oa Civil Engineer in South Africa - Protection and reinstatement of the environment at Matimba Power Station

 

Abstract

The effect that the construction of Matimba Power Station would have on this picturesque and sensitive part of the Bushveld and the environment called for drastic measures to be taken with regard to site conservation and preservation. These measures required careful planning and a high degree of control with a fair amount of education, dedication on the part of the team being a major ingredient. The conservation of the natural assets during the construction process has paid dividends, with the structure today blending will into its surroundings.

Die effek van die konstruksiewerke by Matimba-kragstasie sou beduidend wees op die natuurlike ongeskonde en sensitiewe area van die Bosveld en die omgewing, wat daartoe gelei het dat drastiese optrede geneem moes word met betrekking tot die area se bewaring en beskerming. Die stappe wat geneem is, het deeglike beplanning, 'n hoë standaard van beheer en 'n redelike mate van opvoeding vereis en die toewyding van die span was 'n belangrike element. Die bewaring van die natuurlike bates gedurende konstruksiewerk het goeie dividende betaal, en die struktuur van die geboue pas goed in by die karakter van die omgewing.
