TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AquaVenture Holdings Limited (NYSE: WAAS) ("AquaVenture" or the "Company"), a leader in Water-as-a-ServiceTM ("WAASTM") solutions, today provided an update on its Caribbean operations following Hurricane Irma.
"I am pleased with the way our company has weathered the impact of Hurricane Irma. Irma affected us at our plants in St. Maarten, the US Virgin Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos, and the Bahamas, as well as our operations center in Tampa, Florida. All Seven Seas Water employees are safe and accounted for. Through a combination of sound facilities construction and comprehensive storm preparation, our plants are either operating or ready to resume operations once electric power is restored. We expect to have all of our plants, except for our facility in the BVI, operating within one week. In the BVI, we are working with the government to restore power to our plant, which once restored will resume operations," said Doug Brown, AquaVenture's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are still very early in the process of gathering information and plan on providing an update regarding any financial impact on our earnings call for the third quarter. In the meantime, our team is working closely with our partners on the islands, relief organizations and local communities to assist in any way we can, and look forward to providing clean water to these communities going forward as the islands begin to recover and rebuild."
