Eskom spending R7 billion on massive grid upgrades

A panel of five transformer suppliers appointed by Eskom will compete for upcoming transformer contracts valued at roughly R7 billion over four years.

The power utility says the contracts aim to unlock the grid and provide access to reliable electricity transmission across South Africa.
 
So they're planning on doubling the amount of generation capacity, over the next 10 years...?

Hard to believe. And where are they expecting this new generation to come from? IPPs, now that the grid is being "opened"?

Nah, the other generation will be breaking at the same speed so we should break even hopefully.

They're talking about capacity. Not generation. Where's all this new generation coming from to fill this capacity.

Isn’t there some sort of a 10 to 15 point plan from one of Cyril’s planning commissions for that?
 
IPP's for sure. Its just that its pie in the sky stuff at the moment imho.
I know municipalities have plans for generation, like Durban has a bunch of GW plan, but I mean...yeah, good luck with that. Nuclear lmao

I don't particularly care when Rama Squirrel says things. What's the main points though?

1. Does Gwede Mantashe benefit directly or indirectly from these contracts?

2. Are those who benefit from these contracts linked to Gwede Mantashe in any way, shape or form?

Those are the only two questions journalists and investigators should be interested in. Shine your torch into that dark abyss and take a good look.
