Proposed Hlaziya 400-132 kV Powerline Project
(The MTS Integration Project) from close to Jeffreys Bay to Grassridge, near the Coega SEZ, Eastern Cape Province.
Eskom proposes to construct, sometime in the next 5 to 10 years, a large powerline, referred to as the Hlaziya 400-132 kV MTS Integration Project, from Thyspunt near Jeffreys Bay to the Grassridge substation and the Dedisa substation close to the Coega SEZ. This project is part of Eskom’s program for improving electrical transmission in the area, and the need for this arises from the anticipated increase in renewable power generation in the area (700 MW wind generation capacity has been forecasted). The majority of the project falls within the promulgated Strategic Transmission Corridors, as per the Government Notice No. 113 dated 16 February 2018.
