Eskom (Hendrina Power Station) Donates PPE To Nkangala TVET College
The Nkangala TVET College today welcomed donation of about 1 222 items of PPEs (Personal Protective Equipment) worth about R500 000.00. The items are a combination of overalls, two-pieces and dust coats. The college principal, Mr Maimela CM welcomed the donation to the college and commended the Hendrina Power Station for their kind gesture of thinking about this college in this manner. He further indicated the wishes and hopes to the Eskom delegation that this should be the beginning of good relations between college and power station. “This donation will go a long way in helping both the college’s staff and students in the workshops and save the college a lot of money to buy PPEs in the coming few years”, said Maimela.
Mr Sihle Hlatshwayo (Maintenance Manager: Eskom) said “the power station management saw it fit that instead of disposing off the items, as they were receiving new PPE stock, it would be noble to donate this old stock to the college”. “It was an easy decision to take since the college is the feeder institution to this power station and many others around the region in terms of the skilled artisans and technicians” said Hlatshwayo.
