- The desalination plant has a nominal capacity of 500,000 m3/day, capable of supplying more than 1.5 million people.
- Improvements will be made in the operation and management of the plant and the necessary projects will be defined to increase current production.
Tedagua has been awarded the technical assistance contract for the management of the Magtaa desalination plant, currently the most important plant in the country, in Africa and one of the largest in the world, located in Wilaya de Oran (Algeria).
The objective of the contract, whose duration will initially be one year, is to improve the operation of the desalination plant, with a nominal capacity of 500,000 m3/day, and thus guarantee the supply of drinking water to more than 1.5 million inhabitants of the population of Oran and its surroundings, as well as to the area's industry. Additionally, optimization actions will be implemented in the management of the operation and maintenance of the plant, and reform projects will be defined to increase current production.
The plant was built under a BOT scheme, in a public-private partnership, with the participation of the national company Algerian Energy Company (AEC), which promotes the promotion of large-scale desalination projects with national and foreign companies. The success of managing the operation of the Beni Saf desalination plant, with a capacity of 200,000 m3/day, has caused AEC to opt for Tedagua and Cobra Algérie for the work at the Magtaa plant.
The awarding of this contract will increase Tedagua's experience in the Algerian country, in addition to helping to strengthen the relationship with companies and public organizations in the country.
