Overall Winner 2015

To secure the Greater Hermanus water supply requirements, while protecting against future droughts, the Aurecon team designed an innovative biofiltration plant, the first full-scale water treatment plant of its kind in South Africa for the natural removal of iron and manganese.

Exceptional attention to plant design, construction and finishing, plus innovative environmental protection solutions delivered a facility that will cater for the growing water demand of the area well into the future, especially during peak season.
