ESKOM RESTORES SUPPLY TO WELKOM BULK SUBSTATION
WEDNESDAY, 28 OCTOBER 2020, 18H50: Eskom restored bulk electricity supply to Welkom Bulk substation at 18h00 this evening after the collapse of two 132 kV towers on the Everest-Welkom Bulk feeder resulted in a loss of supply to large parts of Welkom in the Free State.
 
While Eskom provides supply to the substation, Matjhabeng Local Municipality is responsible for distributing electricity to its residents.  Further enquiries may be directed to Matjhabeng Local Municipality.
 
In addition, excellent progress is being made with the construction of the 132 kV tower on the Everest-Witpan feeder after a tower collapsed yesterday afternoon due to stay cable theft.  Work should be completed before midnight.
