S.Africa's Eskom says two new coal plants ready by 2021


South Africa’s struggling power utility Eskom expects two of its long-delayed coal-fired power plants, Medupi and Kusile, to be fully operational by 2021, its acting head of group capital Abram Masango said on Wednesday.

Medupi and Kusile are expected to add a combined 9,000 megawatts to South Africa’s strained electricity grid.
