WEC Projects, a local EPC contractor specialising in water and wastewater treatment solutions, will soon complete the installation of a new WEC Model B packaged sewage treatment plant at the Mothae Diamond Mine located in the Maluti Mountains 214kms from Maseru, Lesotho. The mine is 70% owned by Lucapa Diamond Company and 30% by the Government of Lesotho.
WEC Projects, a local EPC water and wastewater treatment contractor, has secured its first commercial order for the NEWgenerator™ sanitation system. The unique system, designed by a team of engineers at the University of South Florida (USF) in the USA and built under licence in South Africa by WEC Projects, provides proper sewage treatment for use in areas where infrastructure is lacking, making it ideal for communities which rely on conventional solutions such as pit or portable toilets. In addition, the design of the system allows for the recycling of the water used for toilet flushing as well as the utilisation of the biogas produced during the treatment process.
