Remodeling of biological treatment
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 contract is about renovate the biological treatment into an bio filter hybrid with fix biomass in a mobile support.
This contract is under the Water Quality National Plan development in the Alcalá Oeste WWTP.
The plant had a capacity of 74,818 m3/d for a population of 374,090 inhabitants. With the new legislation, the plant needs to adapt its capacity to 59,000 m3/d, which means a population of 280,250 inhabitants. Moreover, four biological reactor lines, with a total volume of 15,547 m3 will be renovate for an MBBR Hybrid Reactor - Active Sludge.
- Client: Canal de Isabel II
- Location: Alcalá de Henares, Madrid, Spain
- Population: 374,090 inhabitants
- Capacity: 74.818 m3/d
The actions to be carry out affects the following facilities:
- Treatment lines performance
- Water Lines
- Modifications in the biological reactor, with Hybrid bio filter. Turbo-Blowers and bio filters diffusors.
- Sludge Lines ( extension): Sludge internal Recirculation, reagents: ferric chloride and methanol
- New instrumentation equipment facilities.
- New electric equipment facilities.
