A project on the installation of desalination plants on several islets to address urgent needs of quality drinking water will be completed very soon.

This is one of the Government’s projects to fulfill both its political manifesto and long-term vision known as KV20 to enhance the livelihood of the people by providing clean and quality water to those people living on most affected islands with water salinity. The project is funded through the Disaster Resilience Fund from the Office of Te Beretitent.

Following a survey that was conducted when this project was first initiated in 2020, it was confirmed that the islets to have their desalination plants installed include Kiebu on Makin, Abamwakoro on Nonouti, Tenaatorua, Aiwa and Bangai on Tabiteuea Meang, Takuu on Tabiteuea Maiaki, and Tabuarorae on Onotoa.

According to a report on the progress of the project, construction works on the sheds for these desalination plants have already commenced on the islands of Makin, Tabiteuea Meang, Tabiteuea Maiaki, Onotoa and Nonouti will be started very soon as the materials have just been delivered earlier this month to this island. Furthermore, all desalination plants have also been delivered to these island councils and ready for installation after the construction works on their sheds complete. The capacity of each desalination plant is 12,000 Litres per 24 hours or 500 Litres per hour which is very enough for people on these Islets.

The Office of Te Beretitenti together with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Sustainable Energy are now planning for the deployment of water engineers to these islands to install these plants when travel arrangements are made on the most available flights.

To ensure the sustainability of this project, a Memorandum of Understanding will be signed between the Government and these island Councils so that those who will use this people will be given ownership and responsibility to use it properly for the livelihood of the people on these islets.

The Government is expecting these desalination plants to be used on these islands before end of this year.
