We solve water and energy problems...
Sizana Solutions means
We assist our clients to develop, source and bring innovative and disruptive technological and financial solutions to the Water, Sanitation, Energy, Agriculture and Infrastructure sectors.
Water and Sanitation
The Water Industry in South Africa is taking strain as a result of water scarcity, inequitable distribution, population growth, increasing 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 27 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, hybrid activated sludge systems to increase waste water treatment works capacity cost effectively, smart water metering, IoT solutions, real time water balances, real time leak detection, "Big Data" technologies for improved debt recovery and rainwater harvesting innovations to catapult rainwater harvesting to next levels.
Similar to the water industry, the Energy Industry in South Africa suffers due to insufficient generation capacity, insufficient energy storage capacity, more people demanding more electricity, deteriorating and failing infrastructure, high energy theft levels, cable theft, non-payment cultures, low revenue collection, excessive air pollution, skills loss, high debt levels climate change and a lack of funding.
Increased renewable energy is driving the need for increased energy storage. Sizana is working in partnership with Energy Vault SA (a Swiss company) and iX engineers to provide disruptive energy storage solutions and private funding of energy infrastructure.
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.
We partner with the Gaia Group who specialise in the funding of bankable infrastructure.
Infrastructure Asset Management
The Water, Energy and Food industries are closely interlinked. They are critical to the welfare of nations and they all require infrastructure assets that are well managed. Infrastructure is under pressure globally for numerous reasons and it is important to raise the standard of Infrastructure Asset Management in accordance with with ISO 55000/1/2 guidelines.
We help infrastructure intensive organisations with Asset Management initiatives. We tailor the best value for money over the life cycle of the assets through optimal designs, operation, maintenance, upgrades, replacements and disposals at the end of its useful life.
