About the entity

The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food in Spain has put out a contract worth 40.4 million euros ($43.1 million) for the improvement of the energy efficiency of the Carboneras desalination plant in Almería, in the south of Spain, according to Europa Press.

The project aims to replace the facility’s outdated turbines with more energy-efficient systems, reducing energy consumption in the desalination process. It will have a treatment capacity of 120,000 cubic metres per day and a completion period of 48 months. The upgrade will involve converting the current twelve production lines into five lines with double the production capacity.

The improvements will be carried out gradually to ensure a continuous water supply. The contract includes the supply, installation, and adjustment of electrical and mechanical equipment, as well as necessary modifications to existing facilities. The project is financed through Next Generation funds.
