Eskom announces weekend load-shedding schedule after 8 units break down


Eskom announces weekend load-shedding schedule after 8 units break down

Eskom will implement stage 2 load-shedding between 16:00 and midnight on Saturday and Sunday, the utility announced in a statement on Friday afternoon.

Eskom said its generating capacity constraints were exacerbated by the delay in returning units to service and unplanned breakdowns of more units.

The return to service of generating units at Koeberg, Kusile and Tutuka power stations and the unplanned breakdowns of a generation unit each at Camden and Medupi, two at Hendrina and four units at Arnot power stations had made it necessary to continue with evening peak load-shedding.

The utility said some of the units were anticipated to return to service “over the next few days”.

At the time of its announcement, Eskom had 15,624MW of capacity unavailable due to breakdowns and 3,571MW on planned maintenance.

Eskom said load-shedding over the weekend would also assist in recovering its emergency generation reserves, which had been utilised extensively to meet demand over the past few days.
