A desalination plan system, which could produce 1,500 gallons of potable water everyday, has been constructed in the Philippines’ northernmost outpost, Mavulis Island in Batanes.

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana led the inauguration of a desalination plant system which he said was completed partnership of the AFP’s Northern Luzon Command (NOLCOM) and the AFP Savings and Loan Association Incorporated (AFPSLAI).

More than P3 million was spent for the desalination plant’s construction. The process involves removing salts from saline water like seawater.
