Abengoa to build SWRO plant in Agadir, Morocco
03 Jun 14 by desalination
Spanish contractor Abengoa has been chosen by Morocco’s Office National de l’Electricité et de l’Eau Potable (ONEE) to construct a new desalination plant in Agadir, Morocco.
The € 82 million plant, Morocco’s largest, will supply 100,000 m³/d of drinking water to the inhabitants of Greater Agadir, contributing to the major development taking place in this region, especially in the tourism, agrifood and industrial sectors.
Abengoa will be responsible for the design, technology and construction, as well as its subsequent maintenance and operation for a 20‑year period. The seawater reverse-osmosis plant will have ultrafiltration pretreatment.
Abengoa has been present in Morocco since 1977 and has offices in the cities of Rabat and Casablanca. It has carried out major large-scale projects in the region, such as the world’s first Integrated Solar Combined Cycle plant located in Ain Beni Mathar.
