Floating PV for water pumping, desalination – Murcia, Spain

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 makes strides to prevent fouling in reverse osmosis desalination – Spain, Europe

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 [

Mobile desalination plants to calm Mallorcan water crisis – Spain

“We have been assured that there will be no water shortages in any hotels this season,” a Balearic Islands’ tourist officer told edie.

The mobile desalination plants are being built in Palma, Andratx and Calvia, and politicians have promised that taxes will not be raised to pay for them.

A large, stationery desalination plant has been in operation in the Bay of Palma for a year now, but low rainfall last winter means that even the current supplies of desalinated water are not enough.

Axarquia desalination plant proposed by Junta to alleviate the drought – Spain

The subtropical sector of Axarquia is facing a truly apocalyptic scenario. La Viñuela reservoir contains barely 15.4 per cent of its capacity, with 25.4 cubic hectometres stored.

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.

As a result, the Junta de Andalucia has had a drought decree in force for the [

Subsidies needed to offset high cost of Almeria’s desalinated water – Spain

THE Mesa del Agua de Almeria committee wants to be included in possible government subsidies for desalinated water.

The Mesa, which represents the irrigation syndicates that supply Almeria’s agricultural growers with water, pointed out that the Environment Ministry is contemplating subsidies for areas receiving water from the Tajo-Segura pipeline.

With these transfers cut back, these grants would offset the “brutal” increase in desalinating water owing to the cost of electricity.

Solar revitalizes abandoned desalination plant in Spain – Spain

The Rambla Morales desalination plant near AlmerĂ­a, Spain, has been abandoned since 2011. However, it is now set to resume operations by fall 2022, according to a new document from Servicios HĂ­dricos 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 AlmerĂ­a and NĂ­jar.

With this water, 3,000 hectares could be irrigated, which is the equivalent of 10% of the irrigable area of ​​the entire [

Floating PV for desalination – Spain

There are parts of the world in which basic resources such as water are limited. The authorities in the Canary Islands, for example, are unable to supply all the water needed for the archipelago’s population, industry, and agriculture without resorting to techniques such as desalination.

Solar power could be a cost-effective way to power desalination plants in the Canary Islands, but the archipelago has a limited amount of land for PV facilities.

A mix of high population density, irregular topography, protected natural areas, and dependence on tourism makes [

‘So there!’ moment for Aguas del Almanzora – Spain

Agricultural growers, disenchanted with the different administrations’ failure to provide the water they need, are pinning their hopes on the Aguas del Almanzora desalination plant.

Plans will be made public next week by the company’s vice-president, Fernando Rubio, Spanish media sources revealed.

Ironically, the new plant will be located near the Villaricos plant in Cuevas del Almanzora, which was flooded in 2012 and has not been used since.
