Even if some employees have started showing up for work at the power plants, absenteeism is still at a high level. The illegal strike forced the postponement of necessary maintenance tasks. It will take days or weeks to get rid of this backlog. It is crucial to remember that the system will continue to be limited and susceptible to further failures while recovery efforts are ongoing, according to the power utility.

The group also stated that Eskom is unable to put some generators back into service due to the illegal and unprotected labour action that has severely disrupted its power plants.

Eskom has been forced to keep implementing preventative steps in order to preserve emergency generation capacity and protect plant from damage. Depending on the condition of the plant, there is still a chance that the load shedding stage may need to change at any time.

"At this time, 3,161 MW are undergoing planned maintenance, while 17,395 MW of additional capacity are not usable because of failures.
