AFD and Eskom commit to a competitive electricity sector BRICS The groupchief executive, Phakamani Hadebe, said: “We have done an extensive winter planand review of our power system and identified the problems.  Last week,the power utility indicated that it now has a better understanding of rootcauses of breakdowns following work done by its technical review team and has areliable maintenance plan for its plant, with maintenance being prioritisedover this period. Featured image: Stock According tohim, the power utility managed to go through periods of high demand in theevening peak without using a lot of diesel. “The firstfew days in April have given reassurance of the integrity of our plan as we managedto avoid loadshedding on three days where it was forecasted due to goodperformance of our plant,” noted Hadebe. Kusile 3 isalso expected to synchronise to the grid for the first time towards the end ofApril. Imports from Mozambique’s Cahora Bassa are expected to be back at full load. Eskom has noted that South Africans can make a huge difference by rallying towards the common cause of using electricity efficiently, having the collective potential of reducing demand by up to 500MW and saving the equivalent of 1 unit at a power station.center_img Eskom managed to avoid loadshedding “While the plan gives us confidence that we may go through winter with no or limited loadshedding, we are mindful of the potential of risks on a very tight power system which may result in shifts on the power system and which could result in loadshedding.” TAGSKusileMozambique Previous articleLifesaving technology solution wins 2019 Edison AwardNext articleS.Africa: Raw sewerage continues to flood major river Babalwa BunganeBabalwa Bungane is the content producer for ESI Africa – Clarion Events Africa.

Protected from the panda-demic, a bear head-wearing Bill Murray chats with Ellen about ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’

They were so much a part of the creation of it and the fun of it,” Murray told the chat-show host. Murray had buried the hatchet with Ramis before the filmmakers’ death, ending a decades-old falling out with his Groundhog Day director. In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, McKenna Grace plays the granddaughter of Ramis’ Egon Spengler. The spirit — pardon the pun — of the character “is featured in the story of the movie,” Murray explained.“So, it will be very interesting,” he added.Ghostbusters: Afterlife moved was set to open July 10 before the coronavirus pandemic unfolded. The movie, directed by Jason Reitman, the son of original Ghostbusters movies Ivan Reitman, will now open March 5, 2021.Avengers: Infinity War‘s Carrie Coon, Stranger Things‘ Finn Wolfhard, and Paul Rudd also star.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
