WATER AND SANITATION

 

 

SOUTH AFRICA IS A WATER SCARCE COUNTRY WITH FREQUENT SEVERE DROUGHTS

 

iX engineers is well equipped to provide solutions to the challenges of the present and future. Our skills and experience combine to deliver well planned and cost-effective infrastructure and environmentally sensitive solutions.

 

We apply our expertise in the fields of Water Resources, Water Quality and Water Treatment Processes to identify potential sources of water and match these with demands to develop reliable and sustainable solutions.

 

Imagine a future where we are able to proactively maintain all our water equipment using the (IOT) Internet of Things, reducing downtime of our most vital resources. Imagine a future where we are able to completely eradicate water shortages. This future is not that far away. INTERESTED? Come and chat to us.

 

iX engineers specialises in providing integrated solutions for the management of water treatment systems by incorporating the Internet of Things (IOT) which allows operators to monitor the functioning of the works real-time, resulting in early detection of problems.

Waste Water Re-Use

Water Crisis Waste Water Re-Use

iX engineers has significant experience in Waste Water Re-use technology, which includes the provision of consulting engineering, project management and business/project services. Our in-house Professionals provide the best sustainable solutions to our customers and the environment over the full life cycle of the asset. iX engineers also has the capability and experience to provide solutions for Acid Mine Drainage.

 

Desalination

iX engineers’ knowledge of Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) Desalination plants was demonstrated with the City of Cape Town’s Emergency Water Resilience Project during the City’s worst drought recorded in history.

 

A major part of this project was to investigate and implement temporary Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) Desalination plants as emergency measures, with a larger (long term) permanent SWRO plant to be planned for implementation at a later stage.

The following three temporary SWRO plants were constructed and successfully implemented for the City of Cape Town:

  • Monwabisi (7 Mℓ/d) commissioned in June 2018

  • Strandfontein (7 Mℓ/d) commissioned in May 2018

  • V&A Waterfront (2 Mℓ/d) commissioned in May 2018

 

Water Conservation & Non-Revenue Water

Conservation and Water Demand Management (WC/WDM) measures to reduce non-revenue water and water losses for water distribution systems. Our staff have the necessary expertise and experience to advise clients on which interventions are the most appropriate to a specific area and how best to implement them.

 

The most common mistake made by many institutions/municipalities throughout the world is to believe that water loss reduction is achieved through only leak detection and repair. In such cases, large budgets are often used to search for unreported leaks using the latest hi-tech and expensive equipment. If the water losses are due to inaccurate metering or even background leakage, the leak detection activities will yield little or no results.

 

Potential Savings:

A breakdown of the 2015/16 water balance for Municipalities in South Africa indicates a potential real loss saving of 939 million m3/annum and a potential income of 197 million M3/annum which is currently unbilled.

 

Most WC/WDM activities will pay for themselves and financial institutions will fund these projects if a proper business case can be compiled. iX engineers also has the capacity and capability to assist in this regard, including revenue enhancement programmes.

 

Supply systems can be monitored and controlled via remote access using computers, mobile phones or tablets displaying real-time data of:

  • Quality

  • Flow Rates

  • Reservoir Levels

  • Pump Station Activities

  • System Pressure

  • Possible Leaks

  • Water Consumption and Water Balance

PROJECTS

  • Cape Flats Aquifer

  • Assmang’s Khumani Mine Water Resource Augmentation

  • New N2 Gateway Delft Bulk Sewer

  • Mokolo and Crocodile River (West) Augmentation (Phase 1)

  • Lanseria 20 Mℓ Reservoir and 1,2 Mℓ Tower
