The world’s first full-scale seawater desalination plant

South Africa’s biggest power generator is a giant consumer of freshwater and accounts for 1.5% of the country’s total water consumption annually.

In order to help the power companies reclaim and reuse wastewater, NuWater designed, built and operated the world’s first full-scale seawater desalination plant. We used our high performing patented cutting-edge seawater Reverse Osmosis membrane technology. This set new benchmarks in performance, productivity, and reliability globally.
