PLANT Operations
& Management

Our clients desire is to concentrate on their core business e.g. mining, and in many instances, choose to outsource the building, operation and maintenance of any water-treatment plants they may already have or plan to build.

These include thickeners/settlers, and potable and waste water plants in both underground and surface applications. Watercare Mining has a proven track record with and specialize in, the building, operating and maintenance of such plants – employing a variety of models ranging from an outright purchase to a Build-Own-Maintain (BOM) or Build-Own-Operate (BOO) model. These options are discussed with the client to suit their individual needs.

Plant Operations and Management

In the changing economic environments, our clients need to focus on their core business. The core business focus combined with the shortage of skilled and experienced personnel in the water sector, led Watercare Mining to establish an operating division, Watercare Urban.  Watercare Urban focus on the operations and maintenance of water treatment plants by deploying trained and qualified operating and maintenance personnel to client facilities.

These include thickeners/settlers, potable and waste water plants in both underground and surface applications. We have a strong, multi-disciplined engineering team that is responsible for the design of new plants and lends support to the operations and management team in the areas of chemical, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation engineering.

We have a proven track record with and specialize in, the building, operating and maintenance of such plants – employing a variety of financial models ranging from an outright purchase to a Build-Own-Maintain (BOM) or Build-Own-Operate (BOO) model. These options are negotiated with the client to suit their needs, and form a very important part of our business model.  We have also taken over existing plants which were poorly managed, poorly maintained and did not deliver of the initial design criteria and turned these plants around to be productive.

At present Watercare Urban operates a variety of  water treatment plant for clients producing 30 MLD SANS compliant potable water and 40 MLD of AMD treated water.

Spares supply for our units is guaranteed and Watercare Mining is one of
very few companies to offer remuneration linked to plant performance, a
risk-reward system that underlines the faith we have in our products and
services
