Once the cable connections had been completed, the units will be deployed to the ODM depots at Caledon and Swellendam to serve as backup generators for the site offices and petrol pumps situated at these depots. From these locations, the mobile generators could then easily be deployed to assist with any dire needs at the nearby local municipalities in the Overberg District.

However, there is sufficient funding available within the grant allocation to cater for these necessary requirements.
