Sunday, 25 September 2022: Stage 3 loadshedding continues to be implemented at 00:00 – 16:00 daily until Thursday. Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented daily during the evening peaks between 16:00 and 00:00. A further update will be published on Wednesday afternoon, or as soon as there are any significant changes.

Eskom is still experiencing constraints from its diesel suppliers that is affecting the availability of bulk diesel to the Ankerlig and Gourikwa Open Cycle Gas Turbines, which have a combined capacity of 2 000MW. While we expect diesel deliveries from Tuesday onwards, should this uncertainty of supply persist, higher stages of loadshedding may be required.

While some generation units are anticipated to return to service, it is necessary to continue the loadshedding to conserve emergency generation reserves.

Since Friday a generation unit each at Camden and Kriel power stations were taken offline for repairs.

Another generating unit each at Kriel and Kusile power stations were returned to service.  

Eskom apologises for the continued and unfortunate loadshedding, which is implemented only as a last resort in view of the shortage of generation capacity and the need to attend to breakdowns.

We currently have 5 897MW on planned maintenance, while another 16 739MW of capacity is unavailable due to breakdowns.
