Eskom has geared things up. The power supply company said they will implement load-shedding Stage 4 from 14:00 on 10 March 2020.
The embattled power utility company said this is because of additional breakdowns.
Loadshedding will move to Stage 4 from 14:00 this afternoon after Koeberg Unit 1 tripped. The unit has been disconnected from the grid due to a fault on the tubine side, however the nuclear reactor remains safe.
Eskom said the teams are investigating the root causes of the fault, and will advise of the remedy as soon it is established.
“The load of approximately 930MW unit puts further strain on the generation fleet, necessitating an increase in the stage of loadshedding”
