Population equivalent

Design, construsction and support

The contract will benefit more than 105,000 people, helping to enhance the quality of water returning to the Capibaribe river

ACCIONA will build a waste water treatment plant capable of processing 400 litres per second, potentially catering for a population of up to 197,000 (estimated for 2038, the project design horizon).

The sewer system will have more than 17.6 kilometres of sewer mains (to receive waste water from district sewers and transport it to the plant), 1.3 km of discharge sewers (for pumping waste water after treatment) and 4 pumping stations. The contract also includes designing the city’s entire sewer network and household connections.

The plant will be equipped with an automated treatment control and sewer monitoring system and a laboratory to monitor water quality. All these installations, along with the pumping stations, will be fitted with odour control systems.
