Consolidated Water is the winning bidder for what could become the largest desalination plant in the Western Hemisphere.
The Mexican state of Baja California has announced the company won the bidding against two competitors, based on both technical and financial criteria. Consolidated Water now has 60 days to negotiate a public-private partnership with the state government. If that is successful, the company can then design, build and operate the plant.
The facility is scheduled to be operational in late 2019 and could eventually provide 100 million gallons of drinking water per day. Consolidated Water operates water plants and/or distribution centers in the Cayman Islands and five other countries.
