Koeberg unit running again, Eskom says
Johannesburg - A unit at the Koeberg Power Station in Cape Town is running again after an automatic shutdown earlier in the week due to a fault, Eskom said on Thursday.
"The fault was rectified and the unit returned to service last night [Wednesday]," said Eskom.
"Both Koeberg units are operating at full power."
On Monday, Koeberg unit two was shut down by a protection system on a motor. Eskom said this was not related to the oil spill along Bloubergstrand, south of the power station.
There was no interruption of electricity supply as a result of the shutdown.
Koeberg unit one was fully operational, said Eskom.
