(Tampa, Fla.) – Seven Seas Water, a multi-national provider of Water-as-a-Service® (“WaaS®”) solutions, today announced that it has acquired Aguas de Panama S.A. (“APSA”) and Sembcorp Investments Ltd (“SIL”), wholly-owned subsidiaries of Sembcorp Holdings Ltd.
With the acquisition of APSA, we will own and operate a 20 MGD (millions of gallons per day) conventional water treatment plant, intake pump station and raw water and distribution pipelines. The plant began operations in 2002, and under a thirty year concession contract with Insitituto de Acueductos y Alcantarillados Nacionales (IDAAN), the national water company of Panama, the plant extracts water from Lake Gatun, treats the water, then transports and delivers potable water to Nuevo Chorillo, approximately 12 miles from Panama City. The plant serves the Arraijan District with a population of approximately 420,000 residents.
Olaf N. Krohg, CEO of Seven Seas Water, commented: “We are very pleased to complete this transaction to add to our Latin American portfolio. We are looking forward to establishing ourselves in Panama and explore how we may be able to expand our role in serving the country’s water needs.”
