Water Treatment Rental Fleet – A Solid, Viable Solution for a Fluid World

Rental Fleet

South African water-reliant industries and remote communities and sites rely heavily on water treatment and wastewater management systems to meet compliance standards and ensure clean water. However, what happens during water shortages, maintenance and outage schedules, disease outbreaks, or emergencies where the existing plant has failed? The solution: rent a fit-for-purpose water treatment fleet that includes daily operations management and ongoing maintenance.

Smart, fit-for-purpose water treatment solutions

At the forefront of innovation in the water sector—NuWater is a technology-led company with the most comprehensive water treatment rental fleet in South Africa. We deliver projects across the entire water cycle that balances social, economic and environmental priorities. Pushing technology forward to improve water management systems, we address South Africa’s water-energy nexus while always maintaining energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Rental solutions to bridge the gap

As a result of our economy, large infrastructure wastewater management systems are expensive, inflexible, and often take too long to deliver. NuWater understands the large capital outlay and risks involved in purchasing and believe that asset rental is a winning alternative to high upfront costs. With no unforeseen maintenance costs and no long-term commitment, our water treatment rentals reduce operational costs and downtime, protect assets, and run a more financially stable business while leaving the water part of business to industry specialists.


Fast, viable response to urgent needs

Disruption always happens, and when it does, operations shut down. Interruption can mean defective equipment or controls, change of raw water supply, disease outbreaks, dewatering of mining pits and evaporation ponds, short-term peak power demands, seasonal water shortages, emergency water on remote sites, or maintenance downtime. Having a plan in place is crucial, and our rental fleets help water-reliant industries respond quickly and effectively in times of crisis.

Defined as ‘the capability of delivering products or services following a disruptive incident’, business continuity is what our water treatment rental fleet provides. A NuWater rental ensures a temporary to long-term water treatment solution that can sustain a continuous supply of treated water for any emergency scenario. However, as industry water needs have changed, so has the standard, decade-old mobile water plant.

Integrated high-tech prepackaged water solutions on a trailer

Now more than ever, there is a demand for technologies like clarification, filtration, ultrafiltration, and reverse osmosis. For that reason, single compact mobile plants have become two-to-three container trailers with several technologies that work in sequence. For instance, the first trailer can require a multi-media filtration pretreatment. The second trailer can require reverse osmosis, followed by mixed bed ion-exchange polishing in the third trailer. 

NuWater is the market leaders in water treatment technologies and rentals, and our single or integrated —ready-to-run solutions consist of up to three containers or skid-mounted systems prepackaged on a trailer, with ‘plug-and-play’ connections for quick and easy use. We provide a water treatment rental with a support team of electrical and process engineers to ensure plants run efficiently and economically.

We run the plant while you take care of your business.

NuWater looks after the water-side of business so clients can focus on the core running of their business. That means we take care of everything—from the delivery, installation, daily operations, maintenance, and support to the running costs. Keeping maintenance proactive instead of reactive, our engineers use the latest tech advancements, ensuring efficiency and preventing malfunctioning equipment. We also supply the chemicals and consumables, and technicians monitor the plant daily with remote logging to ensure maximum up-time and optimization. 

Ordering, delivery and installation are easy

A water treatment rental fleet is a far more cost-effective and flexible alternative solution, and South African businesses and remote sites have much to gain from its adoption. Further, getting set up with a water treatment rental is easy. All we request is your water treatment requirements, rental duration, and a feedwater analysis. After an evaluation, our engineers select a fit-for-purpose rental solution, with delivery within 1-3 weeks and an additional two weeks to install and commission.

South African water-reliant industries can no longer isolate their water challenges from mobile water treatment rentals. A plant rental is affordable, easy to use, and energy-efficient with easy integration into other plant systems. They demand zero additional installation or monthly maintenance costs, set-up time is fast, and they are expandable for future growth.

Water Plant Installation


Besides our comprehensive, flexible fleet that delivers plant rentals to your site, wherever and whenever, short- or longer-term, we offer our water and wastewater treatment expertise that comes from decades of experience. That experience, paired with our passion for bringing clean water to remote villages, communities and industries throughout South Africa and Africa, means we are uniquely qualified to develop a fit-for-purpose water treatment rental fleet for your specific needs.
