Construction and commissioning of Los Angelinos DWTP.
The new plant will serve the needs of the municipalities of Bucaramanga, Floridablanca and Girón. These are classified by the Colombia Institute of Hydrology, Meteorology and Environmental Studies (IDEAM) as drinking water shortage high risk areas in dry years and during long summers.
ACCIONA Agua (75%) is partnering with the Colombian firm Construvicol (25%) to carry out the construction and commissioning of the DWTP. It will also undertake operation and maintenance functions for a month. In its initial phase, the plant will have a treatment capacity of 51.8 million litres per day and supply drinking water to 350,000 people.
The works include a control building, contact tanks, storage tanks, a disinfection plant, a power station, access roads and exterior works, and a sludge treatment plant to be shared with the Bosconia DWTP.
The project site is in the vicinity of the city of Bucaramanga, Santander Department, Colombia. It will be funded entirely by Acueducto Metropolitano de Bucaramanga (AMB).
