The power utility said that it would provide a more detailed update on Thursday.

“Eskom has to therefore preserve the low diesel levels at Gourikwa while delivering to Ankerlig, which will take time to replenish as it is done by road tankers. Stage 4 will be maintained until we can resume diesel supplies to the two open-cycle gas turbine stations. Camden station has a technical problem with the water chemistry and has already shut 3 units and will shut the remaining 4 units,” said Eskom spokesperson, Sikonathi Mantshantsha.
