Duvha Power Station - croppedEskom reports that it has increased the power output from Majuba power station from 600 to 1200 MW.  The additional power has assisted with the management of water levels at its Drakensberg and Palmiet pumped water schemes which are used as peak demand stations, and has saved the country from load shedding. The utility says that it is aware that certain areas are without power but that these outages are not caused by the Majuba incident or load shedding, but by technical problems in local municipal infrastructure. Eskom says that it will do whatever is needed to protect the national grid, and that it will only implement load shedding if it becomes necessary.
