Cape Town - Roman Crookes, project director of the new Medupi power station, has resigned and will vacate his post at the end of January, Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe confirmed on Sunday.

Crookes is leaving Eskom to pursue other opportunities, he said.

He told Fin24 Crookes’ departure is not a major concern for the state power utility as with any other project team there are other managers working very closely on the project and thus know what’s going on.
