Process Simulation

FESTO Process Simulation Equipment

The Water Academy is working in partnership together with the German development agency GIZ, and the industrial education company Festo Didactic, in the PPP-Project ProESE (Practise-oriented Education in Sanitary Engineering).
The project aims to assist in increasing the access to clean water and improving the environmental impact of wastewater in South Africa by enriching educational programmes in the field of water treatment with practical learning modules that bring industrial technology and processes from the field into the classroom.
The project will provide a step-wise introduction to water process engineering and plant control. It will cover the water treatment cycle focusing on chemical dosing, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, and water quality control with hands-on, mobile, mini-plant learning systems.
