Diesel shortage fuels Stage 4 power cuts

Brace yourself for even more darkness.

JOHANNESBURG - Eskom is implementing Stage 4 power cuts indefinitely.

The power utility says this is due to delays in the supply of diesel.

A vessel carrying the fuel has not been able to berth in Mossel Bay due to rough seas.

Eskom says it will have to preserve low diesel levels at Gourikwa.

Delivery to Ankerlig will take some time as it is done by road tankers.

Stage 4 will therefore be maintained till diesel supply resumes to the two Open Cycle Gas Turbines.
