South Africa - Eskom Renewables Support Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 8) : Medupi Power Plant and associated infrastructure : Delta-Epsilon 6 x 765KV transmission power lines - environmental impact report volume four, maps (English)

The objective of the Eskom Renewables Support Project is to facilitate accelerated development of large scale renewable energy capacity in support of the long-term carbon mitigation strategy of South Africa. Negative impacts include: air pollution, noise disturbance, solid wastage, water pollution, and health and safety of worker. Mitigation measures include: 1) minimize on-site storage of petroleum products; 2) ensure proper maintenance procedures in place for vehicles and equipment; 3) deposit solid waste in containers and dispose at municipal waste disposal sites regularly; 4) supply, maintain and enforce the use of mobile toilets at the work sites; 5) negotiate water use for dust suppression and formation compaction with landowners; 6) noise levels associated with civil construction equipment at a distance of 15 metres from the source lie in the range of 75 decibels (dBA) to 100dBA; 7) keep all construction vehicles and equipment in good repair; and 8) avoid noisy night-time activities.
