In the aftermath of the Vaal Uprising, with the deployment of troops on 23 October 1984 during Operation Palmiet
and the heavy presence of police, the townships became embattled areas.
The event will also host site visit tours to some of the most exciting and power plants in Africa, including Katse Dam (one of the 10 largest concrete arch dams in the world in terms of its volume), Steenbras (the first hydroelectric pumped-storage scheme in Africa), Palmiet
PSS (won an award for Most Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement by SAICE) and South Africa's first concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) solar demonstration plant at the Aquila safari lodge, near Touws River.

Development of this peaceful holiday town was slow at first, but the opening of the Palmiet
River bridge in 1953 and the upgrading of Clarence Drive in the 1980s (the road from Gordon's Bay to Kleimnond, which has been described as one of the three most beautiful coastal routes in the world) brought more and more visitors to the area.
A near-isogenic line, 92RL28, (pedigree = PI 294994/ [5.sup.*]'Palmiet
') carrying a single dominant RWA resistance gene, was used as source of Dn5.
The existing 400 MW Palmiet
and 1000 MW Drakensberg plants constantly re-use water in a closed loop, which is then returned to a reservoir by utilising the turbines as pumps.
The source of DO used in this study was a newly developed near isogenic line of the cultivar Palmiet
