The Autonomous Community of Madrid has received more than 5,000 5-litre carafes of water for the IFEMA hospital from Canal de Isabel II. The company has begun to supply half-litre water bottles for their distribution to healthcare workers who are working during the coronavirus (COVID-19) health emergency.
Specifically, 5,040 5-litre carafes of bottled water, 25,200 litres, from the Canal facilities in Colmenar Viejo arrived at IFEMA yesterday, the same day the first patients were admitted. Furthermore, to facilitate the use of the carafes, Canal de Isabel II will distribute individual-use dispensers and glasses in the coming days, for both the IFEMA hospital and other medical facilities.
Since 2013, Canal de Isabel II has a bottling plant in its Colmenar Viejo facilities. This plant normally bottles 5-litre carafes to be supplied to the people of Madrid in the event of pipe ruptures and breakdowns resulting in a cut in supply, but it also has the ability to produce individual bottles.
For this reason, for the past two weeks and in order to service the need raised by the regional Government during the coronavirus crisis, the public company began the necessary work in order to produce continuously, and as soon as possible, the largest amount of bottled water to facilitate the work of healthcare professionals in hospitals and medical facilities.
In addition to this service, Canal is guaranteeing the supply and sanitation of water in the region with more than a thousand professionals working in shifts in the company’s different integrated water cycle management facilities.
