Genesis Analytics has been appointed the lead financial transaction adviser in a consortium of four companies tasked by the City of uMhlathuze’s municipality to assess the feasibility of re-using wastewater and associated by-products.
The study specifically explores the viability of a public-private partnership (PPP) for the project. If a PPP is viable and desirable, Genesis will assist uMhlathuze to procure one.
Currently wastewater discharges into sea through marine outfalls and into river sources at a time when there is increased pressure on potable water sources.
Genesis’s role is to help the city make informed strategic decisions on how it can efficiently and affordably re-use wastewater by involving the private sector.
We will determine the affordability and bankability of the project. Genesis will also assess whether the technical solution is value for money so that the uMhlathuze municipality can deliver its services.
