Eskom implements stage 2 load shedding

Eskom 'breaks' load shedding promise

Eskom said on Thursday it was not able to generate its required capacity due to industrial action that affected them this week.

"Some employees continue to work around the clock to restore stability to operations and supply".

Eskom has warned that the probability of rotational load shedding will increase during the evening peak period from 5pm - 9pm tonight, due to the normal expected increase in demand.

It said a cold snap was likely to add pressure to a system that was already under strain following incidents of sabotage and intimidation of staff during wage negotiations.

These processes have now to be cleared out and restarted which would take additional time.

The prognosis will include analysing coal management and transportation, as there is now an inability for the power utility to transport coal from coal stock yards to coal stock bunkers without operating staff.
