The Environment Secretariat of the state of Rio de Janeiro has awarded ACCIONA Agua, in consortium with the Brazilian companies SERVENG and GEL, a €117 million contract to build the wastewater treatment system of São Gonçalo, the second-largest city in the state after Rio de Janeiro.                                                        

The new water infrastructure will service a population of 250,000 and involve the environmental recovery of the Alcântara and Mutondo river basins.

The project, which will be built over three years, includes the construction of a complete sanitation system including a wastewater treatment plant with a flow rate of 1.2 m3/second and a pumping station with capacity for 1.99 m3/second, a sewerage network, a drainage system, a pumping station at Yamagata with a flow rate of 1,5 m3/second, eight low-flow pumping stations, and connections to households.

This is ACCIONA Agua’s second contract in Brazil. The first involved the renovation and improvement of the Arrudas water treatment plant in the state of Minas Gerais, which is now operational.
