JOHANNESBURG, Oct 21 (Reuters) – South Africa’s ailing state
power firm Eskom said its 2,000 megawatt Hendrina Power Station
had suffered a “multi unit trip” on Monday, but that the failure
would not lead to the nationwide electricity cuts it implemented
“This trip, while unfortunate, does not impact our status at
this point, as we have sufficient emergency reserves. We can
confirm that no loadshedding is expected today,” the utility
said on its twitter page.
