QFS have secured the contract to provide an emergency desalination plant for the Victoria & Alfred (V&A) Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa.
The desalination plant will address the increasing water demands of the City of Cape Town region.
The desalination project will involve the supply, installation and commissioning of a fully containerised 2 MLD seawater reverse osmosis and multimedia filtration plant. This will be delivered under a rental contract to the City of Cape Town for a minimum duration of 24 months. With a tight completion schedule, the plant is scheduled to be operational by March 2018.
QFS have been following the City of Cape Town’s need to augment severely restricted potable water supplies and the collaboration of QFS and Osmoflo with this project will help to bring fast relief to the severe water shortages in the area.
Herman Smit, Managing Director of QFS, comments “The V&A Waterfront desalination project feels like the culmination of years of promoting membrane equipment for the treatment of potable and waste water. It is satisfying to use our 21 years of experience to contribute to the Cape Town augmentation program for some relief during the drought.”
