According to media , power utility Eskom failed to disclose that South Africa was plunged into Stage 8 load shedding last week. The embattled power utility then announced that Stage 6 would be continued “indefinitely” after Unit 2 at Koeberg Power Station outside Cape Town, tripped.

The breakdown at Koeberg, one of Eskom’s most reliable plants, means that both Units 1 and 2 are out of service, a loss of over 1,900 MW of power. Energy analyst Chris Yelland said: “Unit 1 at Koeberg is down for life extension and refuelling. There is now no power from Koeberg for the time being.”

South Africa has had to endure scheduled power cuts since 2007 due to mismanagement at the national power utility.
