Bonaire Desalination Plant (Bonaire)


Bonaire’s new desalination plant, a result of IDE Water Technologies and WEB Bonaire’s long-standing partnership, produces 5,600 m3/d of drinking water to meet the high demands of Bonaire’s nearly 22,500 residents. Both companies made strides to overcome the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring the island of Bonaire would become a more sustainable and prosperous region with access to clean drinking water.

“We’re extremely fortunate for the work IDE and WEB Bonaire have done to provide fresh drinking water to the citizens of Bonaire and are excited to see the benefits of this plant for years to come.”
