Physical model tests were conducted on a variety of proposed flow component designs for the Palmiet Pumped Storage Scheme. The purpose of the tests was to evaluate these designs and propose modifications to overcome any shortcomings found and to retest if necessary. The tests were undertaken by Eskom's Engineering Investigation Division in close co-operation with the Eskom design team at Megawatt Park and the civil consultants (SVE) to ensure that the final designs were validated and available for incorporation into the construction schedule.
