WEB Aruba N.V.
Aruba has a lot to offer: like plenty of sun, beautiful beaches, and friendly people. However, Aruba does not have a natural source of fresh water and rainfall is limited. Aruba’s population of 100,000 inhabitants plus the more than 700,000 tourists who visit annually, have access to sufficient drinking water which in quality and taste can compete with any other water in the world, including bottled water!
For more than 70 years, WATER- EN ENERGIEBEDRIJF ARUBA N.V. (WEB) has been responsible for the production of Aruba’s drinking water and power and has done an outstanding job.
This remarkable achievement is the result of years of dedicated effort by W.E.B. Aruba N.V.’s employees, management, and predecessors. W.E.B. Aruba N.V. generates electricity, and produces drinking and industrial water through an integrated process utilizing steam. The cornerstone of this process is the desalination of seawater, which Aruba has in abundance from the Caribbean Sea.
Nowadays, W.E.B. Aruba N.V. is a modern company ready to face Aruba’s needs and the challenges of the third millennium with state of the art facilities and equipment, latest technological advances, highly qualified personnel, and continuous improvement of service, efficiency, and reliability of its operations.
During the last decade, W.E.B. Aruba N.V. has invested approximately 250 million dollars to upgrade, modernize, and expand its water production and electricity generation by installing additional boilers, a desalination unit, modern automated control systems, and a new turbine generator. An integral part of these advancements has been the development of its personnel.
