Order to alleviate the critical electricity supply

General project description
The project was carried out in order to alleviate the critical electricity supply shortages on the Cape Town Metropolitan.

The project was an extremely fast-track high priority, high profile project, with production, quality and programme being of paramount importance. The scope of works was varied significantly including changed design pile diameters. Plans were therefore put into place to meet the client’s requirements by buying additional equipment.
