Potable water to the island of Pantelleria, Linosa and Lampedusa

ACCIONA has been awarded the contract for the supply of potable water to the islands of Pantelleria, Linosa and Lampedusa through the operation of modular seawater desalination plants over ten years.

The contract strengthens the presence of the water business of ACCIONA in Italy, and particularly in the Mediterranean area.

To supply Pantelleria, ACCIONA – through a temporary joint venture with Sofip and Protecno – will operate the plants in Sataria and Maggiuluvedi, using sea and brackish water respectively. Together, they will reach a total maximum flow of 2.2 million cubic meters (m3). The same partners are involved in Lampedusa and Linosa, and the seawater treated will reach a maximum annual flow of almost 2.4 million m3.

The objective is to renew the desalination facilities by including membranes for water treatment through inverse osmosis, which will mean energy savings and a lower water price for end users.
