Eskom Chief Executive Andre de Ruyter says the power-utility’s unplanned capacity outages is currently sitting at one of its lowest-ever levels.

The Medupi power station, where an explosion was reported in August of last year, and the Koeberg Unit 2, which is currently out of service for maintenance, also contributes to the decreased availability of power on the national grid.

De Ruyter says this impressively low levels of outages is a positive reflection on the performance of the national grid.
