Over Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th of February we were involved in the repairs to a major breakdown to Gibraltar’s sea water supply system. The breakdown caused a loss of supply to a large part of Gibraltar’s sea water infrastructure. Emergency repairs were required to two large 300 mm sea water pumping mains.
Our personnel assisted by our sub contractor’s, managed to undertake these essential repairs in a relatively short period of time under very difficult conditions, which were made significantly more challenging in that part of these repairs were undertaken in an exposed location during the blizzard conditions that affected Gibraltar on the evening of Sunday 9th February 2104.
AquaGib is proud of our employees who persevered to work as a team under very difficult conditions to ensure that essential repairs were completed on Sunday 9th February 2014 to enable the return of sea water supplies to our customers within the earliest possible period. Our thanks and congratulations on a job well done go to all those involved. Special thanks go to those who worked under the exposed conditions during the storm. The Hon Steven Linares Company Chairman and Minister for Utilities, visited the company on Thursday 13 February to personally thank the employees at the Water Networks and Water Production Departments who were involved in the works.
