Name of the Project
Mokolo-Crocodile Water Augmentation Project Phase 2A (MCWAP-2A).

Location
Limpopo, South Africa.

Project Owner/s
Trans-Caledon Tunnel Authority (TCTA), an entity of the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS).

Project Description
The MCWAP-2A aims to augment water supplies to the Lephalale municipality, State-owned power utility Eskom’s Matimba and Medupi power stations, and Exxaro’s Grootegeluk mine. It also aims to allow for future economic development in the area.

The project comprises a 125 m3/y abstraction weir at the Crocodile river, pumpstations and a 160 km pipeline to transfer 75 m3/y of water from the Crocodile river, near Thabazimbi, to the Lephalale area, as well as a river management system, initially designated for completion in a third phase, now incorporated into Phase 2A.

Potential Job Creation
It is estimated that the project will employ at least 1 000 people during its implementation, with 50% of the engineers on the project expected to be from a previously disadvantaged background.

It will also offer learnerships and bursaries to mostly previously disadvantaged people from the local community.

Capital Expenditure
The project is estimated at R12.3-billion (as at April 2018).

Planned Start/End Date
MCWAP-2A is targeted for completion in May 2026.

Latest Developments
The full implementation of MCWAP-2A has started.

The project is in the fundraising, tender design,  and procurement phase.

Key Contracts, Suppliers and Consultants
GBN Joint-Venture, comprising Gibb, Bigen Africa Services and Nyeleti Consulting (professional service provider responsible for the design and construction supervision of the project).
