Eskom’s Revised Load-Shedding Timetable

Eskom has revised its load-shedding schedule, opting to maintain Stage 2 until Monday afternoon, February 26, 2024, marking a deviation from the previously anticipated Stage 3 implementation.

Schedule Highlights:

  • Stage 2 Extension: Continuous until 16:00 on Monday, thanks to replenished emergency reserves over the weekend.
  • Stage 3 Introduction: From 16:00 on Monday to 16:00 on Tuesday, transitioning to an alternating pattern with Stage 2.

Operational Update:

  • Capacity Recovery: Eskom expects to reintegrate 4,170MW of generating capacity by Wednesday.
  • Continuous Monitoring: Any significant updates will be communicated promptly.

Recent Challenges:

  • Stage 4 Precursor: Last Thursday’s transition to continuous Stage 4 load-shedding was triggered by the loss of six units, impacting both Kendal and Duvha stations.
  • Kendal’s Complications: Detailed explanation provided for the outage at Kendal, including a leaking safety valve and a contamination incident in the water treatment plant.

Eskom’s proactive measures and strategic adjustments aim to mitigate the impact of load-shedding on South Africans, demonstrating the utility’s ongoing efforts to stabilize the power grid amidst operational hurdles.
