The public has been advised that stage 4 load-shedding will continue until Friday evening and more loadshedding at reduced stages is expected to continue through the weekend.
“As the ageing fleet is currently constrained, unpredictable and vulnerable we advice South Africa that the stage of load-shedding may change at short notice should there be any unexpected change in the generation system performance,” Eskom said in a statement.
Eskom hopes to bring Koeberg Unit 1 back to service by Sunday.
