oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Machine shafts and foundations

Volume 31, Issue 11
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The design of the machine shafts and the foundations to the pump turbines and generator motors was undertaken by SVE consultants and ESKOM design engineers. The Electrowatt Engineering Services group of the consulting consortium had been involved in the design and construction of many such schemes throughout the world and therefore had ideal experience for this project. In the design of the machine foundations a very close interface exists between the civil engineering consultant and the mechanical and electrical contractors.
