Eskom’s Koeberg nuclear power station today turned on its temporary mobile groundwater desalination plant, which will ease the pressure on the City of Cape Town’s water supply. “When the City of Cape Town called on the people of the Western Cape to address the water issue, we had to respond with a sustainable solution as a responsible corporate citizen,” Velaphi Ntuli, Koeberg Power Station manager said. Ntuli explained: “The desalination plant is part of Koeberg’s three-pronged water management strategy to address the current water shortages in the Western Cape while ensuring that the plant is able to provide safe […]
A considerable amount of potable water in northern and southern coastal towns is provided by water desalination units, the deputy head of the National Water and Wastewater Engineering Company said. “Some 55 desalination facilities, with a capacity of producing 129,000 cubic meters of water per day, supply water for consumption or irrigation to regions straddling the northern and southern coasts of Iran,” Ali Asghar Qaneh was also quoted as saying by IRNA on Wednesday. According to the official, the units, completed at an estimated cost of $170 million, have been up and running since 2016. “Plans are in place […]
In response to this, Eskom has decided to install a groundwater desalination plant at Koeberg nuclear power station. This process entails removing salts and other contaminants from groundwater to make it suitable for human consumption. In this instance, groundwater from the aquarium located near to the power station will be desalinated for use at Koeberg nuclear power station for its daily needs.
The objective of this project is to reduce Koeberg’s dependency on, and consumption of municipal water supplied by the City of Cape Town. This effort contributes to the city’s goal, which is to reduce water […]
