A small community located 200 kms West of Pemba, in Northern Mozambique, will shortly be supplied drinking/potable water and waste water treatment from MAK Water.
This is MAK Water’s first project in Africa, with several more opportunities being explored in the region. The water treatment plants were designed and fabricated in Australia then packaged and shipped to Mozambique. MAK Water will supervise the onsite installation and commissioning and train local personnel to run the plants.
MAK Water was selected for the project from an international field of competitors due to a consistent track record designing and building reliable modularised water treatment plants. These plants are largely pre- fabricated and therefore simplify installation on site. MAK Water is going to remotely monitor and support the local operators to ensure trouble free operation.
We enjoy the challenge of operating in different countries and bringing back the lessons learnt into every new design built. The most recent innovation is to replace steel structures used in the bioreactor with a material that does not suffer from corrosion. This provides a design life of 15 years with substantially reduced maintenance.
In the last four years MAK Water has exported approximately 30% of the major projects that it builds to countries as diverse as Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Papua New Guinea.
