Tedagua and BALTEN sign a maintenance contract for the Tenerife Island Reuse and Desalination System
· Operation, maintenance and preservation services will be provided for the facilities that compose the Tenerife Island Reuse and Desalination System.
· The set of facilities awarded as part of this new contract includes a 32,000 m3/day tertiary treatment system and three desalination plants with a recycled water production capacity of 4,000, 8,000 and 12,000 m3/day.
Entidad Publica Empresarial Local Balsas de Tenerife (BALTEN) has once again awarded the operation, maintenance and preservation of the facilities that compose the Tenerife Island Reuse and Desalination System to the Tedagua / Syocsa-Inarsa joint venture. The contract has a budget of over six million euros for its planned three-year initial duration.
The facilities integrated within the system are located at the edges of the Island of Tenerife, which involve some of the water recycling systems with the most innovative technologies in the reuse and desalination market, which guarantees the supply of water to the agricultural and touristic sectors in one of the most iconic locations of the Canary Islands archipelago.
With distances of up to 90 km separating the facilities, one of the contract’s challenges is the correct planning of the service, which will require a staff with balanced skills to work together in the filtering, desalination, elevation and transportation activities.
The set of facilities awarded as part of this new contract includes a 32,000 m3/day tertiary treatment system, several 15,000 m3 regulating reservoirs and a series of gravity-fed and pump-fed pipeline systems of over 80 km. In addition, the services will also cover three pumping stations and three desalination plants with a recycled water production capacity of 4,000, 8,000 and 12,000 m3/day.
The use of new information and remote control technologies will constitute a powerful tool for the integral and holistic operation of the Tenerife Island Reuse and Desalination System, aligning it with the needs of the 21st century.
With this, Tedagua manages to renew one of the most significant infrastructure operation service contracts in the water market, and strengthen its presence in the Canary Islands, where it was founded in 1983 and where it is undertaking projects as important as the supply of water to La Palma after the effects of the volcano eruption and the Chira Soria reversible hydroelectric complex.
