Network Planning

Our expertise in network planning ensures that your power distribution systems are optimised for the performance and reliability of your electrical distribution networks. Using advanced simulation software such as Digsilent PowerFactory, PSS/E, and ReticMaster, we conduct load contingencies, voltage profiles, and fault level studies to design resilient networks exceeding forecasted demands.

Master Planning

We work closely with our clients to analyse current infrastructure, identify areas for improvement, and create comprehensive master plans that align with their goals and objectives. Whether you’re expanding an existing network or building from scratch, we have the expertise to guide you through every step of the process. We analyse load forecasting data, incorporating statistical and geo-based methodologies to anticipate future requirements accurately.

Infrastructure Economic Planning

We conduct in-depth financial analyses to evaluate the economic feasibility of proposed projects and identify opportunities for cost savings. Our team conducts feasibility studies to assess the viability of proposed projects, considering factors such as capital investment, operating expenses, and potential revenue streams, we help clients make informed decisions that maximise ROI and long-term sustainability. We provide comprehensive reports outlining the economic implications of different options, empowering you to make financially sound decisions.


Accurate surveying is essential for the successful implementation of engineering projects. Our surveying services utilise state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to gather precise data on terrain, existing infrastructure, and environmental conditions. We ensure your projects start on the right foundation with thorough and accurate surveys.

Feasibility Studies

Feasibility studies are a critical component of the engineering planning process, providing valuable insights into the viability of proposed projects. Conducted with meticulous attention to detail, evaluating the technical, financial, and environmental aspects to determine the likelihood of project success.
Feasibility studies serve as a cornerstone in the engineering planning process, offering crucial insights into project viability. Conducted meticulously, they assess technical, financial, and environmental facets, determining project success likelihood.

Our studies encompass:

  • Demand and generation forecasting
  • Transmission and sub-transmission master planning
  • Integration studies for power stations and renewable energy
  • Load flow and voltage stability assessments
  • Dynamic and transient stability analyses
  • Fault level examinations
  • Grid compliance evaluations and financial modelling.
  • Quantity and cost estimates
  • Aid in power system and purchase agreements,
  • Offer support in line route and substation site selection through spatial data analysis.

Earthing Studies

Effective earthing is crucial for the safety and reliability of power systems. Our earthing studies assess the electrical grounding infrastructure to mitigate risks associated with fault currents and lightning strikes. We provide recommendations to optimise earthing systems, ensuring compliance with safety standards and regulations.

Electromagnetic Field Studies

We conduct electromagnetic field studies to assess the potential impact of electromagnetic radiation on human health and the environment. Using advanced modelling techniques, we evaluate EMF levels and recommend measures to minimise exposure and ensure regulatory compliance.

Environmental Studies

Environmental considerations are integral to sustainable power infrastructure development. These studies assess the ecological impact of proposed projects, identifying potential risks and mitigation strategies. We work closely with regulatory agencies to ensure compliance with environmental regulations and promote environmentally responsible practices. This extends towards providing technical input to Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) and aiding in the determination of route corridors to minimise ecological disturbance.

Geo-technical Studies

Geo-Technical studies are essential for understanding subsurface conditions and mitigating geological risks. Our team conducts comprehensive Geo-Technical investigations to assess soil properties, geological formations, and seismic hazards. We provide valuable insights informing site selection, foundation design, and risk management strategies.

At Trans-Africa Projects, we are committed to delivering world-class engineering planning solutions that drive success for national and international clients, offering specialised services such as negotiation of financial models, power purchase agreements (PPAs), and wholesale pricing strategies.
