The PGBI Group was contracted by Canelands Trust to carry out a study in the Mkwasine Sugar Cane Estate in Zimbabwe. PGBI, in turn, appointed Greene Consulting Engineers (Pty) Ltd to assist with the study.
The potential supply of additional water to the Mkwasine Estate environs, through raising the Manjirenji and Siya dams and the construction of Mkwasine and Mukazi dams, was investigated. The potential 2011 USD costs involved were also examined.
Sources of water in the area have previously been investigated by the Ministry of Water Development. Canelands Trust endeavoured to make a first broad evaluation of the economics, routing and phasing of possible supply routes, as well as the method for delivering the water stored in the dams to land areas under consideration for the growing of sugar cane.
