Independent water supply for large private estate

The private estate is situated at Jumby Bay; a private island off the coast of Antigua. The island has no natural water supply, and the private homes therefore depend on the island’s central water supply for fresh water and electricity.


AqSep found the perfect solution for the customer and his needs. For a private estate of this size covering 18,000 ft² (1,672 m²) with an 82’ (25 m) pool and multiple acres of land, a single watermaker is not enough to supply the estate with the required amount of water. For that reason, four WM11000E desalination units were installed at the private estate. With this desalination system, the owner can self-sufficiently meet the demand for drinking water.


As the desalination units obtain power from the estate’s own solar power plant, they predominantly run during the hours where the sun reaches its highest point. The units then reap excess energy and harness this to produce fresh water. If required, power can also be taken from the solar cell system’s battery storage. Each WM11000E unit can run individually or in parallel depending on available power and water demands.
