Veolia supplies trickling filter technology to Mpumalanga’s Ngwenya Lodge

Veolia’s trickling filter system technology

 Veolia Water Technologies South Africa supplied a 400 m³/day civil-based sewage treatment plant which utilises trickling filter technology to treat sewage water at the Ngwenya Lodge in Komatipoort, Mpumalanga.

 Situated on the southern boundary of the Kruger National Park, Ngwenya Lodge requested Veolia Water Technologies to supply a new waste water treatment solution to cater for the needs of the resort.

“Our sewage treatment plants and trickling filter technology treat sewage to RSA General Standards for Discharge”, says Veolia Water Technologies’ Business Development Manager, Vashlin Govender. “Just a single package plant can treat domestic sewage for up to 4,000 residents”. Veolia's civil-based sewage treatment plants are easy to install and commission, making them ideal for remote locations. The technology is simple so automation and control requirements can be kept to a minimum, allowing for a reliable and robust solution which requires no skilled operators to operate the plant.

 South Africa is becoming a global leader in eco-tourism. Veolia’s fully containerised sewage treatment plants with trickling filter technology are rapidly becoming vital for the African tourism industry. Trickling filter technology can accommodate large fluctuations in quality and volume of inflow, including shock loads. The system also reduces sludge production to approximately a third of its original volume.

Trickling filter plants are compact, reduce odour, improve water colour and can be designed to meet client specific discharge requirements. In addition to being more affordable and robust, this technology is simple and reliable, requires minimal maintenance and lower energy input, allows flexibility of effluent load, and systems recover faster after power outages.

  Veolia Water Technologies is the only company in Southern Africa with the technology to design and engineer industrial-sized trickling filter plants.
