FBAR: EA for the Proposed construction of the new 88kV Kashan Substation

Short Project Title: FBAR: EA for the Proposed construction of the new 88kV Kashan Substation
   
Project Title: Final BASIC ASSESSMENT REPORT: Proposed construction of the new 88kV Kashan Substation with associated power line and access road to the existing Hekpoort Substation.
   
Project Synopsis: SRK Consulting (Pty) Ltd (SRK) has been appointed by Eskom Holdings SOC Limited (Eskom) to conduct a Basic Assessment (BA) process for an Environmental Authorisation (EA) application.

Eskom is in the process of expanding their power supply grid by supplying additional substations to areas in need of additional capacity and supplying electricity to areas with increasing electricity demand in the North West and Gauteng Province.

The proposed project includes the construction of a new substation in Kashan and a power line of approximately 13 km to the existing Hekpoort Substation. The proposed Kashan Substation falls within the Gauteng Province, north-west of Krugersdorp and it is intended to alleviate the power supply demands experienced by Eskom in the area and to provide electrical infrastructure for future development.

The proposed Kashan Substation footprint area will measure 12 000m2 and will be connected to the existing Hekpoort Substation via an 88 kV power line which runs approximately 13 km in a north easterly direction from Kashan (Gauteng Province) to Hekpoort in the North West Province
 
   
SRK Project Reference Number: 465044
   
Official Reference Number: 14/12/16/3/3/1/1273
   
Project Location: The proposed project is situated within two provinces. The proposed Kashan substation is situated in the Gauteng province in the West Rand District Municipality and within the Mogale City Local Municipality. The proposed power line route alternatives from the Kashan substation to the existing Hekpoort substation run in a north easterly direction in Gauteng for approximately 10.34 km (Route 2) and 11.04 (Route 1). They then crosses into the Madibeng Local Municiplality within the Bojanala District Municipality, in the North West Province for 1.02 km (Route 2) and 1.58 km (Route 1).

The proposed substation is located approximately 27 km North West of the town of Krugersdorp, approximately 35 km South West of the town of Brits, and approximately 54 km North West of Johannesburg as the crow flies. The Hartebeespoort Dam is located 25 km South West of the Kashan substation.
