Medupi plant work remains suspended

Comment on this story

Johannesburg - Construction of South Africa's 4,764 MW Medupi coal-fired power plant, meant to plug an electricity shortfall, remains suspended almost two weeks after labour protests erupted at the site, a spokeswoman for state-owned utility Eskom said on Tuesday.

She added the unrest poses a “material threat” to the timelines of the project, which was supposed to start generating power before the end of this year. - Reuters
