Veolia to Build Desalination Plant for Resort

Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, a global water and wastewater treatment specialist, has been retained to construct a sea water desalination system for Albany, a $1.3 billion luxury resort community under development in The Bahamas, according to a Feb. 2 press release.

The desalination structure at Albany will contain two seawater reverse osmosis units that will irrigate the resort community's 18-hole championship golf course.

The reverse osmosis units at Albany will be the first of their kind in the Caribbean. The desalination structure's modular design allows for ease and flexibility of installation, with limited exterior pipe runs. Manufacturing, testing, and delivery of the systems will be completed within 17 weeks.

Developed by investment company Tavistock Group and professional golfers Tiger Woods and Ernie Els, Albany is a 565-acre oceanfront community on the island of New Providence in The Bahamas.

Conveniently located just seven minutes from Nassau's international airport, Albany will feature a luxury boutique hotel, an array of residential offerings and amenities for all members of the family, including a mega-yacht marina, a family water park, and an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Ernie Els.
