ACCIONA will build the East Bay 2 drinking-water treatment plant in the Philippines

  • ACCIONA will build the East Bay 2 drinking-water treatment plant in the Philippines
  • The contract for the East Bay 2 drinking-water treatment plant (DWTP), awarded by Manila Water, covers the construction of the plant and one year’s operation and maintenance.

About the entity

The water business of ACCIONA concentrates on water treatment and reverse osmosis desalination, a technology in which it is the world leader.

Manila Water has awarded ACCIONA a contract for the design and construction of the East Bay 2 DWTP and its operation and maintenance for 1 year, as part of consortium together with Prime Metro BMD Corporation (PrimeBMD) and Santa Clara International. The project is located in the city of Pakil, 70 kilometres south-east of the metropolitan area of Manila, the capital of the Philippines.

The DWTP will have a daily capacity of 200,000 m³ and will supply a population of 2 million people. The contract includes a pre-treatment phase, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis and an 18,000 m3 reservoir tank with brine discharge through diffusers.

The plant will take water from Laguna Bay, the biggest lake in the Philippines and the second biggest inland freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. This will ensure clean water that tastes good and is healthy.

One of the main features of ACCIONA’s plants in the Philippines is the advanced treatment of raw water (water that has not received any previous treatment) and bringing drinking water to a larger population, where many households in the Philippines do not have access to water despite the abundant water resources in the country.

Experience in the Philippines

This is the third contract awarded to ACCIONA in the Philippines after the Putatan DWTP (150,000 m³/day), operational since 2020, and the Laguna Lake DWTP (150,000 m³/day) currently under construction. In 2019, ACCIONA also opened a new commercial office in Manila.
