Designed and built to treat water from a reservoir

This plant was designed and built to treat water from a reservoir to provide drinking water to the Barlavento Algarvio region of Portugal. It has one water train and one sludge train.

It has been treating surface water from the Odelouca reservoir since 2012, and groundwater from the Vale da Vila and Benaciate basins. Construction began in October 1998 and was completed at the end of 1999, being ACCIONA's first project in Portugal.
