July 28, 2009 -- ESA has signed a contract with ABS for the supply of stainless steel AFP submersible pumps to be used in a new desalination plant built in southeast of Spain.

The Spanish State company Acuamed, S.A. caring for the Mediterranean basin water, through the UTE Águilas-Guadalentín Desalination Plant -- a consortium consisting of Ferrovial, Agromam, Sacyr Sadyt and Cadagua -- chose ABS for the catchment and pumping of sea water to the desalination plant that is presently under construction on the coast of the region of Murcia, southeast Spain. This project is within the framework of the A.G.U.A. Programme by the Spanish Ministry of the Enviroment for improvement of water resources.

The plant, with an estimated investment cost of 239 million Euros, will have a capacity of 70 hm3/year, out of which 57 hm3 are destined for crop irrigation, and 13 hm3 for drinking water supply to a population of 130,000 inhabitants.
