The Medupi Power Station is a new dry-cooled coal-fired power station being built by Eskom near Lephalale in Limpopo province, South Africa. When completed, the power station is to have six boilers each powering an 800 MW turbine, producing 4800 MW of power. It is expected to become the largest dry-cooled coal fired power station in the world. Parsons Brinckerhoff is providing engineering and project management support to Eskom, South Africa’s power utility, for the development of the Medupi Power Station. The new plant, located 217 miles (350 kilometres) north of Johannesburg, will provide much-needed power to a growing population in a region where there hasn’t been a major new power plant in almost 20 years. It is being procured under 38 design-build contract packages.
