Antigua to replace all reverse osmosis membranes
25 Jul 18 by Carl Myers
The Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) is to replace all the membranes at its reverse osmosis plants to improve productivity, reports Antigua Observer.
The move is expected to cost in the region of $180,000 per facility.
Antigua is one of two major islands comprising the state of Antigua and Barbuda, and relies on desalination for a large proportion of its water supply, for municipal, commercial, and agricultural use.
The desalination facilities include the Sembcorp Plant of 14,000 m3/d, and facilities at Camp Blizzard, and Ffryes Beach, both at 2,740 m3/d; as well as plants at Pigeon Point, English Harbour, and Barbuda.
