Alternative water supply and treatment solutions in Durban (SA)
As a result of persistent drought conditions in South Africa a customer (an international consumer goods producer with a production facility in Durban) experiences the pressure of limited availability of water. The ever dropping dam levels currently result in higher risk for intermittent water supply resulting in unplanned and forced production stops in case no water is available.
Aquest Colsen acts as one-stop solution provider for our customer base and arranges for the necessary licenses and approvals for the use of groundwater resources, the drilling exercise and completion of the boreholes and the installation of a Reverse Osmosis membrane treatment unit. This includes pre and post treatment steps, storage of water, and disinfection and pumping facilities. The alternative water supply is integrated in the existing piping network and ensures the desired flexibility and continuity in the water supply for our customers (see photo: Containerized RO-unit)
Currently Aquest Colsen is involved in the execution of multiple projects related to the purification of municipal waste water or in the supply of alternative water sources for our customer base in South Africa, in accordance with industry standards.
