Abstract: Water and wastewater treatment activities, projects and capabilities of South African environmental engineering specialist Envig are detailed. The company, as part of the Weir Wesgarth Consortium, has pre-qualified for the major Namibian Water Supply Project, one of the largest of its kind to date in southern Africa. This project involves the desalination of seawater to meet increasing water demand and shortfalls. Envig, if awarded the contract, would be involved in construction of three or four reverse osmosis or mechanical vapour compression sea water desalination plants and associated infrastructure. The company is also involved in a mine water desalination project at the Eskom Tutuka Power Station. A reverse osmosis plant using low fouling maintenance is being installed to deal with acid mine drainage water. Details of the design and operation of this plant are given.
