Africa’s first sea water solar desalination plant



Africa’s first sea water solar desalination plant has now produced more than 10 000 kl of drinkable water. The plant, located in Witsand in the Western Cape, has been fully operational since 20 December 2018, solving the water crisis in the area and providing the local population a steady water supply, especially over the Christmas period.

The project, co-funded by the French Treasury and the Province of the Western Cape, has been fully developed and completed in less than 18 months by Turnkey Water Solutions (TWS) and Mascara Renewable Water, together with a strong team of local consultants and contractors. The Osmosum plant, designed by Mascara, is currently producing an average of 150 kl of drinkable water per day, two-thirds of the production from solar energy only and at a very competitive price.
