The Water Services Corporation is pleased to announce that it has published a multimillion Euro tender which represents an unprecedented investment in the quality and security of potable water supply for the Island of Gozo.

 

This investment will render the sister island completely self-sufficient in the provision of water.

The plant will be installed at Ħondoq on the site of the former sea-water distillation plant built in the 1960s. The new RO plant involves state of the art technology and it will also be able to supply water to Malta if this is necessary. The plant will have the potential to produce 9,000 cubic metres of water per day.

CEO Richard Bilocca stated that, “This reverse osmosis will ensure that Gozo is second to none in terms of the quality and security of its water supply. The project is a gem in itself as it will not only include the best available technology but it will also reach the highest environmental standards, both in terms of the surrounding environs and energy efficiency.”

 

The full tender document can be accessed at http://www.wsc.com.mt/tenders/ and bids close by mid-September 2018.

This project is led by the Water Services Corporation and may be co-financed through Cohesion funds.
