Unit Two has been safely supplying electricity to the grid during the Unit One outage, which is currently the longest in the facility’s history.

This will continue until the start of Eskom’s next outage, which will include replacing its original three steam generators, the company announced today.
Once Unit One is stable and the necessary commissioning tests have been completed, Unit Two’s outage will begin. The synchronization of Koeberg’s Unit 1 with the grid today makes us happy.
According to Eskom’s Group Executive for Generation, Bheki Nxumalo, this milestone is the result of the efforts and tenacity of its workers, suppliers, and contractors who have endured a protracted and difficult outage. I applaud everyone who worked on the project for making sure the unit was safely put back into service.
