Valoriza, through its Valoriza Agua and Sadyt subsidiaries, along with Sacyr Construcción, was awarded the design and Construction contract for the new Pelayos de la Presa Drinking Water Treatment Plant (DWTP), built for Canal de Isabel II in the Autonomous Community of Madrid. The facility implements membrane technology.
The contract for the design & construction of the new Pelayos de la Presa DWTP has a value of €12.2 M. The plant treats a maximum flow of 332 litres/second to satisfy the water supply needs of a population of 120,000. The necessary space and connections are in place to enable this capacity to be doubled in the future.
The treatment system has been designed to adapt to the particular needs of the feedwater: removal of iron and manganese; pre-oxidation; removal of solids by coagulation, flocculation and ultrafiltration; ozonation, granular activated carbon filtration and final disinfection with chlorine gas and ammoniacal solution. A conventional sludge treatment line is installed to treat the sludge produced at the DWTP.
The Pelayos de la Presa DWTP will enable the Madrid water supply utility, Canal de Isabel II, to supply the municipalities of Pelayos de la Presa, San Martín de Valdeiglesias, Rozas de Puerto Real, Cadalso de los Vidrios and Cenicientos, which together make up what is known as the Rincón Suroeste (Southeast Corner) of the Autonomous Community of Madrid. The facility has provided an alternative to the existing Rozas de Puerto Real DWTP.
