Khayelitsha is a non-standard Substation with 1x 66kV Incoming Feeder, 2x 12.5MVA 66/11kV Transformers and 6 x 11kV Feeders.  The Substation was refurbished and upgraded to 2 x 66/11kV 20MVA Transformers and 2 x 66kV feeder bays. The 66kV Busbar 1A and 1B is 80mm aluminium tubular busbar with 2 x 66kV bus section Isolators. The new 11kV Switchgear is placed in a new 11 kV Switch room to line up with Eskom specifications with the new protection separated from the 11kV switch gear.
