The Rambla Morales desalination plant near Almería, Spain, has been abandoned since 2011. However, it is now set to resume operations by fall 2022, according to a new document from Servicios Hídricos Agricultura y Ciudad SL, a subsidiary of Aqualia.

The project to restart the facility will provide 20 cubic hectometres of water per year to the surrounding area, which includes the municipalities of Almería and Níjar.

With this water, 3,000 hectares could be irrigated, which is the equivalent of 10% of the irrigable area of ​​the entire province of Almería, or 60% of the irrigable area of ​​Níjar.
