A feasibility study determined if the expansion of the Morupule Power Station was economically and financially viable and worthy of further development. It found that the expansion of Morupule Power Station to be viable. Generation expansion at Morupule Power Station (coal fired and dry-cooled), was implemented in the following phases:
(a) 2 x 100 MW units
(b) 2 x 100 MW units
