Nature Lodge in Mpumalanga

Veolia supplied a 400 m³/day civil-based sewage treatment plant which utilises trickling filter technology to treat sewage water at a Nature Lodge in Komatipoort, Mpumalanga, situated on the southern boundary of the Kruger National Park.

Nature Reserve in Bela Bela, Limpopo

Veolia supplied a 200 m³/day civil based sewage treatment plant which utilises trickling filter technology to treat sewage at a Nature Reserve in Bela Bela, Limpopo. Their passion is for nature and Veolia provided a sewage solution that is reliable, robust and perfect for SA eco-tourism.

Water treatment solutions for Mbombela

Veolia was contracted to alleviate Mbombela’s water constraints with three new water treatment plants. Addressing the need for low-footprint, portable and easily maintained water treatment solutions, Veolia supplied three Potable Water Treatment Plants (PWTP™) to Mpumalanga’s capital city.

Supplying potable water to Makoko Village

In the first project Veolia installed a packaged PTWP™ to the Makoko Village; a remote village situated 30 minutes from the city that does not have enough potable water for its community’s needs. The PTWP™ is equipped with clarification and sand filter technologies to treat 0.75 megalitres of potable water per day.

Upgrading Mshadza Water Treatment Plant

The second project saw Veolia upgrading the existing Water Treatment Plant at the Mshadza Village, another remote village outside the city of Mbombela. The existing 30-year old Water Treatment Plant utilised older technologies that made it unable to meet the village’s growing potable water demands. In this installation, raw water was diverted from the old plant to Veolia’s new packaged PTWP™ where it used clarification, sand filtration and carbon filtration technologies to treat one megalitre of potable water per day.

Containerised solution for White River Country Estate

Similar to the Mshadza installation, albeit on a smaller scale, Mbombela’s White River Country Estate had an existing water treatment plant that was unable to meet growing demands due to its older systems and technologies. Veolia supplied a containerised water treatment plant that will treat 58 m³/hr of potable water for the Estate. It features clarification, sand filtration and carbon filtration technologies – all packaged into two containers next to the old plant.

Veolia’s water techno plants are movable and can be easily transported.

Water Solutions

Globally, recycling, conservation, and environmental initiatives are top of mind. Consumers want to know where their waste goes, and how businesses are conserving and supporting their environments.

Responsible tourism is not just a box to tick. Water scarcity is a reality and, with the eyes of the world on us, now is the time for innovation.

We enable the South African tourism industry to make responsible tourism:

  • Water Reuse:
    Veolia treats even the dirtiest wastewater to potable water and ultrapure standards, while harvesting valuable by-products in wastewater streams to help customers move towards zero liquid discharge.
  • Wastewater Recycling:
    Wastewater recycling helps customers optimise water costs and minimise their environmental footprint. Veolia has proven expertise across some of Africa’s most important wastewater recycling plants.
  • Water Scarcity:
    Water scarcity is the lack of fresh water resources to meet water demand. It was listed in 2019 by the World Economic Forum as one of the largest global. Veolia offers solutions especially suited to the Tourism and Real Estate development sectors.

Our Water Techno Packages are ideal in a world where water recycling, reuse and conservation are top of mind.
