南アランド関連、エスコム社計画停電まだ続きそう

Eskom cannot rule out more rolling blackouts in coming months


There is "no magic wand" to rid South Africa of the current bout of load-shedding as Eskom faces a myriad of historical, financial and technical problems which have contributed to the current power outages, Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan said in a press briefing on Tuesday. Gordhan, Eskom board chairperson Jabu Mabuza and senior Eskom management provided an update regarding the rolling blackouts that have been scaled up to level four -- where the national grid needs to shed 4 000 megawatts of electricity.

The power utility has warned that it cannot rule out the continued possibility of load shedding for the coming six to twelve months. Eskom is facing a host of problems. The performance of its generation plant remains unpredictable and there has been an increase in unplanned outages -- or breakdowns at its power stations -- by 13 000 megawatts against a projected 8 000MW. Along with planned maintenance around 17 000MW of capacity is unavailable.
