Eskom resumes rolling blackouts after generation units break down once more

South African utility Eskom said on Tuesday it would be forced to resume rotational power cuts from midday to 22:00 due to breakdowns in its generating units which slashed power supply. "Eskom regrets to inform the public that due to a severely constrained generation system as a result of multiple unit breakdowns, it has become necessary to implement stage 2 load shedding," the state-owned company said, warning this was likely to persist for the rest of the week.
