The project entailed the supply of a complete 500 kVA power supply point to the Otjiwanda Mall. During the construction of the mall, CENORED provided a 100 kVA temporary supply point required for the construction works. Now completed, the 500 kVA mini-sub fulfils the electrical needs of the mall which houses shops such as Pick n' Pay, Hungry Lion as well as clothing shop. The mall has brought about the much needed retail services and hence economic growth to the people of Grootfontein.

The MV & LV material are to be supplied by the Contractor. The project is 90% completed and once completed, the supply of power will ensure that the school operates to provide for the educational needs of the children of the town.
Omulunga Blekkies Dorp Electrification
In the Blekkies Dorp informal settlement, CENORED installed MV & LV equipment to connect house holds to the electrical grid. A total of 251 households were connected and to date, the beneficiaries are able to enjoy all the services provided for by the provision of electricity.
Another 100 households (approximate) are planned to be electrified in the same settlement in the 2015/16 financial year.
Shunt Reactor Installation
In an effort to maintain and improve the quality of power distributed and supplied by CENORED, three reactor units were procured and installed in the Octrooi, Maroelaboom and Avontuur reticulations.
To date, the power factor of the power delivered in these areas has improved. CENORED continues to perform power flow studies and implement power factor correction measures where and when required.
