Follows successful upgrade at Kruger National Park for South Africa National Parks at the Skukuza Rest Camp.

Following the successful installation in the Kruger National Park, Gurney Environmental is shipping a wind powered Accel-o-Fac® system as an upgrade to the WwTP at Dwarskersbos, South Africa. Dwarskersbos is a settlement in the Western Cape province of South Africa. The beach stretches from Velddrif and Dwarskerbos to Elands Bay, making it the longest uninterrupted sandy beach in South Africa.

This installation is a follow-on from the recent successful Accel-o-Fac® upgrade for the South Africa National Parks at the Skukuza Rest Camp in the Kruger National Park. South Africa National Parks is the largest user of pond-style wastewater treatment systems in South Africa, and Accel-o-Fac® fits in with their eco/sustainability focus of seeking out significantly greener and more sustainable options.


Meeting the Challenges of Climate Change

Employing the windpowered SERIES 3 aeration units in the Accel-o-Fac® system uniquely meets the many challenges of climate change with an extremely low carbon footprint, dramatic energy savings, no sludge production or handling, plus energy-free disinfection, thereby making effluent suitable for irrigation water re-use or safe-bathing waters whether discharged to river or sea.


Installation Improves Performance Whilst Saving Energy

The Accel-o-Fac® upgrade will be used to significantly improve overall treatment within the WwTP whilst also controlling odours, digesting sludge and improving disinfection. With a zero-to-low energy cost, the benefits are gained with OPEX savings that can literally pay for the initial capital cost.
