Eskom Warns Of Stage 2 Load-Shedding At Peak Hours This Week

After three days without load shedding, Eskom warned that Stage 2 load-shedding might be implemented at short notice from 16:00 to 24:00, the peak evening hours, over the course of the week.
This is due to power station breakdowns and delays in returning some generating units to service.
The breakdown of two generation units at Arnot, one each at Camden and Lethabo power stations during the past 24 hours and the delay in returning a generating unit to service each at Kendal, Komati and two units at Tutuka power stations have put a severe strain on the power generation system.
Over the weekend, Eskom returned to service two generating units at Kendal Power Station and a unit each at Hendrina, Kusile and Tutuka power stations.
Some 4 872MW in power output is out due to planned maintenance, while another 13 983MW of capacity is unavailable due to breakdowns.
