The V&A Waterfront’s Silo District is recognised as one of the most advanced and environmentally-friendly developments in Africa, as the completed No 1 and No 2 Silo developments use the waters of the Atlantic Ocean in the surrounding harbour to provide cooling and heating to the R2.5-billion project, which is due for completion in 2017 once an additional four silo developments are fully-operational.
Given the water shortage in Cape Town, and the fact that the V&A Waterfront desalination project was only awarded in January 2018, WSP, QFS and Osmoflo have achieved impressively in this fast-track project.
