The recent South African Institution of Civil Engineers (SAICE) Southern Cape Regional Awards saw Royal HaskoningDHV winning the award for the Most Outstanding Water Engineering Project.

SAICE Award GeorgeThe international engineering and project management consultancy won for the work done at the Kleinkrantz Waste Water Treatment Works.

Originally commissioned in 1995, the Kleinkrantz Waste Water Treatment Works treats effluent from Wilderness and surrounds. Over the last twenty years, the population in the area has increased and new neighbourhoods were connected, requiring an upgrade to the plant.

George Municipality commissioned Royal HaskoningDHV to design and manage the project. During construction, the design was adapted to re-use parts of old structures that were excavated on site. This allowed savings on the project, enabling additional improvements to the works. A joint venture between Khubeka Construction and Huber Technology was appointed to perform the contract work.

Kleinkrantz Wastewater Treatment Works received the first runner-up award in the Best Wastewater Treatment Works at the Water Institute of Southern Africa (WISA) Western Cape Process Controller awards held earlier this year. George Municipality also won Best Waste Water Pond System (Herolds Bay Waste Water Treatment Works) and the Best Internal Waste Water Laboratory category (Outeniqua Waste Water Treatment Works) at these awards. In addition, Wilderness Water Treatment Works was first runner-up in the Best Water Treatment Works category.

The SAICE Regional Engineering Excellence Awards were presented at a gala dinner. In addition to the upgrading of the Kleinkrantz Wastewater Treatment Works in Wilderness, a study into the slope failure under homes in Seemeeuvlug and Tuscan Village in Mossel Bay was awarded the Geotechnical Engineering project of the year.

In previous years, projects from the Southern Cape Region proceeded to national SAICE acclaim.
These include high-profile emergency water projects such as the seawater desalination plant in Mossel Bay and the multi-faceted water supply schemes in Knysna and Sedgefield (2010 - 2011).
