Escrito por Tedagua: 27-06-2014

TenerifeThe Local Public Entity Balsas de Tenerife (BALTEN) has entrusted the Joint Venture (JV) formed by Tedagua (80%) and Syocsa-Inarsa (20%) for the operation, maintenance and conservation of the reuse and desalination facilities managed by the entity on the island of Tenerife. The contract has a budget of around 5 million Euros for the initially-planned term of three years, with a possible extension of three additional years.


The facilities included in the service awarded are integrated in the following infrastructures:


  • • Reuse Tertiary Treatment through a continuous filtration process with a maximum nominal treated water flow rate of 32,000 m3/day in the Santa Cruz Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP).
  • • 15,000 m3 capacity regulator tank and reused water pumping station in the above plant, with a nominal capacity of 2,160 m3/hour at a height of 220 metres.
  • • 15,000 m3 capacity regulator tank for conveyance, situated in the district of El Tablero, in the town of Santa Cruz.
  • • Pumping Station with a 432 m3/hour capacity at a height of 166 m of reused water stored in the El Saltadero regulation pond in Granadilla.
  • • Desalination Station in the "Complejo Hidráulico de Valle de San Lorenzo" (San Lorenzo Valley Hydraulic Complex), in the town of Arona, with a nominal regenerated water production capacity of 12,000 m3/day.
  • • Desalination Station in the "Sistema Adeje-Arona" (Adeje-Arona System), in the town of Adeje, with a reused water production capacity of 8,000 m3/day.
  • • Underground water Desalination Station, with a production capacity of 4,000 m3/day, and Pumping Station to the Montaña de Taco regulation pond, with a nominal capacity of 864 m3/hour at a height of 107 m. All the above is located in the "Complejo Hidráulico Isla Baja" (Isla Baja Hydraulic Complex), in the town of Buenavista del Norte.


TenerifeThe facilities that made up the seven infrastructures included in the Service are located all over the surface inside the three points of the triangle defining the island of Tenerife, with distances between the facilities of up to 90 km. The correct planning of the service will therefore require a balanced team of personnel and important synergies in the three predominant activities: filtration, desalination and elevation. The integration of BALTEN's current remote control systems and their development will mean one of the main challenges in the integral operation of this vast System.


Tedagua thus secures one of the most important water infrastructure and use service contracts in the Canary Islands, where the company was first set up in 1983.
