Cape Town – Eight companies with extensive industrial operations which need uninterrupted power supply filed an urgent court application to stop Eskom from cutting the electricity of the Madibeng municipality in North West province, Fin24's sister publication Netwerk24 reported on Tuesday.

The court bid in the Pretoria high court gave rise to Eskom agreeing not to cut electricity to the municipality at scheduled times daily from January 26.

The companies - Bridgestone SA, Bosch SA, Syngenta Crop Protection, Inergy Automotive Systems SA, Mpact Brits Plastic Containers, Polystar Tape and Fabric, Polymark Recycling and Kromberg and Schubert – demanded that Eskom convey a detailed plan and the reasons for its decision to cut electricity supply to the municipality, and asked the court to rule that Eskom be prohibited from cutting the power unless it provides a comprehensive list of the reasons.
