Abstract

The Drakensberg Pumped Storage Scheme in conjunction with the second phase of the Tugela-Vaal Government Water Project is a multipurpose project for the generation of hydro-electric power and the supply of water to the Vaal River catchment. The construction of the dams required for reciprocating storage, power generation, and water supply and storage for interbasin transfer is briefly described in this paper.

Die Drakensberg Pompopgaarskema tesame met die tweede fase van die Tugela-Vaal-Staatswaterprojek is 'n meerdoelige projek vir die opwekking van hidro-elektriese krag en die voorsiening van water aan die Vaalrivier opvanggebied. Die konstruksie van die damme wat vir wisselende opgaring, kragopwekking, en watervoorsiening en opgaring vir oordrag tussen opvanggebiede benodig word, word kortliks in hierdie referaat beskryf.
