Acciona turns over US$127 million Putatan II drinking water treatment plant to Maynilad
Manila, Philippines – Acciona, a Spanish global leader in providing sustainable solutions for infrastructure and renewable energy projects, recently turned over the US$127 million Putatan II drinking water treatment plant in Muntinlupa to its client, Maynilad Water Services Inc., after involvement in its design and construction up to its operation and maintenance for the first 12 months.
Through advanced reverse osmosis technology that uses a small carbon footprint, the new plant treats 150,000 cubic meters of raw water per day from Laguna de Bay, the largest lake in the Philippines and the second-biggest inland freshwater lake in Southeast Asia, to provide clean and potable water to nearly 1.5 million people.
Further strengthening its presence in the Philippines, Acciona bagged another Maynilad contract to put up a plant with similar requirements in the Laguna Lake area.
“One of Acciona’s goals in the country is to supply clean drinking water to as many households as possible,” Ruben Camba, Acciona Country Manager, said.
Acciona previously won the contract to construct the 650-meter Cebu-Cordova cable-stayed bridge that will provide a faster and more accessible connection between Cebu’s industrial zone and Mactan International Airport and to Cordova’s new urban developments on Mactan Island.
Acciona is a global company with a business model based on sustainability. Its aim is to respond to society’s main needs through the provision of renewable energy, infrastructure, water and services.
