Tedagua’s experience in small-scale desalination, protagonist at the European Desalination Society
- Raúl Fernández, Tedagua’s Engineering Manager, gave a presentation on the company’s rapid and effective response to the emergency caused by the volcano on La Palma (Canary Islands). He also introduced different models of containerized plants that Tedagua has developed to meet different needs.
- The forum allowed the company to share its experience in desalination in different environments and the opportunity to offer new services that adapt to the current situation, with the scarcity of resources caused by climate change as a central axis.
In recent days, the webinar titled “Small Scale Desalination” was held by the European Desalination Society (EDS) in collaboration with the Technological Institute of the Canary Islands (ITC) and Desal+ Living Lab. Tedagua had an active participation in the hands of Raúl Fernández, the company’s Engineering Manager.
The presentation focused on the experience accumulated by Tedagua in its rapid and effective response to the catastrophe caused by the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island of La Palma (Canary Islands). The supply of three desalination plants allowed to save a large part of the banana plantations to mitigate the damage to the local economy.
All this effort opened the door for Tedagua to develop different models of containerized plants to meet any need for quality water as it happened in La Palma. These are compact, quick to install, and scalable solutions to achieve the required water volume at any given time.
The opportunity provided by the European Desalination Society (EDS) to share the knowledge acquired and the experience accumulated by Tedagua in recent years is a boost to continue working to offer integral and effective solutions to any situation of water stress.
