As WEB provided guidelines on how to work safely while complying with all COVID -19 measures in order for construction to continue, even during times of lockdown on the island. Working together at the construction site at times meant to be 1.5 meters apart.

The new drink water plant will be able to produce 7.200 M³ drinking water on a daily bases and is a modular plant. This means that as Bonaire continues to grow the plant can easily grow with the growing demand by adding units when and if necessary.
