Stage 2 Load shedding implemented by Eskom

Due to the loss of ten generating units at seven power stations, Eskom implemented Stage 2 load shedding from 17:00 yesterday evening until 22:00 on Tuesday night.

Failure of three generation units at Tutuka was due to loss of air compressors, a unit at Majuba was forced shutdown while another unit tripped.

A generation unit at Kriel was taken down for a boiler tube leak.

A unit was forced down due to a steam leak at a unit at Matla power station, while trips at a unit each at Medupi, Kusile and the Duvha power stations are being investigated.

This represents a total loss of 6 044MW over this 24 hour period, bringing the total unplanned capacity lost to 16 118MW.

Planned maintenance is 4 171MW.
