General Electric will install a desalination plant at Bonaire
General Electric (GE) is to supply its Procera water filtration equipment package for a seawater desalination plant expansion project in Hato on the Caribbean island of Bonaire.
The plant provides drinking water for the entire island. GE will provide a complete seawater desalination facility including six multimedia filters, two SeaPRO-84 seawater reverse osmosis (RO) units, two modified PRO-150-NA brackish water RO units and a control system.
The project is an expansion of Water and Energy Company Bonaire’s (WEB’s) current desalination plant, which GE operates for the utility under a build, own, operate contract. The new, permanent facility will supply desalinated water at 1,600 m³/d to meet the growing demand for clean water from the island’s residents and businesses.
GE will provide system training to WEB staff. They expect to commission the expanded desalination facility in August 2015.
