We bring reverse osmosis to Peru
CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Over 844 million people in the world live without access to a basic drinking water service, and 2.3 billionhave no access to a basic sanitation service, resulting in avoidable deaths, chronic disease, fewer hours of education and low productivity.
ACCIONA has positioned itself as a key player in the water treatment sector. Its innovative management seeks to resolve the challenges with respect to the shortage of water resources.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy accounts for 74 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. This activity is the largest contributor to global warming. Investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low-carbon technologies will continue to be essential to meet the emerging needs of humanity and to minimize their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its effects to be a strategic priority. The company works to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in order to contribute to the progress of society and respond to the main challenges of sustainable development in the areas of infrastructure, water and energy, leading the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The Talara SWDP has a production capacity of 2,200 m³/day. It is the first desalination plant using reverse osmosis technology at the industrial level in Peru. The contract includes the operation of a seawater catchment system with a capacity of 13 m³/second and a 250-litre/second desalination plant, equivalent to 7,884,000 m³ a year.
The contract will involve the production of 21,600 m³/day of demineralized water, the catchment and supply of seawater, services related to the start-up of the plant and the supply of demineralized water for 10 years, the implementation of a closed-circuit cooing system and the treatment and discharge of industrial and sanitary effluents from the new Talara refinery in Peru.
The project consolidates the relations between ACCIONA and PETROPERU, which date back to 2001, when the 2,000 m³/day desalination plant that ACCIONA has operated since then entered service. It also strengthens ACCIONA’s commitment to sustainability and the social policies jointly developed with the Peruvian group.
