Cape Town finalises new desalination plant project

With the Cape Town area suffering from one of the worst droughts in its history, tank manufacturer and supplier SBS Tanks marketing manager James Preston tells Engineering News that the City of Cape Town municipality has launched several alternative water source projects to mitigate the drought’s effects.

SBS Tanks has recently contributed to one such project. The project saw SBS Tanks partnering with filtration and water treatment equipment supplier Quality Filtration Systems, as well as water treatment systemsservices and solutions provider Osmoflo, to provide a mass water storage solution for the area in a short period.

The group partnered on the construction and installation of a new emergency desalination plant at the V&A Waterfront. The new desalination plant will have the capacity to provide two-million litres of fresh water a day for local residents.
