Production on this project has not yet begun, he explains but will kick in during march so as to be ready for Day Zero.

Stensland explains that SAB would produce water on a weekly basis, to provide a million cases of water - which is 12 million quart bottles, or 9 million litres in total, over a period of March to July.
