WEB starts construction activities at Hato

Kralendijk, April 16th, 2020 -Water and Energy Company Bonaire N.V. (WEB) will start in April with the preparative work for the construction of the new water plant.

In November 2019, WEB ceremonially put the first spade in the ground for the construction of a new desalination plant together with IDE Technologies (IDE). The new installation will produce 5,600 m3 per day of seawater with an advanced drinking water production technology for our island.

The construction process will be divided into three construction phases: preparation of the building site, construction work of the installation and completion of the entire installation. The installation will be technically ready in the middle of the first quarter of 2021 to start producing drinking water. All work will be completed in the 3ed quarter of 2021.

Local residents adjacent to the water plant, will inevitably be inconvenienced. WEB will make every effort to minimize this inconvenience. The well-being and safety of local residents are a priority for WEB.

WEB continues to invest in the drinking water supply, so that reliable water supply to all households and large consumers on our island will be guaranteed. Despite the global pandemic, WEB will continue to invest in the future of Bonaire and the supply of high-quality drinking water.
