In the past 24 hours, a generating unit each at Camden, Lethabo and Tutuka power stations were returned to service. Breakdowns at a unit each at Duvha, Lethabo, and Majuba power stations caused units to be taken offline for repairs.
The delay in returning a unit each to service at Kendal and Duvha power stations are contributing to the current capacity constraints.
Breakdowns currently amount to 17 149MW of generating capacity while 4 950MW of generating capacity is out of service for planned maintenance.
