Stage 6 load shedding will be implemented on Wednesday until further notice.

Stage 6 load shedding will be implemented on Wednesday continuously from 16h00 due to severe capacity constraints. Eleven generators amounting to 5 084MW of capacity have suffered breakdowns since Tuesday morning, further reducing available capacity and necessitating the increase in the load shedding stages.  

These were a unit each at the Camden, Duvha, Grootvlei, Hendrina, Kendal, and two units each at Kriel, Majuba and Matla power stations.

Planned maintenance is currently 5 8739MW while breakdowns amount to 18 041MW of capacity.

“Eskom will continue to manage the limited emergency generation reserves to supplement generation capacity. They will publish a further update as soon as there are any significant changes and have requested the public to reduce their usage of electricity,” said a spokesperson Sikonnathi Manthanthansa
