South Africa is risking stage six power cuts later on Tuesday.

That is the most recent admonition from Eskom.

The nation is still in front of an audience four until further notice yet we've quite recently heard that somewhere around 10 power units have now stumbled.

Stage 6 power cuts would see South Africans compelled to persevere between three or four episodes of planned power outages, which likens to a sum of no less than six hours without power on quickly.

Eskom CEO Andre de Ruyter said that the matrix was feeling the squeeze as the strike by a portion of its staff go on at power plants.

"This being winter, the heap estimate for tonight is very high - 31,990 megawatts of interest. We have limit accessible, at this stage, figure for 27,124 MW and that obviously makes the setback in age limit," De Ruyter said.

De Ruyter said that they were consuming diesel to attempt to keep the lights on.

"We are consuming around 2,000,000 liters of diesel each day at both Ankerlig as well as Gourikwa - those are our gas turbine open cycle locales. For the long stretch of June to date we have proactively consumed 85 million liters of diesel," De Ruyter said.
