Eskom announces stage 2 of loadshedding

The power utility has announced stage 2 of load shedding. ” Regretfully, Stage 2 load shedding will be implemented starting at 11:00. A unit at Lethabo and Majuba was delayed in returning to service. A unit at Tutuka tripped. Three Kendal units were taken off and it is anticipated that the fourth and remaining unit will also be shut down. The conveyor belts supplying these units are currently not running due to a power fault. No coal is reaching the station at this point…
“We, unfortunately, do expect the load shedding stage to escalate into the weekend but this can only be confirmed once we have a better understanding of these problems and when it is likely to be resolved,” said Eskom Spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha.
