Umoyilanga 132 KV Overhead Line in the Sundays River Valley Local Municipality and the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, Eastern Cape Province (DEFF Reference Number: TBC)

Umoyilanga (Pty) Ltd is proposing the development of a 132 kV Overhead Line (OHL) near Kariega (Uitenhage) in the Sundays River Valley Local Municipality (SRVLM) and the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (NMBM), Eastern Cape Province.

The proposed Umoyilanga 132 kV OHL will connect the authorised Dassiesridge (Umoyilanga) Wind Energy Facility (WEF) and Ancillary Infrastructure to Eskom’s Olifantskop Substation. The proposed OHL will largely fall within the footprint of existing roads/fence lines. Two (2) alternative layouts have been assessed: a ±17 km long 132 kV OHL (preferred alternative, Alternative 1) and a ±20 km long 132 kV OHL (Alternative 2), including a 31 m (15.5 m on each side of the line) servitude for each. These OHL alternatives have been assessed within 50 m corridors (25 m on each side).

You are hereby invited to register as an Interested & Affected Party (I&AP) and/or to comment on the Draft Basic Assessment Report (BAR) and associated reports. Please
