Project name: Ezulwini / Siphocosini Hydroscheme 3 yr Inspection
Client name: Swaziland Electricity Board
Location: Ezulwini / Siphocosini in Hhohho

Project description
The Luphohlo – Ezulwini Hydro-Electric Scheme is situated approximately 10km from Mbabane. The scheme is comprised of a 45m high earth cored rockfill dam, which impounds a reservoir of 24 million cubic metres total capacity. Water is drawn through an intake on the eastern side of the reservoir and transferred through the Luphohlo mountain to Ezulwini. A riser and orifice construction are situated in the base of the surge shaft. From here the water passes through a high pressure tunnel and surface penstock to the 20 megawatt surface power station. The scheme operates under a 250m head. Reservoir impoundment occurred in November 1983 and electricity generation commenced in February 1985.
ZMCK responsibilities
