Design

Our experience is fully incorporated into our designs to deliver a robust solution that will work in the most trying of circumstances. An intimate knowledge of our client requirements, associated equipment and processes enables our team to design solutions that deliver maximum performance across Africa.

Through integration with and a formal feedback loop from our Operations Team - who advise and manage water, wastewater treatment and associated utilities plants on a full-outsourced and remote technical support basis – we understand what works well and where there are opportunities for continuous improvement.

We fully integrate all aspects of engineering design services including Process, Chemical, Electrical and Process Control, Mechanical, Structural and Civil to into our solutions, and ensure that our solutions fully integrate with the larger project and/or plant.

 
Turnkey WTP and WWTP (EPC)

Our EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management) services provide our clients with the surety of a team which has Project Management experience across Africa, by providing full management services for the project on behalf of the client. In doing so, we lead all of the design, procurement and construction work, as well as ensure that the whole project is completed against the triangle of project deliverables.

 
Specialised Wastewater Treatment Solutions

Specialised water and /or waste water solutions require specific knowledge of technologies and/or its application within often a very specific context. Through 29 years of experience in the water and wastewater treatment arena and collaboration with key technology suppliers, we have built specialist capacity to provide solutions for:

  • Desalination
  • Leachate Treatment
  • Acid Mine Drainage Solutions
  • Yeast Thermolisation
  • Sewage Treatment
  • Solids Handling
  • Boilers and Gas Engines
 
Package Solutions

Package plants are self-contained units that can be containerised or skid mounted. These plants are best suited to situations where quick delivery, isolated operation, or operation with minimal human interface is required.

We custom design and build all package plants, assuring that client-specific needs are met and avoiding the one-size-fits-all approach. Our turnaround time on delivery is short and site installation time is limited through plug-and-play installation.

 
Project and Construction Management

Our EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management) services provide our clients with the surety of a team which has Project Management experience across Africa, by providing full management services for the project on behalf of the client. In doing so, we lead all of the design, procurement and construction work, as well as ensure that the whole project is completed against the triangle of project deliverables.

 
Plant Optimisation and Refurbishment

With capability to deliver on the entire project continuum as well as client asset operation and management, we are well-placed to support our clients in plant optimisation and refurbishments. Over time, the operating environment, plant condition, and processing dynamics may change or drift. Client-oriented optimisation ensures effective management of operational costs, whilst maintaining plant durability.

Where refurbishment of outdated or beyond-reasonable-life equipment is required, we will, in partnership with our clients, develop the solution that best suits their business strategy, asset management mechanisms, product and process development, and investment plans. Whether it’s a replacement, expansion, or total refurbishment, we deliver short implementation times, seamless integration into existing infrastructure, and a solution aligned to site investment strategy.

 
Water and Energy Recovery

Security of water supply remains a challenge within the Africa context and recovery of high-quality water from wastewater streams serves as an alternative water resource.

Through water recovery from wastewater streams and utilisation of biogas, we have assisted numerous clients to deliver on sustainability drives and reduce their demand on local water resources and fossil fuels. Our robust solutions are proven with many references in a number of African countries.

Furthermore, wastewater treatment through anaerobic digestion creates biogas (an energy rich mixture of methane and carbon dioxide) which can be utilised to generate electricity or create steam through boiler or gas-engine application, thus reducing fossil fuel demand.

 
Commercial Management

Each project is unique, and its success is dependent on a high level of commercial and technical management expertise. Our team has a wealth of experience in dealing with contract documentation, company and project finance, and associated legal matters. Our projects take into account all key aspects: construction costs, compliance with deadlines, quality, value engineering, whole life cycle costs, risk exposure, post-construction services and functional warranties.

 
Procurement and Logistics Management

Our procurement and logistics team is responsible for managing purchasing activities through Invitations to Bid, Requests for Proposal, Requests for Quotation and contract negotiations with our various suppliers and sub-contractors. Further, our team ensures the timeous delivery of equipment to site to ensure a successful project outcome for our client.

 
Health and Safety

Safety is a key priority on our projects. On all projects, we ensure compliance with the requirements of local legislation, and where this is lacking with the South African Health and Safety Act (No. 85 of 1993), which is seen as a benchmark on the continent, as a minimum. Where relevant we will also apply our clients’ standards to the work that we do.

We conduct risk assessments for our projects and associated activities and prepare a project-specific Health and Safety file which will refer to all policies and procedures, key performance indicators and will include a project health and safety plan as well as task-specific assessments, mitigations and plans for use and reference on site. Regular internal audits are carried out during the life of the project to assess and ensure performance.
