One of Sweden’s most remarkable sea areas
Northern Väderöarna Islands is situated in the archipelago of Bohuslän, on the West Coast of Sweden about 130 km north from Gothenburg. The islands are located 13 km outside of mainland (Fjällbacka). Väderöarna is a marine nature reserve comprising 99% water. Together with the adjoining Kosterhavet, it constitutes one of Sweden’s most remarkable sea areas, with a multitude of animal and plant species. It has one of Sweden´s warmest and windiest climate, you can for example find one of the largest seal colonies in Bohuslän. The different climate gives an exciting combination of lush greenery and barren vulnerability. Ornithologists, anglers, divers and other nature enthusiasts have a lot to discover on the island group, both above and below sea level. In the past the waters off Väderöarna were feared and many ships were wrecked here. The pilot’s station on Storö from 1754 made the shipping safer. The station was manned until the 1960s. Today there is an inn, on Storön Island, with a restaurant and meeting facilities that is open all year round. The old pilot station remains on the top of the island and offers an amazing view over the surroundings. There is also a guest harbour for visiting boats and taxi boats go to and from the island.
Modernized guest harbor with new service facilities
By the end of 2013 the National Property Board Sweden (Statens fastighetsverk, SFV)* started the process of improving the guest harbor by adding a service facility on the Väderöarna Islands. The project was a consequence of the vision of the SFV to make the islands more accessible and more comfortable to stay at. The project Enwa was contacted when a request was sent out to local entrepreneurs to build the service house in the guest harbor.
Enwa has delivered two water makers (SW 15T) to the facility. The plant has two separate lines for production of drinking water. Each line has a feed pump and pretreatment with sand filter. After the reverse osmoses unit, the water treats with a filter that increases the pH-value and makes the water tastier. The water is collected into a tank, and before distribution it passes through an UV-light. Each line has a capacity of 15 m3/day.
