Enough coal in event of strike

The New Age (Western Cape) - - Inside -

ESKOM has healthy stock­piles across its coal­fired power sta­tions and was build­ing them fur­ther ahead of a po­ten­tial coal wage strike by NUM, it said.

“To mit­i­gate the im­pact from this im­pend­ing strike, the util­ity is work­ing tire­lessly to re­claim coal from cur­rent stock­piles, as well as build up op­er­a­tional stock­piles,” Eskom said.

NUM plans to strike from Sun­day after wage talks broke down last week at mines run by An­glo Coal, Del­mas Coal, Exxaro and Glen­core, which ac­count for about half of SA’s coal pro­duc­tion. – Reuters
