Eskom announces extended Stage 2 load-shedding

Published on

Eskom has announced the return to Stage 2 load-shedding after a few days of no power cuts, which comes days after the 109th anniversary celebration of the ruling party last week.

Eskom released a statement on Thursday, 14 January 2021, to confirm that the country is set to return to Stage 2 load-shedding. The country has had five days of no load-shedding, with the power utility having announced a suspension of load-shedding last week before the 109th anniversary celebration of the African National Congress (ANC).

According to the statement, “Two generation units at the Kusile Power Station tripped due to the failure of the main coal feed conveyor belts supplying coal to the units. In addition, a unit each at the Kriel and Duvha tripped due to unforeseen breakdowns. We presently have four generation units whose return to service from planned maintenance has been delayed.”

Currently, load-shedding is set to begin on Thursday, 14 January 2021, and concluded on Sunday, 17 January 2021.
