The Spring Grove Dam in Rosetta is part of the Mooi Mgeni Transfer Scheme - Phase 2 (MMTS-2). Water from the dam will be transferred by pipeline to the Mpofana River augmenting the current system by 60 million m3 to supply water to about six million downstream users in the Durban and Pietermaritzburg areas.
A first-of-its-kind moisture measurement system that combines Bluetooth, GSM, Windows, smartphone and microwave technology has now been made available in the local market, exclusively by a leading concrete equipment, machinery and technology supplier in Africa.
Imagine no rust; no leaking water pipes; manhole covers that no longer get stolen; installing bridges using half the number of cranes and old buildings that can be given a futuristic look by adding a thin outer shell. These are but a few of what composite materials have to offer to improve our municipal infrastructure.
A smart grid facilitates the efficient, intelligent use of available energy, reducing demand on South Africa's already strained network, and potentially easing the demand for expensive new power stations. How can the barriers to entry be overcome in time to yield maximum benefit?
Atlas Copco's OSC range of condensate separators for compressed air systems delivers high performance and versatility. The use of the most innovative lubricants is not always enough to meet regulations.
