We solve energy and water problems...
We assist our customers to develop, source and bring innovative and disruptive technology and financial solutions to the
Energy, Water, Sanitation and Infrastructure sectors.
Water and Sanitation
Water protection and conservation is key for South Africa which is the 30th driest country in the world.
The Water Industry in South Africa is taking strain as a result of water scarcity, inequitable distribution, population growth, increased demand, deteriorating and failing infrastructure, high water losses, high non-revenue water, non-payment, excessive pollution, skills loss, poor information systems, climate change, urbanisation and a lack of funding instruments.
With 28 years of experience in the water sector, Sizana connects the above dots. Our innovative water and sanitation solutions include leak free toilet cisterns to reduce non-revenue water and water losses, efficient water aerators for treating contaminated water, smart water metering and billing, real time water balances, real time leak detection and notification and gutter innovations to catapult rainwater harvesting to next levels and activated carbon applications.
The Just Transition from fossil energy to renewable energy are key drivers of our business.
The Energy Industry in South Africa is mainly fossil fuel (coal and petroleum) driven. The energy sector suffers due to insufficient generation capacity, insufficient energy storage capacity, increasing demand for electricity, deteriorating and failing infrastructure, high energy losses, low revenue collection, excessive pollution, skills loss, high debt levels, high petroleum imports, climate change and lack of funding.
Increasing renewable energy (solar, wind and hydro) is driving the need for increased energy storage. Sizana is working in partnership with Energy Vault PLC (USA and Switzerland), iX engineers and leading IPC contractors to provide disruptive energy storage and energy management solutions for Southern Africa.
We assist our customers to reduce the carbon footprints of their diesel driven power generation, logistics and transport equipment with advanced onboard hydrogen and oxygen generation and injection technologies. This process reduces diesel consumption and CO2/CO emissions by 15% to 30%, and reduces exhaust soot or Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM), Sulphur Oxides (SOx) and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emissions by up to 70%.
Modern infrastructure owners prefer financed vehicles where the assets are leased as an operational (Opex) expense for a lease period, instead of paying for everything upfront as a capital investment (Capex). Alternatively, assets in private ownership are acquired, given it renders adequate bankable returns for its new owners.
Government will not be able to fund infrastructure to meet demands. Private sector funding will therefore play an increasingly important role in future.
