Spanish firm to build desalination plant in Los Cabos – Mexico

A desalination plant will be built in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, to solve a drinking water shortage.

Spanish infrastructure conglomerate Acciona will manage the project and invest €134.5 million (around US $165 million) in the public-private scheme, with construction expected to take 24 months.

The plant will benefit 464,000 residents, producing 250 liters of drinking water per second, equivalent to seven million cubic meters per year.
