The Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) government has provided 10 water desalination machines to the island provinces of Sulu and Tawi-Tawi to ensure the availability of potable water.
Minister Naguib Sinarimbo of the Ministry of the Interior and Local Government (MILG) – BARMM said here Tuesday the machines, costing PHP20 million each, have an output capacity of 22,000 liters of water per day and can operate for 8-10 hours.
THE Ministry of the Interior and Local Government in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (MILF-Barmm) released three desalination machines worth P60 million on Saturday, August 28, to the Provincial Government of Sulu.
Sulu Provincial Administrator Erwin Tan, who received the desalination machines on behalf of Governor Abdusakur Tan, said the equipment are intended for the island towns of Hadji Panglima Tahil, Pandami, and Pata.

So, as we “celebrate” World Water Week, it’s time to turn our attention to the global water crisis facing cities around the world struggling with increasing demand for water, reduction of water resources and increasing water pollution, all driven by dramatic world population growth which is expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050.
THE Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (Barmm) is set to deliver the first three sets of desalination machines worth P20 million each to three island towns in the province of Sulu to address the crisis of drinking water in the three municipalities.
Barmm Chief Minister Ahod Ebrahim reiterated that the distribution of the desalination machine project is intended for waterless communities in island provinces that have no access to clean and drinkable water.
In a statement, FDCUI said its wholly-owned subsidiary, FDC Water Utilities Inc., was given a notice of award by the MCWD for its unsolicited proposal to put up desalination plants to supply potable water to Cebu City, Lapu-Lapu City, and Talisay City.
FDCUI added that FDC Water Utilities obtained the deal following its success in the competitive challenge process as prescribed by the 2013 National Economic and Development Authority Joint Venture Guidelines between government and private entities that allow third parties to submit comparative proposals.
This hunt for water supply led MCWD chairman Jose Daluz III and directors Francisco “Frank” Malilong Jr., Miguelito Pato and Judelyn Mae Seno to visit Mangasang Falls in the mountain barangay of Tagbao, Cebu City on Thursday, June 24, 2021.
We expect that there will be an increase, but our direction is we will not increase water rates if the consumers cannot feel there is enough water,” said MCWD’s acting corporate planning department manager John Neville Macabenta in a mix of English and Cebuano.
This was what the Metropolitan Cebu Water District (MCWD) assured its consumers as it enters into a water desalination project with FDC Utilities Inc., a subsidiary of Filinvest Development Corp. (FDC).
