Lantania to build the Trespaderne WWTP


  •  The contract awarded by the Ministry of Development and Environment of the Regional Government of Castile and León, through Somacyl, amounts to 1.6 million euros

Madrid, 18th February 2021. Lantania, in a joint venture with Contratas y Obras San Gregorio, will build the Trespaderne Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Burgos. The contract awarded by the Ministry of Development and Environment of the Regional Government of Castile and León, through the Public Infrastructure and Environment Corporation, Somacyl, amounts to 1.6 million euros, including taxes. The works are aimed at improving the water cycle in Burgos and are scheduled to be completed within 18 months.

The project aims to provide a wastewater treatment solution in the centre of Trespaderne by installing a new sewer line that will direct sewage to the newly built treatment plant, guaranteeing adequate discharge conditions to the receiving watercourse.

The new treatment plant will serve 2,800 residents and will guarantee a daily flow of 636 cubic metres, which can be increased to 816 cubic metres per day in seasonal periods. The planned actions will consist of pre-treatment, extended aeration biological treatment, sludge treatment and partial filtration for the reuse of treated water for irrigation and industrial purposes.

This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) whose objective is to promote territorial, social and economic cohesion, development and sustainable management of European natural resources.

With this new contract, Lantania strengthens its position in the water sector. The company was recently awarded the contract to improve and expand the Almansa WWTP (Albacete) and is completing work on the Nerja treatment plant (Malaga), among other projects. The Group strengthened its Water division with the acquisition of Soil Tratamiento de Aguas Industriales and DEISA IWS last year.
