generation capacity, Stage 2 loadshedding might be implemented at short notice between 16:00 and midnight over the next three days.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the national power utility said the reduced capacity is due to delays in returning some generation units to service.

“The delay in returning a generation unit to service each at Arnot, Kusile and Koeberg power stations, as well as the failure of a generation unit each at Medupi, Hendrina, Camden and two units at Majuba Power Station, have exacerbated the capacity constraints,” read part of the statement.

It said some generation units at other power stations are expected to return to service over the next few days.

“However, should there be any further loss of generation capacity over the next three days, or should some units fail to return to service as anticipated, loadshedding may be required to be implemented at short notice.

“We currently have 2 986 megawatts on planned maintenance, while another 15 513 megawatts of capacity is unavailable due to breakdowns,” the company explained.

According to Eskom, loadshedding is implemented only as a last resort to protect the national grid. – Staff Reporter
