It is proven that children who encounter stable family environments, good nutrition and stimulation in the early
years are less likely to suffer from illness, struggling to adapt to the school environment, repeating grades,
and dropping out of school or needing remedial and special attention.
Dedisa Peaking Power believe that giving children a sense of belonging, showing them love and investing in their
education supports their long-term successes and will in time eradicate poverty – one family at a time.
It is for this reason Dedisa Peaking Power decided to contribute to the development of 17 Early Childhood Development
(ECD) practitioners from 17 ECD centres in iBhayi (Zwide, Motherwell, Wells Estate, KwaZakhele and New Brighton).
Training of the ECD practitioners started in January 2018 and will run until December 2018; this is a continuation programme from the
initial 2017 programme that the practitioners completed. Upon completion of the 2 year -long training, the ECD practitioners will
receive a SAQA accredited Level 4 certificate in ECD practice.
The training programme has been beneficial for the practitioners and the children at the centres.
We are proud to announce
that of the Dedisa Peaking Power funded practitioners has opened her own centre. Tshepiso Mokhoele independently started her centre,
Tsepies Educare in January 2018 with 7 children and now has 19 children.
Incubating Great Engineering Minds (IGEMS) programme
The IGEMS programme is aimed at providing additional maths and science tuition to grade 11 & 12 learners from previously disadvantaged backgrounds.
The tuition includes computer skills and leadership development held at the Missionvale Campus at Nelson Mandela University on Saturday mornings and during school holidays.
Dedisa Peaking Power is a highly technical and specialised power plant. In promoting STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)
and increasing chances of learners enrolling at university level by achieving good matric results.
Funding a number of Grade 11 & 12 learners from various underprivileged high schools within Port Elizabeth. On an annual basis,
these learners are given an opportunity to visit the Dedisa Peaking plant and gain firsthand experience of the operations of the plant.
Peakers Engineering Scholarship
Engineering is a very important discipline in the world of today and is crucial in the nature of the electricity generating business ,
it is for this reason that we award bursaries to students from previously communities who wish to study engineering .
Our beneficiaries are as follows :
2017 - Athenkosi Adam from Motherwell in Port Elizabeth, 1st ND Electrical Engineering student at Nelson Mandela University
2018- Kalen Abrahams from Wells Estate , 1st year BSC Mechnical Engineering student at Nelson Mandela University
Open cycle gas turbines have been reported to have significant reduction
for pollutants such as sulfur dioxides (SO2), carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen oxides (Nox).
the Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) generates steam that goes to the steam turbine. From the steam turbine, the power plant is
able to generate more electricity instead of rejecting the waste heat to the environment. In other words, the combined cycle gas
turbine maximizes efficiency.
Like a motorcar engine, a gas engine power plant is characterized by a four-stroke cycle. T
he major difference is that the fuel is natural gas or others.
