Optimizing Water Management Globally
ACCIONA Agua designs, constructs, manages and operates water and wastewater infrastructure for global industrial and municipal clients.
ACCIONA Agua designs, constructs, manages and operates water and wastewater infrastructure for global industrial and municipal clients. In the desalination market ACCIONA Agua manages 75 desalinations plants with a total capacity of 2.1 million m3/day. Capacity is no constraint to the size of project we deliver, with six of the plants over 100,000 m3/day and 60 plants over 5,000 m3/day.
Yet ACCIONA Agua is much more than a world leading desalination company. We have also designed and constructed 300 wastewater treatment plants and 14 tertiary treatment plants which provide water suitable for reuse. Among the WWTPs that ACCIONA Agua has designed and is building is the Atotonilco WWTP which is the largest in the world with capacity of 3,024 ML/d.
Through continued investment in our Water Technology Centre, maximum effort is put into technological research, development and innovation, enabling us to become a leading company in the sector. The research team is engaged in more than 20 projects and the R&D center (located in Barcelona, Spain) features pilot plants dedicated to the energy optimization of water treatment plants and services. Thanks to this intense research activity, ACCIONA Agua has filed more than 14 patents related to desalination, membranes and reuse bioreactors and water technologies.
The Adelaide Desalination Plant (South Australia) is now under operations contract for the next 20 years by ACCIONA Agua and its Australian partner, Trility. The plant is a vital component of the south Australian Government's plan to secure the water supply for 50% of the population of Adelaide, a city with one million inhabitants.
The design and construction of the plant has been carried out by the Adelaide Aqua consortium in which ACCIONA Agua had lead the design and technology processes.
