Cape Town - Power utility Eskom rejected any insinuation of favouritism towards Tegeta in a statement on Friday.

Eskom explained that it regularly engages all its coal suppliers on the required volumes and qualities it needs as demand levels vary, adding that contracting relationships are concluded on "sound commercial principles and considerations". 

It said that in emergency situations, it has utilised the prepayment mechanism to ensure security of supply. "Furthermore, it is important to note that prepayment is a common commercial practice that is used widely and not unique to Eskom."
