One of the components of the Medupi project is a coal-fired power station being constructed by Eskom at Lephalale, Limpopo province. The station has a planned total installed capacity of 4 800 MW, which will be delivered through six units with an individual capacity of 800 MW each. When completed, it will be the fourth-largest coal-fired power station in the world. Some 400 foundations, ranging in size from a few square metres to elements of hundreds of square metres, are at present being constructed as part of the project.
