At the end of 2007, CEF Sustainability (Pty) Ltd, appointed by the Central Energy Fund with complimentary funding from the Norwegian Government, commissioned a study with the aim of evaluating hydroelectric potential around the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality (NMBMM), focusing on the extraction of hydro-energy from existing infrastructure. The field investigation and the compilation of a prefeasibility study were conducted by a consortium comprising (project management and hydropower), (electromechanical equipment), (transformers and transmission) and (environmental reporting). From the outset of the investigation the water supply infrastructure components of the Orange-Fish-Sundays Water Transfer Scheme (O-F-S WTS) and several other water supply impoundments, such as the Kouga, Impofu and Churchill dams and the Loerie Balancing Dam, were listed in the of 2008.
