• COVID-19 travel restrictions made it challenging for project managers to visit the site
• July 2021 Civil Unrest in KwaZulu-Natal made it challenging for MEB personnel to visit the site, the plant was monitored and operated remotely
• South Africa power shortage i.e the plant operation being affected by load-shedding
In South Africa, there’s a growing demand for clean water, however local water supplies are diminishing as a result of climate change, population growth, drought and economic growth.
In some regions, water is completely unavailable. To address this issue, South African municipalities are considering ways to make the most of their precious water resources.
One attractive solution to the water shortage is to treat and reuse wastewater.
MEB installed an Aspiral™ plant in KwaZulu-Natal. The Aspiral™ achieve high removal rates resulting in very high effluent quality and the systems can easily be designed to allow even higher effluent quality if required.
The packaged plant was seamlessly installed with remote support due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
In the second phase of the project , additional post-treatment will be added to bring the effluent to full potabilization, so residents can safely drink the water.
