Over the year’s Nanny Cay has been making constant improvements to the facilities, and considerable strides in making itself fully self-sufficient in terms of infrastructural needs. We are also steadily greening operations where we can.
Nanny Cay has two 750 kva generators with the second installed in late 2015. With current loads, this gives us one redundant generator enabling us to use them on an alternating basis. As our power needs increase, the generators will run in tandem, balancing the loads if necessary. However, we will able to provide more than enough power for both marinas when full.
In 2013, Nanny Cay installed Tortola’s first marine waste pump-out facility on K dock near the entrance to the marina. The US-built SaniSailor marine pump-out system can remove waste at 20-35 gallons per minute.
This feeds into Nanny Cay’s existing waste treatment plant which currently processes approximately 19,000 gallons of waste water per day which was installed in 2006. 3000 gallons are reused as gray water on a daily basis.
Nanny Cay’s reverse osmosis water plant, installed in 2002, produces 50,000 gallons per day feeding the entire property with potable water. We also have a Clear Water vending machine with full filtration and UV disinfection for visitors to fill and reuse up to 5 gallon containers.
The back up generators, r/o and recycling plants ensure that we are 100% self-sufficient if we need to be, and put no strain whatsoever on Tortola’s infrastructure.
A waste oil storage unit with 64 square foot containers and emergency trap was installed in the Summer of 2016.
Also in 2016, Nanny Cay added an island-style garbage truck. This new garbage truck ensures better management of garbage removal around the property. We also undertake weekly mosquito control inspections and have a number of In2Care mosquito traps around the property.
