They will go through training on how to operate and maintain the 6 solar-powered desalination plants on Bipi before the project is formally commissioned and handed over to them.
This will also happen in the other four islands in Manus who are recipients of this water project.
National desalination project manager, Tom Anayabere, said testing, certification and commissioning will take place this Friday on Bipi Island.
“All desalination works on Bipi Island will be completed by this Sunday. Next week we will start with Mbuke Island,” Anayabere said.
