Tuesday, 28 February 2023: Stage 3 loadshedding will continue to be implemented until 16:00
today. Thereafter, Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented from 16:00 today until 16:00
tomorrow. Stage 5 loadshedding will then be implemented from 16:00 until 05:00 on Thursday,
while Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented from 05:00 until 16:00. This pattern will
continue until further notice. Eskom will publish another update as soon as any significant
changes occur.
Over the past 24 hours, a generating unit each at the Camden, Kriel, Matla and Matimba power
stations were returned to service. Breakdowns at a unit each at Duvha, Lethabo, Majuba and
Tutuka power stations caused units to be taken offline for repairs. The delay in returning a unit
each to service at Arnot, Camden, Duvha and Kendal power stations are contributing to the
current capacity constraints.
Breakdowns currently amount to 19 031MW of generating capacity while 4 174MW of
generating capacity is out of service for planned maintenance.
