The Mossel Bay desalination plant – South Africa’s largest seawater desalination plant


Veolia Water Technologies designed, built and installed a 15 megalitre per day seawater desalination plant in Mossel Bay, with water supplied via an open sea water intake. Desalinated water is stored in two tanks –5 megalitres per day for Petro SA industrial use, and 10 megalitres per day, which is chemically treated to kill bacteria and balance ph for municipal use.




Durban Water Recycling Plant 

Veolia’s flagship municipal wastewater treatment plant in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal reclaims water at a rate of 47.5 megalitres per day, reducing the amount of municipal wastewater discharged into the environment. Domestic and industrial sewage and municipal wastewater is treated to near potable standards for use in industrial processes by high volume industrial customers.
