Cape Town - Eskom is moving ahead to power South Africa with Ingula’s first unit going into commercial operation, meaning that it can supply 333 MW of power to the national grid during peak times.

"Eskom’s Group Capital Division handed over Ingula’s first unit (Unit 4) to its generation division for commercial operation at 18:00 on Friday, 10 June 2016," it said in a statement on Monday. "It is the first of four units to commercially support the national grid ahead of schedule".

All four of Ingula’s units are scheduled for commercial operation in 2017. Unit 4 was synchronised to the national grid in March and has been undergoing optimisation while supporting the grid.
