Desal plants to arrive soon
TWO NEW PACKAGED desalination plants are expected to arrive on the island next week, Minister of Agriculture and Water Resource Management Dr David Estwick has announced.
They are being brought in by Williams Industries and Innotech, which have reportedly been dealing independently with IDE, the largest desalination company in the world, and Australia’s Osmoflo.
Speaking in the House of Assembly Thursday night, the minister said while he was not involved in those arrangements, his ministry and the Barbados Water Authority were proceeding with the long-term solution to the country’s water woes by setting up salt water desalination.
“The Water Authority has engaged Williams Industries, and the present desalination plant in Spring Garden will be expanded to pull out an additional three million gallons of water,” he said. (WILLCOMM)
