Reverse Osmosis Plants on Sister Isles

The reverse osmosis plants for Carriacou and Petite Martinique are one step closer to becoming operational.

The Grenada Electricity Services Ltd (GRENLEC) through partnership with the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs and local Government recently connected the solar system; located on lands at the Limlair Livestock Station to their grid.

Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs Bernadette Lendore-Sylvester thanked GRENLEC for their partnership; as the use of the solar system will bring about a reduction in the electrical cost of operating the plant.

Mrs Sylvester noted that the problem of low water supply especially during the dry season; will soon be a thing of the past for residents of the sister isle of Carriacou and Petite Martinique.

Branch Manager of GRENLEC Wallace Collins said his company is happy to be partnering with Government for such an initiative; as they promote the use of renewable energy.

Residents of Petite Martinique already had the opportunity to sample the water produced at their plant.

With Government’s quest to provide a sustainable potable water supply for the people of Carriacou and Petite Martinique assistance was sought in 2012 from the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre to develop the project.

Presently, the people of the twin isle parish largely depend on rainwater harvesting to meet their potable water needs.
