Additional power generating units expected to return to service - Eskom


Eskom says additional power generating units are expected to return to service on Sunday and repairs are progressing well on the conveyor belt at Medupi power station.

The power utility says in a statement, in addition, it has had an opportunity to replenish diesel reserves for the open cycle gas turbines and to increase water levels at its pumped storage schemes in preparation for the week ahead.

It says these reserves enable it to avoid and/or minimise the extent of load shedding.

Eskom said it would be in a better position to provide a prognosis for Monday and the coming week, after reviewing the performance of the electricity system on Sunday evening.

It says the power system is constrained, and while it is making every effort to avoid load shedding, it could be implemented at short notice should there be a significant shift in plant performance and increased unplanned technical breakdowns.
