Cold conditions in the Western Cape may lead to more power cuts

Bitterly cold conditions that are expected to prevail in the Western Cape over the next two days might lead to more power cuts. Power supply in the Western Cape recently suffered another blow as Koeberg's repaired Unit 1, has battled with a faulty valve since Thursday. Fani Zulu, national spokesperson for Eskom, said repair work on the valve continued and that everything was back to normal. Zulu added that the only remaining issue is the valve, which has forced Eskom to temporarily scale down power supply to 80%. Eskom are not considering switching off the unit at this stage.
