DESCRIPTION OF CMI-JV PROJECT (INGULA PUMPED STORAGE SCHEME)

The Ingula Pumped Storage Scheme is proposed as a Pumped Storage Project with a capacity of 1332 Mw and an Energy Storage Capacity of 21,000 Mw

The scheme is located about 23 Km North East of Van Reenen, within the little Drakensburg Mountain Range. The scheme involves an upper reservoir in the Free State Province, an underground power tunnel complex and Power Station, and a lower reservoir in KwaZulu-Natal Province. The distance between the upper and lower reservoirs is about 6 Km and the elevation difference approximately 470m.

The upper dam is proposed as a concrete faced rock fill embankment dam about 49m high forming a reservoir of total volume of 22.4 MCM and an active storage Of 19.1 MCM. the lower dam will be a roller compacted concrete dam about 40m high forming a reservoir of total volume of about 26.7 MCM and active storage of 19.1 MCM.

The Underground Power House Complex will consist of Machine Hall, A Transformer Hall and associated Tunnels, Shafts and Caverns. The Machine Hall will house 4 reversible Francis type Pump /Turbines, coupled directly with generator /motors, each with a rated generating capacity of 333 Mw. The rated generating head is approximately 434m.

The Pump/Turbines will be connected to the upper reservoir by twin concrete and steel lined over their lower part. Steel lined extended draft tubes and a single concrete lined tailrace tunnel will connect the pump /turbines to the lower reservoir. Headrace surge shafts and tailrace surge chambers will also be provided.

The project, particularly the upper reservoir, is located in an environmentally sensitive area and considerable emphasis has been placed on environmental management in the design, construction and operation of the scheme.
