22398MW coal power generation out of service in South Africa – blackouts persist

News Flash

  • Eskom reports that despite the return to service of five generating units in the last 36 hours, the need to replenish and stabilise the emergency reserves in preparation for the weekday electricity demand, as well as the marginally deteriorated available generation capacity, necessitates that Stage 2 loadshedding continue to be implemented until further notice.
  • A further outlook will be provided on Wednesday afternoon, or any changes will be communicated if required.

Unplanned outages are at 14 759MW of generating capacity, while the capacity out of service for planned maintenance is at 7 639MW.

Eskom Power Station General Managers and their teams will continue to work diligently to ensure that the 2 320MW of generating capacity is returned to service by Wednesday as planned.
