Package Plants

Package plants from Veolia Water Technologies South Africa (Veolia) are also known as modular systems or modular treatment. They are used by companies in South Africa and Africa for industrial water treatment and municipalities make use of them at remote sites for potable, and other, water that their conventional infrastructure does not reach. Veolia provides the necessary chemicals for your application requirements, industrial or municipal.

These modular systems take up less space than conventional water plants and contain very few moving parts. The result is an efficient, highly reliable and affordable potable water treatment plant or wastewater treatment plant with low maintenance requirements and low operating costs.

Veolia package plants processes and benefits

We use processes such as clarification, sand filtration, carbon filtration, reverse osmosis, ion exchange, softening, activated sludge and bio-disk in our package plants – depending on site requirements and other factors unique to each application.

Package plants from Veolia provide numerous benefits. Some of these are:

  • Ideal for remote locations
  • Lower day-to-day maintenance and simple operation
  • Cost-effective alternative to "in-ground" treatment plants
  • Transportable to practically anywhere

Cost-saving engineering, installation, operation and maintenance

  • Package plants arrive on site almost ready to operate due to their "plug-and-play" nature. This minimises the need for installation periods.
  • Package plants can also be used in combination to form a complete water treatment plant. Package plants are compact, cost-effective, can be easily operated and are designed for minimal operational supervision.
  • Package plants are easily transported to difficult-to-access locations due to their compact and containerised design. This, in addition to the use of robust technologies, ease of installation and commissioning, makes it an ideal solution for deployment in Africa where cities and villages are widespread and there is a lack of a comprehensive transport infrastructure.

Recently completed projects include a package drinking water plant in Zambia with a 2 500 m³ per day capacity and a sewage treatment plant in Pietermaritzburg for a population of 500.
