Expert Appointments Yield Positive Results

The minister attributed these improvements to strategically appointing experienced individuals at key power stations, including Bruce Moyo at Tutuka Power Station and strengthening the Kusile team.

Their efforts resulted in successfully bringing units back online ahead of schedule, thanks to rigorous engineering practices.

Engineered Expertise at Work

Ramokgopa emphasized that these achievements were not coincidental but the outcome of engineering expertise in action.

A Step Toward Load Shedding Escape

The minister expressed optimism that this progress could pave the way for South Africa to escape the cycle of load shedding, noting that achieving 365 days without load shedding begins with one day of success.

Monday, 10 July 2023: Stage 4 loadshedding is being implemented until 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday due to increased demand. On Wednesday, Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented from 14:00 until 05:00, followed by Stage 2 loadshedding from 05:00 to 14:00.

There will be a daily implementation of this pattern until further notice. A new update will be published if any significant changes are made.

As of now, 14 252MW of generating capacity has been damaged by breakdowns, while 4 118MW of generating capacity has been out of service for planned maintenance.

As of today, Duvha, Hendrina, Kendal, Kriel, Matimba and Medupi power stations have each reactivated a generating unit.

The Arnot and Tutuka power stations each had a generation unit out of service due to a breakdown during the same period.

Tutuka Power Station’s current capacity constraints are due to the delay in resuming two generating units. In order to restore service to the generating units, Eskom teams are working around the clock.

Members of the public are being encouraged to use electricity sparingly and efficiently, and we want to thank the people who do heed the call. During the period between 17:00 and 21:00, please turn off your geysers and pool pumps as this reduces demand, alleviates pressure on the power system, and contributes to fewer stages of load-shedding.
