Monday, 13 September 2021: Following the fire incident at the Kendal Power Station during the weekend, Eskom wishes to inform the public that Units 2 and 3 of the power station, which were shut down following the damage to Unit 1’s generator transformer, will be returned to service early this week.
Unit 1 will be returned to service during November 2021.
While Eskom will be forced to increase diesel consumption, we do not anticipate that any loadshedding will be implemented as a result of the incident. We urge members of the public to continue using electricity sparingly to assist the country.
Eskom will keep the public informed should there be any significant change in the power system.
