WEC Projects begins commissioning on the highly anticipated Hartebeestfontein Nereda Plant

The Nereda Cycle

WEC Projects is the exclusive licensee for the exciting and proven Nereda technology for wastewater treatment. The WEC Projects team excited at the prospect of starting the commissioning of the 5MLD expansion plant that was retrofitted into existing tank infrastructure on the Hartebeestfontein main plant. The existing tanks were made redundant after the main plant was reconfigured by the client some years back.

WEC Projects started with the testing of the fine bubble diffusers last week after many months of delays outside of the control of the WEC Projects team, including a challenges with power delivery.

Nereda is a compelling proposition for municipal clients for sewage treatment. Nereda provides the following benefits:

  • Up to 75% reduction in footprint
  • Much reduced CAPEX and OPEX and therefore a massive reduction in total plant life cycle costs
  • Full nutrient removal
  • Nereda is easy to operate and a proven technology.
