Yeah that is mostly what I expect..

But the optimistic part of me would hope that there are actually contingency plans somewhere...
Electricity has just been restored, seems the contingency plan is working. :D it was off since around 8am.
Or maybe it was just regular maintanance.

The fact that they have generators at MWP shows you the confidence in their own grid and staff.

/joking it’s normal practice for any utility.
Not that I'm disagreeing with you, but I was referring to our unit's own generator that kicked in once the power went out.

EDIT: Oh, I realise now you may not have been referring to my generators comment. Sorry.

Judging by how nervous 2 of my very close relatives, and ESKOM employees, are about current situations at the stations. I am inclined to believe that we are in for a few exciting days.

And they never get nervous or bothered by the fear-mongering reports like in the past. So kinda makes me nervous this time round.

The unions should be declared terrorist organizations and disbanded. Staff should be fired and replaced.
