Date of publication: 03 August 2012

195. Mrs N W A Michael (DA) to ask the Minister of Public Enterprises:
Whether the construction at the Medupi Power Plant is on track in order for it to go online in the last quarter of 2013; if not, why not; if so, how was this conclusion reached? NO2448E

Reply:

According to Eskom, the first unit of the Medupi Power Plant will be ready to go online in the last quarter of 2013. A full integrated programme is used to reflect the individual schedules of all contractors and this reflects synchronisation of power to the grid in the last quarter of 2013. Furthermore, a significant milestone was reached in June this year when a pressure testing exercise commenced to have the first boiler ready as part of the first unit’s power delivery in 2013.
