Ensuring uninterrupted water supply - vital for daily operation and business growth
Industry leaders have identified water supply security as a key economic risk factor – ahead of energy supply security. However, rapid urbanisation and industrial development often out-strip municipal infrastructure and challenge resources. A lack of water supply poses a major challenge for business growth and daily operation in the manufacturing sector, impacting the bottom line and the economy as a whole.
SBS® has partnered with various corporates within the manufacturing, food and beverage and the commercial and residential property sectors over the past 20+ years, providing water storage solutions for backup water supply.
From back-up storage off mainline water supply to rainwater harvesting, to the processing and storage of recycled water for operational requirements
The modular nature, built from ground up, requires limited footprint for installation
Can be easily dismantled and relocated
From 12kL to 3300 kL, suitable for small to large commercial enterprises
SBS® offers a wide range of water and liquid storage solutions to meet the diverse and exacting needs of the mining, municipal, fire protection, commercial and agricultural sectors, with a focus on working to develop comprehensive solutions that address the need for water conservation.
SBS® is situated in the same industrial park as the KZN Distribution Centre for a high quality, national food, and clothing chain. The distribution centre is responsible for the delivery of dry and frozen food goods to stores within the Durban and KwaZulu-Natal region.
Expansion of a packaging and manufacturing operation in Gauteng, South Africa, necessitated the installation of effluent water tanks. The company required tanks to house the untreated wastewater following the washing of printed ink logos and company details off recycled paper and cardboard, to be used as raw materials in the production of new product. The SBS® team worked with the client’s engineers to design the most effective effluent water storage system for the site.
SBS® is no stranger to the Mozambican Port of Beira having previously worked alongside consulting engineers in a bid to upgrade the water storage capabilities for potable and processing water and for fire protection reservoirs. Situated on the east coast of Africa, Mozambique averages about 1.5 tropical cyclones a year, and although not often higher than Category 2, these typically cause widespread damage.
Don’t let the cost or lack of municipal water supply cripple the production or profitability of your business operations. CHEP, suppliers of high-quality pallets and containers, contacted SBS® to design a system to harvest and store rainwater at their Cornubia, KZN site. SBS® devised a compact system to accommodate the limited space available leaving CHEP able to keep operations running for two and a half weeks, even if municipal supply is disrupted.
