CONSTRUCTION at the Kusile power station has been halted after a worker was killed when a crane collapsed at the site, utility Eskom said on Tuesday.

An Eskom official said Kusile’s completion date would not be affected and the first unit of the coal-fired power station is still scheduled to come online in the first half of 2017.
