PROJECT OVERVIEW:

  • Sebenza, the largest substation of City Power, was a complicated but successful build. The technology was new and there were also multiple stakeholders that had to be co-ordinated.
  • Engkon was one of the contractors to CONCO and had 5 sub-contractors of its own and managed 130 people.
  • Engkon took away several learnings from this project – In particular, the importance of choosing the right people; the extra lead times when dealing with multiple stakeholders; and the importance of strong relationships and collaboration.
