Eskom says Stage 3 loadshedding will continue to be implemented until Thursday morning as electricity generation capacity remains constrained.



The ailing utility says this is necessary due to persistently high breakdowns at power plants.

In a statement, Eskom spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha says a generating unit each at seven power stations, including the Duvha, Kendal and Komati power stations, was taken offline for repairs.

“Following the shutdown of the Camden Power station due to water contamination last week, the first of seven generating units returned to service on Saturday evening. The remaining units are anticipated to return to service over the next eight days, while one will remain on planned maintenance,” the statement reads.

Mantshantsha says Eskom will give a further update on loadshedding on Wednesday afternoon.
