“We would like to inform the public that this constrained supply situation will persist throughout the week. The is possibility that more load-shedding is likely to be implemented should the generation capacity deteriorate further.”

“Unit 5 of Medupi Power Station returned to service last night. Three generating units at the Camden Power Station tripped during the night, contributing to the current shortage of capacity. Eskom teams are working hard to return as many of these units to service as possible,” read the statement.

The power utility currently has 4 804MW on planned maintenance. However, 14 449MW of capacity is unavailable because of unplanned breakdowns. There is management of the emergency generation reserves to limit the stage of load-shedding. The overnight load-shedding will replenish the dam level at the pump storage power stations to prepare for the rest of the week.
