Eskom’s generation system is severely constrained as two generation units trip

Eskom has urged the public to use electricity sparingly as the powergeneration system is severely constrained after two generation units tripped earlier Tuesday evening.

“We lost a unit each at Medupi and at Tutuka power stations, totaling about 1 300MW. This constrained supply situation may persist through the weekend,” said Eskom’s spokesperson Sikonathi Mantsantsa.

Eskom however has assured that teams are hard at work trying to return these units to service.

“The public’s co-operation in managing demand will help us supply the country’s demand through the peak periods” he added.
