CAPE TOWN - Tsogo Sun Holdings Ltd. has been reported to be building a desalination plant that will help supply its Cape Town hotels with their own water.
This move will protect the companies guests from the Cape Town's hard-hitting drought.
According to Bloomberg, Tsogo chief operating officer Ravi Nadasen told reporters in a media briefing held in Johannesburg on Wednesday that the alternative source should be in operation for properties including the five-star Westin by early March at the latest.
The city of Cape Town has recently announced that Day Zero has been pushed to May 11. This is the scheduled date when the city will have be forced to turn off the taps at some residential suburbs.
Nadasen also said, "There is a plan in place that all of the alternative water sources will come on board before Day Zero comes. The current situation in Cape Town is going to become the new normal. We’ve got to be responsible as well".
