Operation and Maintenance (O&M)

Operation and Maintenance is a dedicated division of Aveng Water which specialises in the management and operation of water treatment equipment. This function is critical to the successful and long term economical operation of plants. With over 10 years’ experience in the operation and maintenance (O&M) field, we currently operate 5 plants with a staff compliment of 180 dedicated employees across 2 countries.

Aveng Water’s O&M programmes are design to improve efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of water production. O&M activities, which encompass not only technical issues but also managerial, social, financial, skill transfer and training and development, are directed towards the elimination or reduction of the major constraints which prevent the achievement of sustainability.

Benefits of O&M

  • Implement a safety programme aligned to OHSAS 18001 with incentives / penalties for better or poorer results. Three of the current Aveng Water operating sites have recently achieved OHSAS 18001 Certification.
  • O&M subscribes to the ISO 9001: 2000 principles of “continuous improvement” and could implement a total quality management system along these principles.
  • O&M offers guarantees for SHE targets, throughput, efficiency and operating costs, once a benchmark has been achieved and agreed upon between the parties, linked to a risk based penalty / incentive system.

O&M has successfully developed its capabilities by offering innovative, technical and commercial solutions to suit individual projects and client requirements.

Aveng Water’s O&M currently operate the following plants:

  • eMalahleni Water Reclamation plant, Mpumalanga
  • Optimum Colliery Water Reclamation Plant, Mpumalanga
  • Erongo Sea Water Desalination plant, in Namibia
