Five budget quotes for four emergency procurement energy projects reached expiry date [SOUND]

# Eskom says five budget quotes for the grid integration of the remaining four projects in the Risk Mitigation Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme expired on 31 December 2023 and will not be extended further.
