CEBU, Philippines – Cebu-based Mactan Rock Industries Inc., (MRII) has inked a partnership deal with resort developer 7,107 Development Corporation, to provide water technology solutions to all the latter’s upcoming projects.
MRII consultant James Cook said that the company will develop water solutions facilities for resort projects of 7,107 Development Corporation in the next few years, initially covering developments in the islands of Buswaga, Coron in Palawan, and small islet called Carabao Island in Boracay.
“This is to start our focus on providing water technology solutions to tourism related projects, especially those that are located on an island, where water supply is scare,” Cook said.
MRII already started installing a water technology facility that would provide improved water supply using the Reserve Osmosis (RO), desalination, and others to its partners’ current resort project in Coron, Palawan.
According to Cook, 7,107 Development Corporation led by Steve Tajanlangit is set to develop and put up Resort facilities in 18 to 22 Islands around the Philippines, these are major and high-end Resort projects.
MRII and 7,107 Development Corporation has signed a 50-year contract for this joint venture, as the later plans to put up more resort facilities in different Islands and Islets all over the country.
Obviously, Cook said one of the major problems in developing a Resort on an Island of instance is the availability of ample water supply.
Cook said MRII will be using environment-friendly solutions, such as zero waste-water discharge, to use recycled water for the Resorts’ irrigation and other secondary purposes like toilet flushing, among others.
Already, MRII together with its another partner Pilipinas Water Resources Inc., have started similar joint venture projects, only that these two companies focused on local government units (LGU) partnerships to provide water supply for residents in a particular Island.
This time, Cook said MRII will focus on installing water technology system to privately owned companies, like those developments that will be developed by the 7,107 Development Corporation.
Mactan Rock is providing water technology solutions to over 350 industries around the country. It is the first company in Asia that introduced the desalination process, which will purify seawater turning it as potable water.
MRII, is strengthening its nationwide expansion plan, by introducing its water technology solutions to support the development growth of tourism-related projects.
Now, that the Philippines is becoming a well-known destination for eco-tourism, and adventure tourism that will push investors to put up resort and hotel projects on different Islands, and remote mountain areas, water availability is one of the most important necessities, Cook stressed.
