SARDINIA, Italy – Spanish engineering company ACCIONA Agua has completed construction of a desalination plant that will provide high-quality demineralised water to the Sarlux refinery (part of the Italian energy group Saras Spa), located in Sarroch, near Cagliari, in Sardinia, Italy.

The contract, worth 22 million euros, includes design and construction of the desalination plant as well as operation and maintenance for six years, with a possible three-year extension.

The plant has a daily production capacity of 12,000 m3/day of demineralised water through such processes as ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis and electrodeionisation to obtain ultra pure water without the need for chemicals.

The treated water will be used in industrial processes carried out by the Italian energy company at its refinery near Cagliari (Sardinia), one of the largest and most complex facilities of its type in Europe.

With a total footprint of approximately 1,260 m2, it is the largest desalination plant for industrial use in the Mediterranean, the Spanish company said.

Elsewhere Acciona has secured over projects in the country. It was recently awarded a contract to maintain and upgrade the water and sewage networks in several municipalities of the Florence province, in the Tuscany region.

Recent landmark projects include upgrading the Florence drinking water treatment plant (one of the largest in Italy) and a wastewater treatment plant north of Milan.

The company has been entrusted with maintaining and upgrading the water supply and sewer networks for Turin province, in Piamonte, one of the most important regions in the north of Italy.
