Eskom taking 980MW Koeberg unit offline

Eskom will take Koeberg's unit 2 nuclear reactor offline on Monday, 11 December 2023, for the work required to extend its operating licence.

Electricity minister Kgosientsho Ramokgopa said Eskom anticipates that the steam generator replacement work for unit 2 will be completed far faster than it was for unit 1.

Why don't they start the first week in 2024, give the team some rest.
 
Not gonna make a difference. Unit 1 had been off since last year before returning to service 2 weeks ago.

Now unit 1 is back online, but unit 2 is being removed. No loss or gain in generating capacity overall.
The last few weeks Koeberg has been outputting 1.6GW so we will lose at least 500MW.

:ROFL:
When it's specifically mentioned that repair time will be less than the previous, then it's usually so much more.
