Thank you for a well attended Annual General Meeting!  We appreciated the participation of ESKOM representatives as well as a number of non-members scouting out the situation.

The Chairman’s Report was very relevant and well presented and we are pleased to attach a copy for our members.

The Board is newly nominated and elected every year. Congratulations to the “new POLASA Board” that was unanimously elected!   Appreciation was expressed for the services of Nick van der Mescht and Billy Oosthuizen.  You will recognise the following:

The POLASA Board of Directors will meet on 4 December 2017 to elect a new Chairman and allocate new portfolios or confirm the existing ones.

An Open Industry Meeting followed the AGM and we were fascinated by the Presentation on “The Assumptions for the 2018 to 2027 Transmission Development Plan” by Ronald Marais of ESKOM.  The tremendour interest shown was clear from the extended question time.  Our thanks to Ronald.          You can access his presentation on:

NOTE:  POLASA has a presentation slot at the ESKOM PDP LINE CONSTRUCTION FORUM on Friday 24 November 2017.  We will probably see most of you there.
