you need a water softener,
water filtration system,

or water purifier system,
Veolia will help you achieve your water requirements

From small-scale, temporary mobile plants to full-scale large plant builds, Veolia supplies the A to Z of water treatment solutions, tailored to your unique requirements:

Design & Build | Large-scale civil plants

Veolia designs, installs and commissions large-scale custom-engineered water and wastewater treatment plants as a turnkey solution through our Design & Build division.

Veolia is the water treatment company behind some of southern Africa’s most important water purification plants, including:

  • The Mossel Bay Desalination Plant, the largest desalination plant in South Africa. Using reverse osmosis water treatment, the plant treats up to 15 Ml/day.
  • The Goreangab Water Reclamation Plant in Windhoek, Namibia. The largest plant of its type in the world, it treats wastewater and semi-purified sewage to a potable standard to supply 21 Ml/day of purified water to the city.
  • The landmark Durban Water Recycling Plant, which treats sewage and industrial wastewater to near potable standards, supplying 47.5 Ml/day to high volume industrial customers.
  • In an example of harvesting high-value resources from wastewater treatment technologies, the award-winning crystalliser plant at Ambatovy Mine in Madagascar dries up to 210 000 tons of ammonium sulphate per year, which it sells as a high-quality agricultural fertiliser.

Engineered Systems | Plug-and-play containerised plants

Containerised plants are proving increasingly desirable water treatment solutions, and include containerised potable water treatment plants, containerised sewage treatment plants as well as mobile (truck-mounted) plants.

These scalable, flexible ‘packaged plant’ solutions can be fabricated with quick turnaround times through our local manufacturing facilities in Johannesburg, and thus are ideal in responding to urgent, critical water challenges.

They can be fabricated for any treatment application, and can be added to, adapted and redeployed as water treatment requirements shift. A package water treatment plant is an ideal option for short-term / temporary water treatment solutions.

Veolia is also introducing a new standard products range, a portfolio of packaged solutions of specific, adapted Veolia products and technologies for specific market bases in Africa. These include treatment solutions for municipal drinking water and wastewater, industrial process water and wastewater, agriculture, aquaculture, power generation, mining, pharmaceutical and food and beverage. The standard product range is just the latest additions to a culture of innovation that makes Veolia a leading water treatment company in South Africa.

Making sure you have the best water treatment system in place will help you drive down operational costs and improve availability!

As a total water treatment company, our approach focuses maximising efficiency across the water treatment cycle; ensuring availability; and mitigating the risk of costly water disruptions, based on a holistic understanding of the role of water in your operation.

For industry, this considers what bottom-line costs would be in the event of an interruption to production, either because of feed water problems that cause plant processes to shut down, or, in terms of discharge issues that may contravene environmental regulations and force a shutdown.

Veolia Water Technologies is one of the top water
treatment companies in South Africa offering the full range of water
purification systems, including industrial water treatment systems and
municipal water treatment.

Solutions might range from re-evaluating operations and maintenance, expanding existing infrastructure, or looking internally at how water can be reused or used more efficiently.

For municipal water treatment companies and utility boards, Veolia can help alleviate strained, overburdened infrastructure by ensuring treatment equipment and processes are optimised for maximum efficiency, safety and performance and reduced environmental impact. This means increased wellbeing for our communities while protecting our natural heritage.

Veolia can help water authorities and municipalities prevent risk rather than react to it through costly mega builds that seek an exponential capacity supply in a short space of time
