The Pungwe A scheme is located in the Honde Valley at the confluence of the Nyamombe and Pungwe rivers.
The steel penstock has a diameter of 900mm and captures a maximum flow of 1,000 litres per second at the weir on the Nyamombe river. It is returned to the river just below the confluence with the Pungwe, a distance of 2,700m.
The turbine is a Pelton design by Gilkes and the electricity generated is despatched into the grid via a 33KV line.
The maximum scheme output is 2.725MW and has a head of 312m. It is designed to operate at 40% of installed capacity, and generate 9,548 MWh per year.
