The environmentally-conscious water facility will produce clean, desalinated water without the use of chemicals.
WD News: IDE Technologies has announced plans to design and build an expansion of the Hato Water Facility in partnership with Water and Energy Company Bonaire (WEB), increasing the facility’s water production by 30% to serve more than 20,000 local residents.
The expansion project is expected to be complete in the second quarter of 2024 and produce 9,600 m3 of clean, high-quality water once operational.
The Hato Water Facility incorporates reverse osmosis desalination technology, producing clean water from standard seawater without the use of chemicals – a significant environmental breakthrough in the industry.
“The expansion to Hato’s water facility marks a key milestone to provide clean drinking water to the local population while supporting the growing needs of the tourism industry on the island of Bonaire,” said Dr Efrat Miller, VP, Water Treatment and Business Development, IDE Technologies.
