Another service is the systematic evaluation of the supply and drainage networks. This ensures that in the municipalities where ACCIONA Agua manages the water supply, high yields are obtained with the use of the latest technologies available on the market for the detection and repair of leaks, thus minimising losses.
The cycle closes with the treatment of wastewater, after which it can be returned to its natural environment or reused in irrigation with minimum environmental impact, contributing to the sustainable development of integrated management.
In May 2009, the contract was signed for the construction and management over a period of 36 years of the services of the integral water cycle for 10 urban areas of the municipality with a population of around 5,000 inhabitants. This is the first contract to be awarded in Spin using the competitive dialogue model and is one of the largest in terms of investment in the Balearic Islands. The construction of these services will take 2 years and will create employment for some 200 workers.
The company began operations in Caceres on January 1st 2012, managing the city´s drinking water and provide sewer management and wastewater treatment services to the city for 24 years.
At present, ACCIONA Agua offers services to more than 180 municipalities in Spain, supplying a total population of nearly 7.5 million.
