Spanish firms tapped for water turnkey contract in Ecuador

Spanish companies Acciona and BTD have been awarded a 27mn euro (US$30.1mn) contract to upgrade water supply in the Ecuadorian city of Esmeraldas.

Awarded as a turnkey project, the works include expanding the water intake that draws from the Esmeraldas River, new water pumps and modules, a new potable water pumping station and upgrades to the existing water treatment plant, among other components.

Once completed the water intake will have a flow rate of 3,200ls, Acciona said in a release.

Further works also include new wastewater piping and collector lines.

The project, which is being financed by the IDB, will be carried over a 2-year period. Acciona holds a 51%-interest in the contract while BTD's stake is 49%.

Madrid-based Acciona is also building a wastewater treatment plant in the Ecuadorian city of Ibarra, with a contract value of US$29mn, and the company is also a member of the consortium building the first metro line in Quito.
