Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown confirmed on Thursday that the second 800 MW unit at the Medupi coal-fired power station project, in Limpopo, had been synchronised to the grid. She said in a statement that Unit 5 – one of six being built as part of the 4 800 MW project – would become commercially operational by March 2018. The first unit, or Unit 6, began feeding power into the grid in March 2015 and entered commercial operation on August 23.
