The GS Inima Environment / Ciclagua consortium will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of Lot 1, comprising 44 wastewater treatment plants in the Comptat and Marina Alta district.
The Entidad Pública de Saneamiento de Aguas Residuales de la Comunidad Valenciana (EPSAR) has awarded a consortium made up of GS Inima Environment (50%) and Ciclagua (50%) a contract for the operation and maintenance of 44 small municipal sewerage and wastewater treatment systems in the province of Alicante. The four-year contract has a one-year extension option and is worth 6,607,678.3 million euros plus VAT.
The bid submitted by GS INIMA-CICLAGUA was deemed the best by EPSAR technicians, particularly in the section referring to optimisations. The improvements proposed by GS INIMA / CICLAGUA focus on the use of renewable energies and reducing carbon footprint. A total of 352 solar panels with power outputs of 465 Wp will be installed in the different facilities covered by the contract, giving a total installed capacity of 164 kWp.
The system has a combined treatment capacity of 7,500 m3/day to treat the water of over 20,000 inhabitants. It also provides ultrafiltration-based tertiary treatment to enable the treated water to be used for a diversity of purposes.
This new contract consolidates the position of GS Inima in Spain and more specifically in the Autonomous Community of Valencia, where the company already has three contracts with the Entidad Pública de Saneamiento de Aguas Residuales de la Comunidad Valenciana (EPSAR).
