Providenciales has no source of natural freshwater and minimal annual rainfall. The island therefore relies on the production of desalinated water, produced by Turks & Caicos Water Company Ltd and distributed by Provo Water Company Ltd.
HAB Group purchased TCWC in 1989, in conjunction with the initial plans to build Provo Golf Club. Provo Water Company was then set up in December 1996 to lay water mains and distribute water across the islands, with coverage now exceeding 90% of Provo’s developed areas.
The success of both companies reflects the growth in development on Providenciales, and represents an important operational and community aspect to HAB Group’s activities.
