Veolia Water Unit to Refurbish Desalination Plant in Namibia

Aqua Services and Engineering, a unit of Veolia Water Solutions, will refurbish a seawater desalination plant and boost potable water supplies in Walvis Bay, where water scarcity has long been an issue.

Veolia Water is a division of Paris-based Veolia Environnement SA (VIE), the largest water utility. The ASE unit will install an energy recovery system to the reverse osmosis membrane system to help the Namibia plant optimize power consumption and adapt an air flotation filtration design, it said in a statement. No terms for the contract were disclosed.

The plant should be operational in five to six months.
