New desalination plant launched in Puerto Aventuras

Puerto Aventuras, Q.R. — Water service provider Aguakan has launched the operation of its third desalination plant in the Municipality of Solidaridad and the first in the town of Puerto Aventuras. The launch was made Friday. The company says it has a production capacity of up to 50 liters per second.

Jorge Montoya, Manager of Aguakan in the municipality of Solidaridad, gave the green light for the start-up of the plant in Puerto Aventuras. He says with an investment of more than 53 million peso, the infrastructure allows the company to produce top quality water through the use of reverse osmosis technology.

The process begins by extracting water from the groundwater table through an on-site well, which passes to a disinfection phase for processing in the high-pressure ultrafiltration battery where the dissolved solids are separated and contained in semi-permeable membranes.

With this technology, Montoya says Aguakan can guarantee quality water while maintaining environmental harmony in a friendly and very safe process.

“Today, we officially put into operation the infrastructure that directly benefits 6,215 clients and that gives us the possibility, through the execution of complementary projects in 2021, to add to this benefit a similar population during the next five years,” stated Jorge Montoya.
