Low probability of load-shedding over weekend

While the country’s power system remains “tight and vulnerable”, there is only a low probability of load-shedding over the weekend, Eskom says.

Eskom said on Saturday its multidisciplinary teams continued to work tirelessly on the electricity parastal’s 9-point recovery plan to improve generation and operational performance while also stabilising the system.

“We have managed to conclude new coal contracts that will enable us to achieve an upwards turning on declining coal stock levels and bring about a marked improvement from December onwards, albeit slowly. Our short-term strategy to augment coal stocks at power stations that were below the minimum days is two-pronged, namely, coal procurement and diverting coal from well-stocked power stations,”  Eskom group chief executive Phakamani Hadebe said.
