Plan drawn up to deal with power cuts in Western Cape

A top management team has been appointed to deal with the expected power cuts just before and during winter in the Western Cape. The team has been set up by the provincial government while Eskom works non-stop to sort out problems at the Koeberg nuclear power station. The Argus reports that Environment, Planning and Economic Development MEC Tasneem Essop will head the team. Emergency load shedding is a virtual certainty as Eskom repairs a broken-down generator at Koeberg and also takes its other generator off line to do maintenance work. Essop says an integrated plan aimed at reducing load shedding will be launched next week.
