Load shedding to be reduced by one stage on Thursday morning

Eskom announced that Stage 4 loadshedding will continue until 5a.m on Thursday. The ailing parastatal said that Stage 3 loadshedding will then be reduced implemented until 5a.m on Saturday.

In a statement, the power utility said the continued loadshedding is necessary due to the shortage of generation capacity as a result of persistent high levels of breakdowns, and to further replenish the emergency generation reserves.

‘’A generation unit each at Arnot, Kriel, Lethabo, Matla as well as two units at Camden Power Station have returned to service since last night. A generating unit each at Hendrina, Kendal and Majuba power stations were taken offline for repairs.’’

‘’Furthermore, the delay in returning a generating unit each to service at Kendal, Komati and Tutuka power stations have added to the capacity constraints,’’ it added.

The parastatal apologized for the implementation of rolling power cuts.

‘’Eskom apologises for the continued and unfortunate loadshedding, which is implemented only as a last resort in view of the shortage of generation capacity and the need to attend to breakdowns.’’
