Tedagua consolidates its position as a leading operator in Spain with the commencement of the management contract for the Mutxamel desalination plant on November
- This move strengthens Tedagua's presence in the construction, operation, and maintenance of water infrastructure market, where its global leadership is complemented by the management of several of Spain's most unique facilities.
- Tedagua continues to solidify its dominant position in the Spanish water sector with the recent initiation of new Operation and Maintenance contracts.
The company's expertise has positioned it at the forefront of the Spanish water treatment market, aiming to transform various areas in compliance with European environmental standards. This involves embracing disruptive technologies for energy efficiency and digital infrastructure management.
The latest project to commence is the Operation and Maintenance of the Mutxamel desalination plant (Alicante), a contract awarded to Tedagua in a joint venture with Global Omnium Medioambiente. This contract involves managing one of the largest seawater desalination facilities on the Mediterranean coast, with a daily production capacity of 50,000 cubic meters, expandable to 80,000 as per supply demands. The contract includes the comprehensive installation of potable water supply, from seawater intake and pumping to the desalination plant with double-pass reverse osmosis and the distribution network. This facility joins Tedagua's portfolio of seawater desalination systems operated worldwide, totaling an operational experience of over 2 million cubic meters per day across more than 30 desalination plants on five continents.
Throughout this year, Tedagua is also managing one of the most significant contracts in this sector, involving the thermal drying plant with cogeneration at the ERAR Sur in Madrid, tendered by the Canal de Isabel II. The contract entails the management of dehydrated sludge produced in various treatment facilities managed by the Canal de Isabel II, including treatment, transport, and final disposal for agricultural use.
This contract adds to the previously awarded contract for the operation and maintenance of various sanitation, treatment, and supply facilities in La Rioja (Lot I Rioja Baja – Alhama), tendered by the Water and Waste Consortium of the Government of La Rioja. The project, undertaken in a joint venture led by Tedagua with its partner Aqlara, spans four years and includes the operation and maintenance of wastewater treatment plants, pumping wells, overflow outlets, storm tanks, emissaries, septic tanks, and other primary treatments managed by the Consortium. The facilities covered by the O&M contract include the Aguilar, Aldeanueva, Alfaro, Cabretón, and Cervera wastewater treatment plants, as well as the Ventas del Baño pumping station.
Another significant contract recently awarded to Tedagua is the Operation and Maintenance of the lot that includes the dams managed by Aguas de las Cuencas De España (ACUAES). The O&M will take place for an initial period of two years in a joint venture led by Tedagua with its partner Elecnor. The work focuses on dam supervision, handling communication systems in normal and emergency situations, and the implementation of centralized software for their management.In addition, activities such as cleaning and surveillance are carried out, along with the implementation of maintenance for facilities, including the dams of La Breña, Arenoso, Zapateros, Montoro, La Colada, Casares de Arbas, and the regulating dam in the Regajo stream, the diversion dam and main conduit of the irrigable area of the Adaja River (Zorita de los Molinos dam and reservoirs), and the San Salvador reservoir.
Furthermore, the Local Public Business Entity Balsas de Tenerife (BALTEN) once again entrusted the joint venture led by Tedagua, with the participation of Syocsa-Inarsa, with the operation, maintenance, and conservation services for the facilities comprising the Reuse and Desalination System of the Island of Tenerife for the next three years. The managed facilities include the entire island's reuse system, with a tertiary treatment system of 32,000 m3/day and three desalination plants capable of producing regenerated water at rates of 4,000, 8,000, and 12,000 m3/day.
The culmination of all these active projects reinforces Tedagua's position in the construction, operation, and maintenance of water infrastructure, enabling the purification and supply of drinking water through various environmentally sustainable and efficient infrastructures.
