Sewtreat, a leading provider of water management solutions, has successfully completed two groundbreaking projects at Pick n Pay's Eastport Logistics Park. The projects involved the implementation of innovative rainwater harvesting and biological water treatment systems, resulting in significant cost savings and impressive payback periods.
Rainwater Harvesting and Treatment System
Sewtreat's rainwater harvesting system collects and treats 300 000 litres of rainwater for use in the cooling plant. The system includes a 3 000 000-liter dam for ample rainwater collection, a 1 000 000-liter underground sump for clean and safe water storage, and sustainable water utilisation for the cooling plant. By utilising rainwater, Pick n Pay minimizes dependence on expensive municipal water sources, promotes responsible water management, and contributes to environmental conservation. The system saves over R2 500 000 annually and has a payback period of only 22 months.
Biological Water Treatment System
Sewtreat's biological water treatment system processes and reuses over 150,000 liters of wastewater from the on-site truck wash bay. With a state-of-the-art biological water treatment plant, the system ensures effective treatment and purification, and the treated wash bay water can be reused on-site, minimizing water consumption. The system optimizes wastewater treatment, reduces environmental impact, and adheres to regulatory requirements. The system saves over R2 200 000 annually and has a payback period of only 14 months.
Ongoing Operation and Maintenance
Sewtreat provides comprehensive operation and maintenance services for the implemented systems, ensuring long-term efficiency and reliability. The company continuously monitors and optimizes the performance of the systems, and its team of experienced professionals provides reliable support whenever needed.
