GE’s commitment to work with the customer will bring the country’s government closer to realizing its energy supply goals. Upon completion, the power station will produce a total of 4800MW and will be sufficient to meet the electricity needs of 3.5 million households in the country.

This is a major milestone for GE and our customer Eskom as Unit 4 will be the third unit out of six units to be transferred to commercial operation marking the half way point of completing the project.

Once completed in 2020, Medupi will be the fourth-largest coal-fired power plant in the world and the largest in Africa. GE’s scope includes 6 full EPC turbine islands, air cooled Condensers and overall project & construction management.
