Design, construction, and subsequent operation and maintenance

The DWTP will have a capacity of 200,000m³/day to serve a population of two million people.

The consortium integrated with ACCIONA, Prime Metro BMD Corporation (PrimeBMD) and Santa Clara International was awarded by Manila Water with the contract of the design and construction of the East Bay 2 drinking water treatment plant (DWTP). The project is located in the city of Pakil, 70 kilometers southeast of the metropolitan area of Manila, capital of the Philippines.


The contract includes a pretreatment phase, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis and an 18,000m³ storage tank for brine treatment.


The plant will draw water from Laguna Bay, the largest lake in the Philippines and the second largest inland freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. This will ensure clean, good-tasting and healthy water.


  • Client: Manila Water
  • Location: Pakil, La Laguna, Philippines
  • Population served: 2,000,000 inhabitants
  • Capacity: 200,000 m³/day

One of the main features of ACCIONA's plants in the Philippines is the advanced treatment of raw water (water that has not gone through any treatment to date). The new plant represents a significant step forward towards providing drinking water to an increasingly larger proportion of the population. Many homes in the Philippines do not have access to drinking water despite the abundance of water resources in the country.


This is the third contract that ACCIONA has won in the Philippines, after the Putatan DWTP, with a capacity of 150,000m³/day in operation since 2020, and the Laguna Lake DWTP (also with 150,000m³/day), currently under construction. ACCIONA also opened its new commercial office in Manila in 2019.
