According to 2022 data from the International Desalination Association, 22,800 desalination plants can supply 110 million cubic meters of fresh water per day; in 2017, there were 18,000 of them, generating around 97 million cubic meters. They provide some 300 million people with drinking water and support agriculture in arid countries and mining industries. […]

Spanish companies such as Abengoa and Ayesa have constructed the world’s largest reverse osmosis desalination plant in Saudi Arabia, operational since last December, serving the water needs of approximately 3,000,000 people.
Aid totalling €2,190 million will be invested to combat the consequences of the current drought with the aim of increasing water resources. Although the Government passed the decision for a desalination plant, it did not specify the area in which it would be built.
An irrigation community has built a 786 kW floating solar array on a small water reservoir in Murcia, Spain. The facility will provide power for a solar water pumping system, a desalination unit, and the community itself.
Comunidad de Regantes de Águilas, a Spanish irrigation community, recently completed the installation of a floating PV plant on one of its irrigation ponds in the municipality of Águilas, in the southern Spanish region of Murcia.
Tedagua will develop a digital twin to optimize the management of desalination plants in their O&M contracts – Spain, Europe
- This digital twin will provide differential added value for the company and our clients, mainly in three aspects: cost optimization, access to information by applying visual intelligence, and increased cybersecurity.
- Data processing has become so important in the water sector in the last five years, especially in projects related to artificial intelligence, that it requires the development of an appropriate data processing strategy.
The project will be carried out in three phases. A first phase where all the relevant data will be collected and structured during the operation […]
ACCIONA has launched its WITNESS project with the aim of developing a biological indicator to preventively determine the presence of agents causing fouling in seawater reverse osmosis desalination processes.
The new indicator developed by ACCIONA will provide a preventive diagnosis to adjust the operating conditions of the desalination plants, in order to minimise fouling and, therefore, its consequences on the desalination process.
Together with other operation indicators of the reverse osmosis stage, the WITNESS indicator will be integrated into an Artificial Intelligence-based fouling potential prediction tool, which will be validated in the innovation facilities […]
Tedagua continues to curb water emergency in Canary Islands, with desalination plant in El Hierro – Spain
This milestone comes just one year after the construction by Tedagua of two emergency desalination plants of 2,600 m3/day on the island of La Palma, also in record time, after the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano. Thanks to this, it was possible to save the production of multiple banana crops from the effects of said natural disaster and joins other recently built modular plants, such as the six 1,000 m3/day plants installed in Fuerteventura for the supply of drinking water.
TEDAGUA made a desalination plant in container format with 1,200 m3/day of product water available to […]
This supply is vital to the population for irrigating a good part of the 13,000 hectares of avocados and mangoes that are estimated to be in the eastern region. Their future may be seriously affected in the coming months if it continues without rain.
