UPDATE ON RESTORATION OF SUPPLY TO PARYS
FRIDAY, 29 MAY 2020: As announced in a media statement issued on Wednesday, 27 May 2020, a breaker fault at Parys Rural Substation resulted in a fire that caused substantial damage to the control room.  The incident happened at 20:32 on Tuesday, 26 May 2020 and led to a loss of electricity supply to Parys. 
 
The required material was delivered to site late yesterday afternoon and the teams are working tirelessly to ensure speedy restoration.
 
As with any complex recovery work of this nature unforeseen technical challenges can arise.
 
Eskom will ensure regular media updates to keep all those affected informed.
 
Eskom apologises for the inconvenience and urges customers to remain patient and to treat all electrical installations as live and dangerous at all times.
