Ferrovial Agroman and its subsidiary Cadagua have been awarded a contract to build a wastewater treatment plant in Valle de Guímar in Tenerife, Canary Islands.
The contract has been placed by the Tenerife Water Board (Consejo Insular de Aguas de Tenerife).
The scope of the contract includes the construction of the sewage treatment plant, including civil works, installation of equipment and facilities, commissioning and six months of operational tests in the municipality of Arafo on the island of Tenerife.
Upon completion of first stage, the treatment capacity of the new water treatment facility will be 7,000 cubic metres per day, which will increase to 10,500 cubic metres per day when Stage II is completed; however, this is not part of the present contract.
An integrated ultra-filtration membrane bioreactor system will be used to treat the activated sludge which abolishes the need to separate solids through the secondary clarifier and sand filters used in conventional activated sludge systems.
