Team Finland visit to the Republic of South Africa on October 17-21, 2016
South Africa has very limited water resources, meaning there are opportunities for companies offering water treatment and water management solutions for the public and private sectors. The delegation will focus on the Western Cape and proximity of Gauteng regions, where several potential business partners have already been identified. Project financing and partnering possibilities and options will also be introduced to delegates during the visit.
There are also opportunities for modernization projects in the mining sector. Solutions for higher productivity in mines and mineral processing are needed. Rising electricity costs and water scarcity create demands for higher efficiency and new water treatment solutions.
In the energy sector, companies will be introduced to bioenergy and waste to energy opportunities as well as smart grid projects.
