Desalination is becoming an increasingly important technology in Southern Africa due to a growing awareness of water scarcity in the region. South Africa especially, is vulnerable to droughts, and many municipalities are experiencing water shortages. Desalination offers a solution to this problem, as it can produce fresh drinking water from seawater.

In Southern Africa there is a range of desalination technologies used, such as reverse osmosis and thermal distillation, to produce fresh drinking water from seawater. While desalination offers a potential solution to water scarcity, there is a wide spread misconception of it being expensive technology, and many countries in the region tend to be more careful with the adoption of reverse osmosis systems. In addition, in the midst of an energy crisis, desalination plants require large amounts of energy to operate, which can make them less sustainable – even that is a misconception in the fact that renewable energy is a viable and reliable source to power desalination plants.

MEB is a multidisciplinary turnkey solutions company and we specialise in overseeing the design, procurement, and construction of a project, ensuring that it is completed on time, within budget, and to the required quality standards. In the water and energy sector, a good EPC project management partner is critical to ensuring that projects are energy-efficient and implemented sustainability.

Energy-efficiency is a critical consideration in water project development and the energy sector. By prioritizing energy-efficiency in the design and construction of projects, we can reduce the environmental impact of the project and promote its sustainability through the entire value chain. Energy-efficient projects also have the potential to reduce operating costs over the long term, making them more financially sustainable.
