Working together with Dow Bon Accord, a local village enjoys safe drinking water.

Child drinking clean water

THE CHALLENGE

Dow Bon Accord needed to provide potable water to inhabitants of a local South African village. The nearest water source to the settlement was an irrigation canal, which was fed from a neighbouring dam.

OUR SOLUTION

In order to achieve the client’s goals quickly and cost effectively, PROXA designed, commissioned and installed a packaged treatment plant.

HOW PROXA ADDED VALUE

PROXA took care of the design, civils and electrical works and installed the plant on-site without interrupting existing supply.
