Eskom: Medupi work yet to restart

Jan 24 2013 14:47

Johannesburg - Construction on the Medupi power plant had not restarted on Thursday as expected but normal operations for building the plant should soon be restored, a spokesperson for Eskom said.

"The site is open. The site is safe. We have asked the contractors to start mobilising the workers and restoring normal operations," spokesperson Hilary Joffe told Reuters. She did not say exactly when construction would resume.

Eskom a day earlier said it anticipated construction would restart on Thursday after work was stopped last week because of labour protests.

The plant is supposed to start producing power by late this year and is crucial for easing tight supplies.
