TO support construction activities of the mine complex, Kalagadi Manganese (KM) requires about 10mVA. Eskom committed to make available only 3MVa to KM during the construction phase, while additional power (total 13MVa) could be made available only in July 2012 following the construction of the power from the Ferrum substation. To access the 3MVa, Kalagadi had to build power lines from the Hotazel substation to the Umtu substation, at a total cost of R5.7 million.
DEAR ALL, we launch this de- but edition of Kalagadi News with an immense sense of pride.
