Eskom has announced that the construction of a permanent coal-handling solution for the Majuba power station has been completed, including the rebuilding of Silo 20, the reinforcement of Silos 10 and 30, lift shaft, two piers and the coal conveyor system. On 1 November 2014 the wall of Coal Silo 20 at Majuba collapsed. Due to the structural failure of the coal silo and the associated conveying infrastructure, no coal supply to any of the station’s three silos was possible. To ensure coal supply to all six units at the power station, an interim solution was put in place which involved the construction of a conveyor system which bypassed the coal silos. Construction work for the permanent coal-handling solution commenced at the beginning of February 2016 and was concluded by the end of the year.
