St. Thomas Emergency Water Project
Degeneration of the entire thermal desalination system caused critical water shortages in St. Thomas.
The ensuing catastrophic water restrictions affected all community areas, including homes, businesses, local restaurants, medical facilities, and tourism during peak season.
The EXCEL team was challenged to land containers, equipment, and material with a minimal footprint. However, through diligence, perseverance, innovation, constructive imagination, and long hours, the final piece of almost 2,000 linear feet of pipe was installed on December 20, and EXCEL achieved "Water by Christmas" after only eight work days.
EXCEL mobilized additional teams to continue deploying other osmosis systems and piping until achieving the island's required production of 2 million gallons per day. As a demonstration of our commitment to safety and quality, our crews successfully performed all the work without any safety incidents or a single leak in the several thousand feet of piping installed. During the three phases of this project, EXCEL raised the bar in the rapid deployment of desalination technology. Seven Seas Water Corporation subsequently signed EXCEL for continuing scopes of work on related matters in St. Thomas.
