South Africa tank manufacturer SBS Tanks has supplied water treatment tanks to water service provider Sembcorp Siza Water.
Based in Ballito, north of Durban, in KwaZulu-Natal, the treatment facility handles 27.3 Mℓ/d of water and uses high-quality biotechnology to treat the sewage and effluent.
Sembcorp Siza Water recycles most of the region’s wastewater into drinkable water that achieves “Blue Drop Status”, the regulatory tool used by the Department of Water Affairs to monitor Drink Water Quality.
Following a major upgrade, the facility needed new water reservoirs installed urgently. SBS Tanks was able to provide a temporary one-million litre storage tank within four days. Eight weeks later, the company install one 3.3-million litre water storage tank and one 2-million litre storage tank that would store the recycled and treated potable water. The installed tanks meet global industry standards and the highest international trade quality ratings.
According to Fabio Grendele Operations Manager, projects like these make SBS Tanks such a significant player in the water storage industry, not only in sub-Saharan Africa but also across the world.
The company has been accredited with SABS and international accrediting agencies. Additionally, SBS Tanks exports its zincalume panel tanks to the US, Central America, Dubai, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Singapore, among others.
