Cape Town – Eskom confirmed that on Monday evening there is a “subtle chance” of cargo discharge.
There was concern after power outages were made on Sunday. But a spokesman for Eskom Dikatso Mothae said that the system was significantly improved, and there was no immediate danger of a load shedding.
“We will keep our customers up to date if there are any changes in the system,” the energy company said.
A number of obsolete Eskom coal-fired power plants “did not function optimally,” and parts of the country suffered from a power outage from 12:15 to 22:00, according to Netwerk24, as the generators of the power system connected with money struggled with capacity limitations.
Cape Town was fortunate to avoid any wear and tear on the load due to overflow.
Last week, Eskom executive director Fakamani Khadeb said that 10 stations have less than 20 coal reserves.
Problems with coal supply at Eskom power plants were attributed to operational failures. Tags that put pressure on reserves. Currently, the company associated with Gupta, leads a business rescue.
Eskom published charts from 5 to 8 scenarios of load shedding. At stage 8, consumers can count on the lack of power up to 17 hours a day and up to six and a half hours in a row.
Khadeb said that the availability of generations "has deteriorated lower than we were striving to achieve." He said that cargo discharge cannot be excluded during the remainder of 2018.
