We’re in for a dark few days as Eskom has announced Stage 4 load shedding will continue until further notice as a result of shortages of generational capacity.
In a statement, the embattled power utility explains that “due to a shortage of generational capacity resulting from unplanned breakdowns, Eskom will continue Stage 4 load shedding until further notice. We expect that loadshedding, at various stages, may continue into the weekend.”
“The pump vault on Koeberg Unit 1 is being fixed, and it is envisaged that the unit will be back in service at the weekend. In the meantime, we continue utilising emergency generational reserves, including diesel, to supplement supply,” it said.
