some people don't understand what safety & maintenance is all about!!

all boilers have safety blow off valves! to prevent things like this - but if it's NOT maintained & serviced regularly then shyt hits the fan!!

“The furnace pressure had increased beyond the tolerance limit, resulting in a Class 5 explosion which led to the loss of a 600MW unit,” said Eskom.

We used to think R1bn was a lot of money to write-off, nowadays Eskom wants R100bn of debt to disappear...
